Hi, I am Urša. Living in a place by the forest in a small family - friends community of 2-5 people. We live a simple life and try to bring an old farmhouse back to life. We practice permaculture and natural building methods. We like delicious homecooked meals with the vegetable from our garden, walks in the nature, making arts, natural cosmetics and always innovating new stuff in the area of eco building and gardening .
With September the focus will be on digging the earth to install new water system. As well as preserving a lot of our veggies for winter time. Maybe also putting natural plaster on a tiny house.
Otherwise currently we are in a quite colorful phase of living, meaning the focus is on very different activities - from gardening, shamanic work to cleaning and renovating old house, removing trash and dirty spaces from around the property. There used to be a pottery place here, so we are also arranging pots and workshop place.

There are always friends from around joining us for some events and gatherings and we also host some events for other people to get to know our practices. So sometimes it can be very dynamic. At the same time we all like to have a lot of individual space, so when volunteers staying with us it is our wish/requirement that they are also able to spend some of their time by themselves and organize their time on their own. We can give suggestions for trips in nature, give you good literature, share nice practices, but we are not around all of the time.
There is one big old house + two small houses (natural built cobhouse + tinyhouse). Volunteers are staying in the big room in the old house unless agreeded otherwise. The option is also to sleep on a ban or put a tent on a meadow.
There are 2 barns at the property, big meadow, 2 big fields, awesome forest garden :) and a lot of forest. Close to the old house there is a local village road, so one can sometimes hear some noises. The house is in a small village close to town of Celje. 10 minutes cardrive to highway and well connected with Ljubljana.

There is a local village road near the house, so one can hear some noises of the cars around the house (just to let you know what to expect), but the meadow and forest are away from it so there one can experience 100% nature vibe.
We are easy-going people and would love someone with good energy that is highly motivated to help us. It is also important that the person is able to organize his free time and spend it on his own. We can offer some options (like cycling, doing stuff in the nature), but you would be left to spend some time on your own as well. We would appreciate a person who did similar work in the past and has some experiences with physical work. But what is even more important is that you have the will to work and learn something new.
