    We have an organic vegetable garden (permaculture). We grow different sorts of vegetables, also ancient sorts. We have a cat.
    We speak German, English, French, Spanish and some Czech.
    We would appreciate an opportunity to practise the Czech language. My wife (she was a teacher) can offer you lessons or conversation in German, English, or Spanish.

    The help here can include general chores in the house (cleaning, dishwashing, washing, cooking, and baking) and around the house, especially in the organic garden (gardening: seeding, planting, weeding, and watering the plants) and cutting and collecting wood in the forest (by hand).

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    What do we expect from our volunteers:

    Only non-smokers, no animals.
    We expect nice and polite behaviour and willingness to do some work. Please count on becoming part of the family for the time of your stay!
    We live in a very small village without many possibilities for distraction. If you come from a city, you should be able to appreciate the calm and the solitude.

    Because we are not a "big" place we prefer short-time (term) stays: weekend or one week, but we are open for other possibilities.
    The village of Vèvrov is situated 6 km from Horsovsky Tyn and about 40 km from Pilzen towards the border of Germany.
    There are bus connections to Horsovsky Tyn. From there we can take you home by car.
