    =========================================================
    PLEASE READ CAREFULLY!!

    We are happy to welcome you at our authentic Rail-way station that was turned in magic centre of art, ecology and friendship !

    We are entering a busy, busy summer , so now- all help is WELCOME - we need to clean and organize both inside and outside, prepare garden, tent field and the building for upcoming festivals (our main one 12-14 July "Festival of Collective Awareness", and then "Vegan World Festival" and "Izerbejdżan Eko Punk Fest"), maintain the building, clean the terrain. Volunteers take shifts in cooking. You will also join the festival team of more then 50 volunteers from all around the world!

    For accommodation we recommend and prefer that you take your tent.

    We have a van and in free time we can all go for trips to mountains, lakes, workshops- enjoy :)

    We provide simple food, two meals : breakfast and dinner. Otherwise volunteers can use a kitchen if they want to.
    =========================================================

    Our place is an ex-railway station that was inhabited some 20 years ago by a group of artists. It became a home of a theater and a cultural centre.

    It is situated near to the Sudety mountains and Czech border at the border of two villages: Wolimierz and Pobiedna.

    Every year, in the middle of summer we organise a festival gathering people in peaceful and friendly ambience surrounded with beautiful music, art and nature.

    We invite volunteers to come, stay and help with our everyday routine.

    Sometimes there is 50 people here, sometimes 2... be open :) Let the universe surprise you ...

    Usually the summer is vibrant and collorfull time of visits and work around and in autumn and winter we focus more on working inside. Making a fire to not get cold, making "winter cleaning" and some art works inside!


    Beside the work, you might enjoy beautiful mountains, hills, meadows, fields and forests, hiking and biking and visiting places of interests in the neighbourhood...

    We invite everyone no matter gender, nationality, occupation or age.

    The most important is good energy that you bring and positive attitude.

    warm greetings :)
