    Descripción

    We are a young family living our dream. Both city-born, we built a small organic farm, located under the Jizera mountains in the northern tip of the country at the border with Germany and Poland. On our 6 hectare farm we keep 20 goats and sheep, have an orchard of 50 fruit trees and grow cut flowers and vegetables on 1200m2. We aspire to be self-sufficient in meat, dairy products, fruits and veg. Together with our two children of 3 and 5 years we live in a small wooden sustainable house.
    Our village is near Liberec city and easily reachable by bus and train from Prague, Berlin or Dresden.

    Workawayers are welcome to help with:
    - teaching our children English
    - gardening (digging, planting, weeding, seeding, harvesting),
    - helping with produce
    - assisting at wooden constructions
    - very little animal care- feeding animals, giving water, clearing the animal sheds and the chicken coop

    If you have any special skills: carpentry, electricity, tiling, photography, video, let us know and we will find a project for you!

    We start working latest at 8.30am. The afternoons are then more free for you to wander in the forest, go for a bike ride or just rest on our porch or garden.

    I appreciate a rotation in cooking as we like to try different meals. Who is not cooking clears the table after meals and washes dishes (we have a small dishwasher for cups and plates). Help with basic cleaning is expected as sweeping the floor in spaces we share (about 25m2) or cleaning the shower after use. These household chores are part of the daily routine and everybody has to pitch in. If you love cooking and you are willing to cook everyday for 6 people from scratch, let me know :)

    March/April: Cleaning the goats shed, moving manure around garden, helping with installing animal fences
    May/June: Preparing firewood, lots of weeding and planting, canning.
    July/August: Weeding, helping with produce, picking flowers, canning.
    September/October: Clearing all garden beds, adding manure to them, planting bushes, seeding, transplanting, canning produce.

  • Alojamiento

    Alojamiento

    ACCOMODATION:
    Workawayers will be accomodated in a wooden cabin. The cabin is quite small (9m2) and is 20m from our house. It is furnished with two beds (you will probably share the cabin with another volunteer), a small kitchen and basic equipment (you will have electricity). Please bring your sleeping bag or at least a sleeping bag liner, and we can lend you one. Nights are always cold, even in the hottest summer!!!

    SHOWER AND WATER USE:
    Since we depend on our well and we have had very dry years, we are very concentrated on keeping the water use as low as possible. Next to the cabin is a dry composting toilet and showers are limited to 5 minutes a day per person. We take it as a part of our sustainable living.

    FOOD:
    Three meals a day are served and volunteers participate in food preparation. I usually cook lunch alone, but expect volunteers to prepare an easy dinner: salad, soup, quiche or anything you like to cook. Same is for breakfast.
    We cook healthy organic vegetarian food with lots of fresh vegetable, once a week meat is served from our own livestock.
    Our household is sugar-free, only exceptions are occasional home-baked cakes or homemade jams. If you have a sweet-tooth, we highly recommend you to bring your own sweets or junk food.

    DAILY ROUTINE:
    A certain rythm in our life is important to us and so our days look usually like this:
    7 am Milking goats
    7:45 Breakfast
    8:30 Work
    12:30 Lunch
    13:30 Afternoon work 1hour and free time
    18:30 Dinner

    CLIMATE:
    Mountains are close by, and nearly all year long there is strong and cold wind blowing. You definitely need a water and wind stopper, a hat and scarf is necessary until end of May and from September.

    March-April: Day temperatures : 0-15°C, Night temperatures : -5-10 °C
    May- June : Day temperatures : 10-25°C, Night temperatures : 2-10 °C
    July- August: Day temperatures : 15-32°C, Night temperatures : 10-18 °C
    September- October: Day temperatures : 0-20°C, Night temperatures : -5-10 °C

    Algo más...

    We live in the countryside but you can easily travel by bus and train. Next to our house is a forest where you wander or go mushroom picking. There are forest cycling pathes called Singletrack nearby, we can lend you our bicycles. An excellent brewery is in Frydlant town and you can enjoy some beautiful hikes in the Jizera mountains or see a wonderful cathedral in Hejnice.
