We are a friendly foundation working with rescue animals and handicapped children. We use innovative animal assisted therapy methods including art therapy in a natural woodland surrounding. Our animal shelter/farm is in a quiet, secluded forest in the Polish countryside, perfect for walking meditation.

Your chance to slow down by living and working in nature, with some physical work and getting hands dirty but also working with kids (optional).

Calling nature & animal lovers! Help out in a small forest animal shelter/foundation and learn modern animal assisted therapy methods for helping kids. Mostly we need help during the day (2-4h) with general farm work and care for dogs, horses, sheep, mini goats, chickens, rabbits, pet rats and stick insects. Take days off during the week to help out with kids groups visiting on the weekends (3-4h) with optional overtime paid (tbd).
We can host 1-3 workaway nature lovers, we accept couples and throuples.
Our minimum stay is 1 month, preferred is 2-3 months.
Your own room with standard size bed with big windows and plenty of light as well as a space to work. The house and surrounding area has WiFi (due to remote location speed is limited). Shared bathroom with hot shower. Fully stocked kitchen, meals would be shared in the house.
The location is quiet (unless you count the animal sounds) and secluded. If you're looking to disconnect from the rush of city life but keep the comforts of a modern home this is the place. It's a great place to recharge your batteries. Our land overlooks a river and kayaking trips can be arranged. Nature walks all the time any time.
