I am Richard and I run an organic vegetable farm here in Zatec. We have a plot of land 1.3 hectare with a big farm house on site. We grow many vegetables and some fruit too, we have a cherry, apple and pear tree. My sister, Romana, and her daughter live in the house with our other workers and volunteers. If you come and volunteer here you will stay in the house with them or in the teepee that we hope to build this summer. I live in the town with my wife and son and hope to move into the farm house also when we have renovated the downstairs rooms. We like to cook our food from the garden, fresh and organic and believe in a natural and organic way of living. If you come and volunteer with us we would like you to be part of our family, you can help with cooking and learn new skills of making fresh bread and juices. We like to have a good energy on the farm where everyone can be open with ideas and opinions. When the weather is nice we make a fire and cook from the garden outside. We also have a trampoline and small pool outside. In the house there is possibility to use the washer machine and the internet.


We hope in the future to add some animals to our farm so that we can become more self sufficient. Our vision is to expand the farm and create some teacher training space for people to come and learn about healthy way of living. This might include learning about organic gardening as well as massage and yoga workshops and so on. We would like to create a community based on holistic living.

In the garden there is continuous cycle of planting, tending to and harvesting of crops. Because our farm is organic there can be lots of weeding to do to help the plants grow. We would also like volunteers to share domestic duties of living in the house and so everyone together helps to keep the home clean and tidy and a nice place to live. As we are renovating part of the house any handy work is welcome and we are always looking for new ideas for the farm. In return for your help on the farm we will teach you of an organic and sustainable way of life, welcome you into our home and provide you with fresh meals and a cosy place to stay.
