We are a family: Renia and Adrian and our daughters Tosia(6) and Jagna (1).
We moved to a countryside 3 years ago.As we've finished (almost) renovation of a house, we are re-establishin g farm to be productive. For the moment we have some goats, sheeps and hens for own use. There is also an orchard and small vegetable garden to take care of.
Depending on what you prefer - there are many things to do. You can help taking care of our children and house so we can spend more time doing things outside but it's ok if you take care of our animals or help building goat-house (with straw and clay) or wooden terrace or a pond or a henhouse or a fence or whatever is going to be done.
As, with 4 other families, we do home-schooling for our children (2-3 times/week) - you can also teach English, do some workshops etc.
We also run an online shop with musical instruments (gongs, tibetan bowls, tank-drums, drums, handpans, kalimbas etc.) so it's possible to use some of them to play if you'd like to.
We live in Moszczenica near Gorlice (there are 3 more villages with the same name in Poland).

As we live on a countryside we use goat milk to do our own cheese, we make bread. Also we pick wild herbs to use as a tea and as a help with diseases. You can lern from us how to do this things. We also can show you traditional regional dishes: ex. made of mushrooms we pick every year.
We are also opened for knowledge and experiences with dishes from all over the world.
As Renia loves crafts and know how to make different arts and things using traditional methods you can learn a lot from her. How about shearing a sheep and making a wool scarf on your own ?
You can make your own pottery with us and decorate it with regional paintings.
In coming time we have some natural building projects (goat's house and hen-house) so yo can take some knowledge and experience about that back home.
We are opened for new experiences/knowledge with organic farming, crafts and cooking.
As mentioned before are different works you can do - depending on your abilities and will.
You'll have a room for your own in our house.
If you prefer - you can sleep in a tent and use bathroom inside a house.
Lot of things on our plates are mede of our own milk, eggs, vegetables, fruits. We also but a lot from our neighbours. Staying at our place will be an oppotunity to experience natural food and traditional Polish cuisine. We also would like you to show us how to prepare food in a different way, that might be inspiring !
Krakow is 2 hours away. There are beautiful hills, mountains and forests in the area (with plenty of mushrooms which we pick every summer/autumn). Good area for walks and bike tours.
