  • Description


    We are a small family of three, Luka (45), Vedra (42) & Zora (2,5). Recently we sold our city apartment and moved to a beautiful rural part of Slovenia known for great air, beautiful woods, gorgeous landscapes dotted with horses and cattle...and of course bears :)
    We are a family which moves around a lot, we love to travel, be it on the road or sea. Vedra used to travel as a workawayer, Luka is a sailboat captain, Zora is a gipsy :D
    We love our new community and surroundings, however, there are parts of our house we would like to change and would really enjoy some help with that... the construction (mostly in woodwork) and the little creative projects in the garden...and house possibly.
    We would also like Zora to be exposed to other languages as she is a sponge right now, and welcome also longer term volunteers who would be interested in playing with her for a couple of hours a day.
    As we are quite outgoing, there are often people around our house.

    We primarily need help in August and September 2021 with tearing down some wooden walls and construction connected to that.

    But we are also happy to receive volunteers with creative ideas for the garden and house.
