We are a creative swiss-slovenian family with three children and we are working with teenagers in difficult situations in youth work.
We are vegan and our two older child are homeschooler. We have 7 horses (Appaloosa and Thoroughbred), 3 dogs, 4 cats, and 2 hens. We run a small therapeutic / socio pedagogical ranch in Slovenia and offer positive contact to animals, especially horses. We also have a tiny offer of vegan tourism.
We live in a great green environment with beautiful view on the Slovenian alps. Our ranch is located on a idyllic reposeful place at the end of "Gorenska", 20 km out of Ljubljana. Our small village is affected by agriculture and its marvelous setting is inviting to relaxation and just being.

Help around the house
We are a open family and like contact and sharing our experience. We can tell you more about holistic alternative mindset, attachment parenting, diaperfree babies, homeschooling, natural birth, vegan cooking, positive dog and horse training and much more. I am a native German speaker.
We're looking for help mostly with the horses, but also with walking the dog, help with housekeeping, do some activities with the kids and some work on the ranch.
We would prefer you to stay up to a few month, but it's not must.
We live in a charming old warm house close to the forest and green pastures. You will have your own room and also a separate bathroom. Our family lives in the upper floor, so there is also privacy. WiFi is available, but we don't like internet junkies! Come to our beautiful place because of the great location, the animals and because of the joy of sharing good moments with people, not for WhatsApp hours and hours...
We live on a vegan diet and try to cook and eat healthy and balanced. The people used to say that we are very good cooks ;)
Public transport to or from Ljubljana by bus is available. We could also pick you up from the airport. One day trips to Ljubljana, Shopping or other nice places are possible and good to reach.
