  • Description


    About me: I am a Hungarian-Irish living in Hungary & England 😊

    I have inherited 4 small (4x1500m2) fields of vineyard and orchard from my great parents. A field each was gifted to my granddad and his siblings, but their descendant are not interested in gardening and I am the only one who would like to keep the family tradition of making wine and pálinka alive. 🙃
    Would you like to help? 😊

    My dad built a nice A-frame brick house with a big cellar on field1 that has 2 rooms upstairs, living room, kitchen, terrace. . It has no bathroom yet and no running water, but there is a water well where we get the fresh water from.

    There is a small house on field 2 with 1 room+kitchen, toilet. It also has a cellar and a storage room at the back.
    One of the project I need help with is to make the houses livable, they need clearing out and decorating,etc.

    There are many other projects if you like DIY. My dad has collected leftover building materials that he had planned to reuse, recycle, upcycle, create art from.. - sadly he passed away and could not finish his dream projects..

    Previously I have been involved in organising music events, festivals, song writing camps and planning to create a place/community for the same on the vineyard.

    The ideas are endless as regards to what we could create on the fields ea.: building small book exchange/library in the woods, a playground, a pool, a stopover for cyclist... And have many more ideas I just need partners in crime with a creative mind! 😎

    Hoping to connect with people of different nationalities, sharing our life experiences, knowledge and skills while we do sg useful, meaningful in a quiet, green & chilled atmosphere. 🙌

    September and October is the harvesting time. This is when I need your help the most. Picking apples, pears, grapes, making wine, pálinka. Preparing the garden for next year's fruition.

    There are different DIY projects that would require some experience/interest in creative DIY, construction, gardening, arts&crafts.
    Looking for open minded, creative ppl who are not afraid of thinking outside the box and have an independent mindset.
    I prefer unusual, quirky, unique, natural style rather than straight lines and
    even surfaces.. :)
    Some projects to mention:
    -to build an outdoor kitchen, pool, fence, treehouse, storage, playground, music studio, etc. All to create from recycling materials in a unique, creative way.
    -keep to maintain the vineyard and the fruit trees as organic as possible
    -renovate the existing buildings, etc.

    What else ...

    As the location is remote and located on a countryside surrounded by fields of crops, woods & vineyards
    -there are all kind of luvly creatures living around us like 🦊🦌🐭🐇🐀🦔🐿️🦇🦨🦎🐜🐛🦋🐌🐝🕷️🕸️🦟🦗🐞 - no wild animals that would do any harm to ppl though 😁
    -the centre of the village is about 30mins walk away, or you could use my bike/car, where you can take a train/bus to discover the nearest big cities Siófok or Székesfehérvár or could travel to/around the largest lake in Central Europe also been referred to as the Hungarian sea - Lake Balaton🌊 🏄‍♂️🚣🏊‍♂️🚵‍♂️
