    Description

    Hello, I am Yves! We have a little collective of festival organizers, builders, farmers and entrepreneurs, and we work on a biiiiig piece of land (6 hectars) on the hills of Vis island for the past year and a half. We aim at building some sort of self sustainable eco village, blending life in nature together with arts and education. We are currently busy with several projects, such as restoring ruined stone houses, building camping units, cleaning the land, and growing food.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    As people have been living on our land centuries ago, working here will teach you a lot about ancient culture and history of the island, from the Roman empire to the war of Yugoslavia. Vegetation is rich and abundant, so there is a lot to learn on that field too. If you work with us, you'll learn about farming in the Mediterranean climate, about carpentry, or about running cultural events. We also all love to cook, and we like to ferment things!

    Ideally, we would like you to stay with us at least for 10 days, so there is time not only for helping out, but also for swimming, hiking, and unlocking the island hidden secrets! On site, we have solar panels, basic shower, many hammocks, two cats, 15 chickens, no neighbors, incredible panoramic view, breathtaking sunrises and sunsets.

    We provide you 3 meals a day and accommodation in exchange of 4-5 hours help per day, 5 days a week.

    Help

    At this stage, what we need the most are skilled DIY, since we are building various objects on the land. Also, as we still have big area that needs to be cleaned, there is plenty of tasks for gardeners. Creative minds, proactive and motivated people are generally welcome since there is lots to do and to create!
    We are also keen to host people with mechanic skills, who could take care of our cars and machinery.
