What kind of people am I looking for:
I am looking for people who want to learn new things related to building, gardening, farming - life in the countryside and/or people who are enthusiastic about physical work. I offer various kinds of work and if you don´t like or can´t do one thing, you can do another thing. But the main thing is that you DO something.
I need people who can really get something done. I am looking for people who are thinking of having their own farm or just want to learn how to do things or have some skills that they want to share. Or people who are interested in country life, self-sustainability, and living close to nature.
In exchange I offer a bed in the house or in the forest cabin (if it´s available), good food (sometimes quite strange food also, but always good) three times a day, some home-made wine, and day-trips by car if you are here longer.
The place is next to the forest and there is a lake nearby where it´s possible to go fishing. Walks in the forest, picking berries (June, July), picking mushrooms in the Autumn, exploring places of interest and towns, villages and cities nearby is a part of the experience. Sadly, also mosquitoes are a part of the experience from June until late August.
Preferred lenght of stay is 1-3 weeks, but of course you can stay longer if you like it here. So, if you still think you want to come, send me a message.
What will you be doing?
It could be gardening, building, making firewood, or even a bit of farming. It´s never a problem to find stuff to do. Cutting grass is a weekly job during the summer. Cooking something good could also be a thing to do (but only if you´re good at it!) :)
