Because of covid-19 I am only accepting helpers who want to stay for at least a month and who particularly want to come here. We have a farm that has been converted mostly into trees ages 10 - 20 years old that need maintenance. This involves pruning the trees and planting new ones and weeding round the trees. We also try to develop the flora in the woods by planting wild flowers and useful forest edible plants. We also grow vegetables and they need to be weeded.
My daughter is establishing a forest garden but we are still in the learning process and my son is home (because of Covid) and learning mandarin but is also interested in learning Korean and Japanese.
I tend to prepare food from scratch and like the idea of a simple sustainable life (with wifi). Vegetarians are encouraged but we do eat some meat if it is local (ie not from a supermarket). Dietary vegans who cook are also welcome as we like vegan food. Expect helpers to share with food preparation and cleaning in kitchen.
I am mainly interested in traveling, Forestry, cooking and and mushrooms. I am happy to help with English language learning. My daughter speaks Spanish and Russian and is keen to practice!
You need to be interested in nature to come here. My son who lives in Vienna is organising an arts and nature festival for next year and we are looking for interested artists. My daughter lives just down the road but she also helps on the farm and grows vegetables.
I prefer helpers who have initiative to see what needs to be done and who are flexible and can organise themselves.

Forestry, gardening, English, cooking, using wild foods, mushrooms. We have some nmusical instruments. We are always learning from volunteers and love the exchange of ideas especially different ways of using foods that emerges from the experience of having people to stay from different countries.
Help in the trees and early summer to divide daffodil bulbs. In June planting container grown trees. Pruning and clearing brashed branches of spruce trees. Help gardening in spring. We have just built a new path so need to make it nice by planting flowers and trees along it.
