    Description

    Actually we need 1- person from 4/5 September to 4/5 October. And then to 4/5 November. Working time about 15 hours per week. Working on garden, taking care about animals and occasionaly cleaning.


    Hello travellers, we are Matěj 10 years old and Jiří living together in alternatyve care week/week who have a farm in a small village, not even one hour from Prague by train. We grow potatoes, garlic, tomatoes, cucumbres, pumpkins, zucchini, currant, blueberries, strawberries, apples, pears, plums, walnuts, almonds, hazelnuts. We have a small greenhouse. We have one dog, sheeps, goats, chickens and rabbits. We´ve built everything on our own and have developed so far: irrigation system, chill out area, children space, space for yoga, pond for swimming, outdoor shower, fencing.
    We strive for sustainable life with respect for people, animals and nature.
    We are about to open a charity shop as well.
    We have a second house that we rent for short-term rentals.

    We need to help with cleaning the house, weeding garden, taking care of our farm animals (nothing too complicated ;) and other seasonal work around the house and garden.
    Our minimum stay is 2-3weeks and we prefer long-term stays (couple of months) since this is beneficial for both you and for us and you can learn more about sustainability, farming, animals and DIY.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You will have the opportunity to rest, spend some time in a nature and clear your head. I hope you will be able to realise yourself in the work I offer, learn something from me and teach me what you can do. In Czechia, we have many interesting workshops, meetups, seminars, concerts, theaters, beautiful nature and secret places where paths won‘t lead you and I will gladly become your guide in travelling not just on the map.
    In summer you can come with us on a trip with our sailboat.
