We are a family (2 adults and 3 children) living in a tiny village called Kács at the Northeast of Hungary, the southern foot of Bükk Mountain. We are working to evolve a mostly self-sustaining lifestyle that satisfies the demands of the family first of all, in an economically way, consciously using the sources of energy.
We are in the beginning part of our plan, learning much of life itself and accumulating experiences. Organized by our NGO, we also have programmes in the themes of sustainable lifestyle, supporting its becoming general in a wider circle.

The volunteers coming to us are participating in the daily activity around the small farm: they work in the kitchen-garden and orchard, harvesting, preserving fruits and vegetables, dealing with our animals (at present goats, sheeps and poultry), improving and maintaining the buildings and the plot around. They also can solve tasks connected to the organized programmes.

We need one person's help as well in housework, for example cooking, cleaning, doing the dishes and sometimes taking care of our children. We expect from volunteers 6 hours work/day and ask to stay here minimum about 2 weeks or more.

The volunteers receive accommodation in a separate stone house and free board for their work. We eat little meat and consume mostly our own products (fruits and vegetables, home-made bread, goat milk, cheese, cottage cheese and meat of our animals). Vegetarian meals can also be prepared on request.

The cooperation and the balance of giving and getting are of great importance in this programme; we do our best on our part and we expect the same from the volunteers. The cooperation and communication with each other is very important for us.
We are able to communicate in simple English, German languages and Hungarian as native.
