To take part of the farm, to be passionate about permaculture, and what is more important to love nature and its laws. We want, along with the volunteers to manage the garden by permacultural laws, and by this we mean making the plan, planting seeds, creating raised beds(hugelkultur and mandala), mulching the soil, planting fruit trees, fruit shrubs, ornamental shrubs, flowers, to scheme the foodforest, making compost, fencing the land with resulted weeds, and by planting species that are best for this kind of fence. The volunteers will take part of whatever the activities we have in plan, and it is best for they to know what to do in different situations at a farm! By this I mean from ground to top :) ......making food, discussing whatever they have in mind about a permacultural farm, designing the gardens with flowers, stones, upon raised beds, planting, replanting, mulching, cleaning, building a bread oven, designing and building a ground basement etc; If in summer - there will be harvesting fruits/vegetabels/medicinal plants (along with collecting the seeds from them and preserving them) /mushroom; cleaning the garden, making raised beds, maintaining them and the existing constructions as well, collecting seeds from wild greenery, vegetables, flowers etc, Preserving vegetables for the winter(all sorts of..) fruits, vegetables, weeds. The whole process explained. We take care of the well feeling of the volunteers, recreation is a "must have" at our farm , meaning there will be artistic/creative workshops - making soap, candles, handmade accesories especially out of leather (knife scabbards), wood , silver. There will be a fire place where we can chill and cook :) or sing -whatever people want - it is very important to colaborate with each other, and express our desires, only by this we can make things flow. And most of all- we have beautiful hills with forests, that will be seen :)
One little guest house - meaning one little room for 2 persons; in my house I can offer 1 spot where the volunteer could sleep and keep his/her personal things; A room with two beds<---in progress, Space for tents---A LOT. In the house , a bathroom with a shower(hot water)+ toilet; And outside for "tent-ers" there is an Eco toilet. Other utilities: spring water(cold/hot), electricity, internet, shower, toilets, food, joy :) , and useful work for the rest of our lives.
We sustain whatever the volunteers want to eat.
