There are a lot of projects and they are ever changing, as things do in the nature.
We are creating a small family with Elza in the rural part of Zemgale, where we live in one house and have a separate project each.
I'm building a creative space with gardens on an old farm house which has been passed down from my grandfather.
The Farm has been left abandoned and so very slowly we are trying to regurgitate it.
We have a few little projects building up there, including the restoration of a few buildings, finishing building some buildings, making a cellar, a sauna and always some gardening.
Almost every year we have a small festival and other small events transpire during the year. (if something will be happening will try to post on here)
Elza on the other hand is building a house in the middle of the forest with her father and me, she will soon also need help with planting a forest.
This is a small brief of what we have going on, for more please message.
DIY and building projects
Help with Eco Projects
For sure you can get closer to nature if visiting us, I would especially encourage going for walks into the forests. Me and Elza can share some cultural background of Latvia, share a little part of us and the spaces around us. Then depending on what help is needed, those things will also be learnt.
Also if you play basketball or chess your even more welcome to join us!
Sometimes I also make a small music event in a Bar in Dobele (which is the closets town) so if your a musician we can make a small musical performance.
The help needed over the summer would vary on what you are comfortable doing.
There will be lots of manual work, from building and reconstructing to gardening,
Maybe it will be time to pick berries or mushrooms from the forest.
The helped required may change depending on the time of the year, the projects happening on that particular time, and your skill and willingness to get involved.

With Elza we are staying in a large house, having 5 bedrooms, so most likely we would accommodate you in a very comfortable bed, otherwise there are sleeping spaces in the farm house, which most likely will be the accommodation during the summer months, especially if you are vising during a busy period.
As we live in the countryside, there are some beautiful forests to visit, there are lakes to swim in. We can give you a car to drive if you wish to visit any local sights. The beach is an hour and a half drive away, and the closest town is 15 min away, where buses run regularly, from there you can go to Riga in an hour and a half, if you wish to visit the Capital.
