  • Description

    Description

    We are a farm retreat community on the coast of Montenegro in the magnificent Kotor Bay area.

    (Please read our profile completely and carefully before sending us a request) 🙏🏽😊🌈☀️

    We decided to start a farm with a small organic garden and some animals to have fresh vegetables, cheese and eggs, living in the pure nature peacefully and sharing this peace & love with others 🙏🏽😊🍀❤️

    We are at the very beginning stage of our community retreat, so still working on making new gardens, fences for animals, clearing up the land from overgrown shrubs & bushes and of course having fun, having yoga & Meditation workshops, going to secret beaches around and basically enjoying our life in harmony with nature without using any intoxications.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You can learn about permaculture (doesn’t mean that we are living 100% based on Permaculture principles and off-grid), making cheese, taking care of chickens. And participating in our community workshops such as Yoga, Meditation, Dance and etc. (it doesn’t mean that we have workshops everyday)

    We enjoy our life here all together naturally without any excuse (Alcohol, Drugs, Smoking). If you use any but willing to change your habit or give a break, we will be all next to you to make it happen. 🙏🏽😊❤️

    *Update for Winter Stay*
    At the moment we only accept skilled volunteers in construction as described below or long term volunteers (minimum 3 months) preferably a couple to keep the house alive while we are gone in the winter. (From mid November till February). The working hours will be 3hours/day in the period that we are gone.

    Daily community Life:

    Our daily life in the community is pretty similar to any other farms which goes around feeding animals, watering the garden, cleaning, cooking and the most important one, Sharing a BIG SMILE! 😃

    Daily Project Tasks:

    If you are skilled in construction we are renovating a stone house and building some wooden bungalows or mud houses and some other small eco projects such as natural water filtration system, solar shower and so on.

    If you are not skilled the main task would be clearing up the land out of shrubs and bushes, weeding & trimming and helping in the stone house, so be prepared 💪🏽😉

    If you can share Yoga, Meditation, Dance or any conscious activities you are more than welcome. 😊🙏🏽 (Summer Activity)

    If you are a skilled Carpenter, Electrician or plumber contact us right now 🤙🏽😉

    By the way, since we mentioned at the beginning “please read our profile completely and carefully” we want to thank you for your respect for reading it down to here carefully and please send us your request with the code “olive” in the subject of your message so we can recognize you easily. 😉🙏🏽

    We are sharing our life with our volunteers so it is very important to us who is joining Pachamama Family even for a short period therefore we always make a video call to know each other better before making our final decision.

    (Minimum Stay: 4 weeks)
    Based on our calendar we are a little bit flexible about the minimum stay.

    One of our volunteers told us that he had seen in some host's profile that they mentioned "WE ARE NOT YOUR PARENTS" 😃 We found it so funny but true, So We Are Not Your Parents Please take care of your personal desires. 🙏🏽😊 and we do our best to support you and take care of you as our brothers and sisters ❤️ Not our kids!!!
