    After very difficult times, we need help in starting a new life.

    In the last week of April, from 28 of April to 5 of May, we will have a special international volountary week, with hopefully many helping hands. In this special week we are organising educational programs for each day after work: either workshops at the farm around special topics (organic farming, renewable energy, environmental issues, garbage, social issues, inequality) or visiting other projects in the neighbourhood.

    We are an organic family farm with many children, islandic horses and lots of other animals. We are located in the Mátra Mountain - which is the highest point in Hungary, but still only 1045 m. :) There are wonderfull hiking ares around our farm, you need not cross a street to be able to walk or ride for hours.

    Unfortunately we had hard times in our family life, after divorce and selling our previous farm me and my children are trying hard to build a new farm. We lost almost everything, what we loved: we had to sell our farm, sell many horses and other animals, and to say good buy to something we thought to be our family, due to divorce. We started again at point zero, on an abandoned land, where wineyards used to be and the wires of the fomer whineyards are still in the ground, causing deathly damage to all wild and domestic animals. Therefore we are collecting those old rosty cabels of wires, cutting the bush to renew the pastures (before the wine originally this peace of land used to be a hugh pasture), collecting garbade and constructing a very simple house. We would need help in constructing works, especially welcome hard working persons and men, but there is work with creating a "garden", planting trees, growing vegetables, pinting, renewing fences etc.

    In exchange you can have a lot of free time, in the area around or travel to Budapest, which is only at one hour distance. You can ride, walk, hike, climb, ride a bike, or just enjoy the sun and relax. We have a small pool to.

    Besides we have social projects as well, visiting gipsy kids in slums and organising summer camps. We are still continuing our work with socially or physically disadvantaged families and children. Not only we had very severe times, but these families also. The Covid pandemics and the actual economic breakdown are hitting badly the poorest families. Children play on the streets without supervision or any programs, and are happy if we bring some excitement in the days.

    In the summer we will again organize free camps for children with very poor economic and social backgrounds. Last summer we hosted over 30 kids from ghettos with very bad housing conditions, no bathrooms, unemployment, drugs, and crime. Most of them never had the opportunity to travel or to have a vacation. Some of them experienced a shower for the first time in their lives. The actual social and political situation in Hungary worsened the social exclusion and discrimination of Roma and all disadvantaged groups dramatically. From the official site, there is no more subvention or support of NGOs to work with these problem groups - no, all these organizations are targets of hate campaigns. So we really need helping hands and caring, open-minded people with big hearts.

    Budapest is only 80 km, reachable in about 60 minutes.
