  • Description


    Hi I'm Hugi, nice to e-meet you. 😊
    I am very fortunate to have inherited fields of crops, vineyard and orchards from my grandparents where I try to keep the family tradition of wine and pálinka making alive beside my job as a Carer in the UK..
    I like to do experiments when I make natural wine and pálinka and like to learn and experiment various organic/permaculture/regenerative practices in growing various crops, vegetables, fruits and at the same time, slowly but surely making my eco dream projects into practice by creating a quirky holiday home/an eco village at the vineyard. 🙂
    If you are interested in permaculture, sustainable living, natural building projects, carpentry, DIY, woodworking, upcycling, art & crafts - your are more than welcome to join my daily adventures - any help would be much appreciated! 🙂
    There are several projects to choose from on our farm and you could join me helping around in the neighbouring farms, too.

    One of the main projects I need help with is clearing out the houses, renovating, decorating, etc.
    My dad had built a nice A-frame brick house with a wine cellar on one of the fields that was not in use for years..
    It has a living room, kitchen and 2 bedrooms upstairs. It has no bathroom yet - it is another project to complete. We use an outdoor shower.

    On the next field there is a tiny 1 bed house with another cellar that is used as a hang out/dining place in the hot summer.. A terrace, a toilet and a kitchen are to be renovated on this house, too.🙂

    And the list goes on and on..
    There are many other projects if you like DIY. My late dad has been collecting leftover building materials that he had planned to reuse, upcycle, create art from.. - it would be amazing if we could accomplish some of his ideas.. 🙏🤍
    There are plenty of materials to use your creativity and imagination and create sg useful or just simply beautiful with a twist of art.. 🙂

    Previously I have been involved in organising music events, festivals, songwriting camps and planning to create a place/community for the same on the vineyard.
    The ideas are endless as regards to what we could create on the fields, apart from gardening, just a few more to mention: building a book exchange/library in the woods, a playground not just for kids 😎, a pool, a stopover for cyclists (warm shower) , an outdoor kitchen and an outdoor bath... Mainly using a mix of the leftover building materials and natural building techniques and natural, local, recycled materials like bamboo cane, stones, wine bottles etc..
    I just need partners in crime with a creative mind (and preferably muscles to be able to move things around) who doesn't mind to get their hands dirty.. 😎
    Hoping to connect with easy-going, open-minded, can-do and will-do attitude people, who are not afraid of thinking outside the box. 💫
    It would be great to share our life experiences, knowledge and skills while we do sg useful & meaningful in a quiet, rural, green & chilled atmosphere. 🙌

    Garden projects 🐛
    🌱Spring - the gardening jobs starts, preparing the soil, planting, sowing seeds, pruning trees and vine,etc..

    🌻Summer - includes grass cutting using trimmer and syche, picking and conserving fruits&veg in various ways.

    🍇September/October - the grape harvesting time. This is when I need help the most with picking grapes, apples, pears, quince, walnuts and with making wine and pálinka.

    ❄️After harvest the preparation of the garden starts for next year's fruition including replanting vine, fertilising with animal manouvering, maintenance of vine structures, etc..

    🃏All year around we can work on one of the fields that is a jungle atm: full of wild vine and elderflower.. Cutting overgrown bushes, creating path, making raised beds, etc.
    There are plenty of wild vine, hazelnut, elderflower, bamboo, walnut that can be used to create various things from ea. :furniture, decoration, arts&crafts..

    In the winter there aren't many jobs and I'm not always around, however I'm looking for people who would be happy to housesit on a remote countryside.
    It would suit someone who likes an alternative lifestyle, loves nature and the out doors and is happy to spend time on their own.

    DIY/Building/Upcycling 👩‍🔧
    There are different DIY projects all year around that would require some experience/interest in creative DIY, construction, gardening, arts&crafts.
    I prefer unusual, quirky, unique, natural building style rather than straight lines and even surfaces.. 🤯
    All to create from recycling materials as much as possible, in a natural, unique, creative way.♻️
