    Description

    WE ARE LOOKING FOR A NEW VOLUNTEERS FOR THE SPRING AND SUMMER 2024.

    My name is Marek and with my wife Ivana we bought a small farm where we grow organic vegetables, herbs, and fruits. We also have more projects here; we built a sauna and outdoor pizza oven. We try to live sustainable and ecological way of life, respecting the natural life cycles and conditions. We like to recycle things, learning about traditional farming here in south Moravia but also about new trends in organic farming from Scandinavia or overseas.

    Our goal is one day to have an independent place where we grow vegetables and run a workshops about various tasks such as ecology, gardening, yoga etc.
