    ~ Volunteers are welcome again from spring till autumn of 2021.
    Magyar önkénteseket is nagyon szívesen fogadnánk! ~

    Sziasztok! We are Csongi (35) and Ágota (27), a Hungarian couple living on the countryside of South-Eastern Hungary. Our farm is located in a tiny village, 8 km away from Szarvas, 10 km away from Békésszentandrás.

    Csongi is a super chef and a furnace-builder, he can work with adobe and wood, and fixes things around the household.
    Ágota has artistic abilities (music, sewing, painting,...), some knowledge about wild herbs and ritual practices.
    Both of us admire upcycling, creating and playing in general.

    Please read about our current projects and living conditions down below!

    We'd like to host 2-3 volunteers at a time (families still can come).
    If you request, we can provide you vegetarian or vegan dishes without a problem. We usually eat meat, too.

  • Alojamiento


    Our life is simple and comfortable, nothing too fancy, but we always have enough warmth and food for everyone.

    There's a small guest room in our house, where two people can sleep on a mattress. We also have a separate single mattress; and tents to use in the garden. We can provide blankets, pillows or sleeping bags.

    Smoking is allowed only outside of the house.

    Water: we have tap water to shower from our well. We go to a nearby well for drinking water. We collect rainwater for the garden.

    Toilet: there's a regular indoor and an outdoor composting toilet.

    Electricity: we have it from the system.

    No TV, no WiFi.

    Our village is very small, there are some pretty houses around us and a “wooden sculpture park”.

    There's also a small river at 10 minutes walking distance, where you can swim for free. We have extra bicycles that you can use to ride around the area.

    In Szarvas (8 km), there are some cute parks and more local sights to see.

    Public transport is working great, there's direct bus contact from Budapest to Szarvas and it takes 3 hours. With train it’s shorter time, but you have to change from one line to an other.
