    It would be good if have some practical knowledge in restoration of wood. Manor house have 64 original windows. We need to restore them. Good if You know how to do it but we can also teach. Park is old and have not been groomed for long time. We want to make old time walking paths with old methods and materials, plant some trees, bushes and flowers. In manor house is taking place concerts and cultural events and there is need for some help to show where to go or make a small excursion. Most important is open mind and creative thinking. We have 2 hectares big park in which we need to make paths like in 19th century.
