  • Descripción


    Sziasztok! We are Csongi and Ágota (36&28), a Hungarian couple living on the countryside of Eastern-Hungary.

    Csongi is a chef and furnace-builder, loves to work with adobe and wood, fixes things around the household.
    Ágota loves sewing and other handcrafts, singing, learning about wild edible and medicinal plants.
    Both of us admire upcycling, creating and playing card games.

    Please read about our projects and living conditions down below!

    We would love to host volunteers who has at least interest or actual skills in building and gardening. Nomadic people, nature lovers, handymen (and women), creatives are welcome.

    We eat meat, we can easily provide vegetarian dishes, and cannot support very special diets.
    Usually we like to eat together.

    Our village is very small (~30 people), 8 km from Szarvas, 10 km from Békésszentandrás. Shopping is maximum once a week.

  • Ayuda


    The help we are looking for depends a lot on the current projects, your physical strength and abilities, and lot of times on the weather.

    Building things, taking care of the veggie garden, baking bread, collecting and cutting wood for winter, yearly maintenance (painting with lime, fixing the walls with clay).
    We can take turns with washing dishes and keeping the space clean.
    There’s place for creative ideas as well.

    We are not "clock-watchers”, but in summer when it’s hot during the day, we prefer to work early morning and late afternoon when the temperature drops down.

    Public transport: there's direct BUS contact from Budapest to Szarvas (3 hours). The TRAIN is a bit shorter in time, but then you have to change from one line to an other.
    We can pick you up at “Szarvas szivattyútelep” bus station, which is 2 km from our house.

    There's a small lake at 10 minutes walking distance, where you can swim in the summer.

    We have extra bicycles you can use to explore the area.

    In Szarvas (8 km), there are some cute parks, nice buildings and shops.
