    Description

    Dear guests, thank you for visiting our profile. our farm is located 20 minutes away from picturesque plitvice lakes which attracts more than a million tourist every year. We have a big chunk of land where we are planning to build eco houses and have a permaculture design farm. The farm has a lot of nature around in and around it including some wild animals like wild boers and deer. We would love to have volunteers who are enthusiastic in learning new skills, building eco houses. It would be nice if you have skills in this fields but We are working on covering our house with wood and insulating it, so lovers of wood works this is your chance! My husband has arm injury therefore he can't do much but he can explain to you how to do the jobs.

    It would be our pleasure to host you and share some great time with you. See you soon. Smoking is only allowed outside the house. NB: We just started.

    We will work hand in hand with you to construct buildings, use different techniques of permaculture gardening,and of course run the apartments in terms of cleaning. The idea is to be self sustained when it comes to food therefore we will produce most of the food we will eat at home. We live in a serene environment whereby we are the only young couple in the whole village.The main job currently is insulating the wall of one of our houses. Our dream is to revive a dying village and we would like you to become part of the dream. We have 3 year old an 2 year old sons. We will be having our meals together and you will have have a caravan which you will possibly share with another volunteer. We also like playing board games so you are welcome to join us in the evenings to play with us. We are open to new ideas so don't be shy to contribute whatever idea you think can benefit the farm. Chiel has a lot of knowledge about permaculture which he would gladly share with you. We also like travelling and meeting new people which are some of the reasons that we would be thrilled to meet you. As much as we like the company of the volunteers we also like having our own family time and that's important. See you soon.
