    Descrição

    In order to avoid either your or our disappointment, we kindly ask you not to contact us if you are not interested in gardening {unless you are an experienced carpenter) and do not keep the living and working space clean and tidy.

    Hi! We are Nenad and Marija, a middle-aged and open-minded, nature-loving couple.
    After we both spent years working abroad, we have decided to start a self-sustainable place here in the countryside where we can practice permaculture gardening, and eat fresh healthy food (our diet is mostly whole food plant-based and we avoid processed food). , and enjoy the simple life in a rural landscape. Our property is located in a small village, near Zagreb. One small dog and a spoiled cat live with us.

    Since we bought this property, we have been quite busy completing the renovation of an existing home, building a new wood house, feeding the soil, making the raised beds... and have planted 3000 Aronia berry bushes!

    There is still a lot to be done ... ongoing weeding, landscaping, organizing/making use of materials we already have for projects in the near and distant future i.e. building fences and vegetable trellises, making fruits/vegetable drying racks, finishing work in the house and around. We really love the idea of having more sustainable projects going as talent, experience, and time permits i.e. rocket stove :), outdoor shower, compost to

    While there is always work, we really enjoy our "off-time" as well. There are so many beautiful trails in the forests nearby to explore by bike or foot (sometimes even come back with a basket of mushrooms:) You can enjoy long walks in the quiet, peaceful and untouched surroundings. Local people are very kind and friendly but not many speak english;)

    In our and many other guests' opinions, the sunrises and sunsets are the most amazing... what colors!...and a night sky full of stars..... you'll just have to see for yourself.

    Oportunidades de intercâmbio cultural e aprendizado

    This is an untouched rural part of Croatia with no tourists. You can escape from the busy city lives; walk in the forests, relax or cycle on empty roads end enjoy the scenery.
    This would fit you if you don't mind being independent, working, and living alone/ or with fellow workawayers. Taking self-initiative would be greatly appreciated.
    It would be great if you have experience in permaculture gardening as we are trying to make the most of it and we are more than willing to share our knowledge with you.

  • Ajuda

    Ajuda

    We are looking for people who have a strong work ethic, take the initiative and clean up after themselves.

    We need help with the everyday activities on the farm which vary according to the time of year. Typical tasks include tending the garden, weeding, watering, and harvesting. Other seasonal activities include preparation of the garden beds, application of compost and manure, watering, fruit picking, preservation of produce, and cutting and stacking firewood.

    We expect volunteers to contribute 5 hours per day, 5 days a week. During the summer, the cool hours of the morning or evening are more pleasant to work in. During the hot hours of the day, we usually rest or work indoors. We try to suit the job to the person, according to his/her age, strength, and stamina. There is usually a variety of jobs to be done every day so that boredom is never an issue.

    Early risers and animal lovers are appreciated!
    Since we don't live all the time on the property, either individual who doesn't mind alone time or those that travel with a friend/significant other is the best fit.

  • Acomodação

    Acomodação

    We offer you a bedroom with two single beds in a renovated old wooden house (new windows, doors, bathroom; kitchen and living area are in use but not completely finished as we have to lay new ceramic tiles to be completed).
    If you travel solo, there is a possibility that you might share the bedroom with another volunteer.

    Also, if you prefer to stay in your tent or camper van, you are most welcome to do so.

    When you arrive your bedroom/ sleeping area will be clean and tidy and prepared for you. Bed linen and towels will be provided. Toiletries (shampoo, bathing gel, conditioner, toothpaste) are to be provided by you.

    When using the water (taking a shower, washing the dishes...), please keep in mind that water is limited to some extent, as we use water from the draw-well.
    We try to keep electrical bills as low as possible and we kindly ask to have the lights turned off in rooms where no one is staying. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

    There is no internet on the property but we go to Caffe bar which is 5 minutes away by bicycle when we need it.

    We are located just outside the small town called Dubrava, which has a local bus station from where you can take the bus to the city of Vrbovec, which is the closest mainline train station.
    Zagreb, the capital of Croatia, is a 30 minutes train ride away. The ticket costs under 4 euros and departs approximately every hour..... Plus, if you like to roam, there are various other places to go and explore for the day or overnight trip, on your days off.
