Helping at the start means helping with the rough work, with its own special attraction, good physical labour in a healthy environment, simple strong meals, camping style living, recognizing herbs, improvising, inspiration gathering … small groups of workawayers made a good part of the great atmosphere as you can read in the reviews.
Just write what you would like to do.

As has been proven previously with so many enthousiast sharers, we all teach each other, to cook, to learn various skills in building, some learned dry walling, some learned to handle electric equipment, how to log firewood, gardening, permaculture, herbalism and more, but we always ask what you would like to gain from this workaway experience and after a few days we ask if that is still the same, it may change once you get used to the environment ...
There are tasks for virtually everyone, from general maintenance of the retreat, building to farming. Just apply and tell us what you like best or what you want to learn and we will tell if we can do that. It is possible to create an addition to your CV. All jobs can be chopped into smaller more easier or more labourous tasks as per skill and capacity. We like to offer the help also as a training, which makes it more fun.
We expect you to volunteer 4-5 hrs/5 days, cooking is a shared activity. If you can teach, please let know what you would like to teach. If you want to offer a special skill, also write us. If you want to learn a special skill too.
