We are looking for volunteers who would like to contribute to the development of a new campsite in Lithuania. It is located in a beautiful apple tree garden next to Šiauliai-Riga road (E12/E77) connecting Lithuania and Latvia.

Every august since 2008, we are hosting a music festival with many concerts, workshops, lectures, competitions, games and lots of fun! We invite volunteers to help with preparatory works, as well as contribute to the festival content / program.

Daily tasks vary based on the skills and preferences of the volunteer, as well as the season. We need help in welcoming and accommodating guests from abroad (providing information, showing around, etc.). You may also engage in some creative projects like drawing / painting on the buildings or anything that may fit in the current surroundings. Help may be needed in our apple garden (whitening the tree trunks, collecting apples or simply cleaning up the old leaves in autumn). There are always some things to do around the house, like fixing or re-painting the fence, cutting grass. If you are here around the festival time, there are a plenty of organizational tasks to do.

Volunteers will be provided beds with clean bed sheets in a shared space (no private rooms). If you wish, you can also stay in the tent in our beautiful apple tree garden. Hot showers and clean toilets are guaranteed :) We do not cook for volunteers, but we share our kitchen and provide a plenty of products for cooking. We support the village community by buying local products like eggs, milk, cheese, vegetables and fruits. WiFi is available, smoking allowed only in the designated places outside.

We are passionate about cycling and have quite a few bikes that we can lend to volunteers. You may meet volunteers from Lithuania and other countries working on our site. On long summer evenings, we enjoy dinners together, chatting and tasting home made wine in a good company. If you stay here long enough, we can teach you to cook some Lithuanian meals, make domestic apple wine or hand made wooden furniture.

We do not expect volunteers to help more than half a day, so you will have a plenty of time to explore the beautiful surroundings, including the Hill of Crosses (one of the main tourist attractions in Lithuania located 19 km from us), Jakiškiai Manor and others. If you are a nature lover, you may be interested in visiting Žagare National Park. A great way to travel around is by bikes that we will be happy to lend you; there are special paths & routes or you can cycle along village roads wherever you like. The 4th largest city of Lithuania Šiauliai is only 28 km away from us. It is a perfect transport hub if you would like to continue your trip by bus or train.
