We are an English couple in our 30s who have recently bought an old farmhouse in Slovenia with 5 acres of forest and meadow. When we're not here we live in Bristol in the UK. We like good locally sourced food & drink, we like cooking and we like meeting new people. We also have a baby girl called Etta.

We are renovating the farmhouse and surrounding land, building off-grid yurt accommodation, and helping the forest to become healthy again after decades of neglect.

We have lots to do. Much of it is manual labour such as clearing parts of the forest, cutting down dead branches & cutting logs. Also helping to construct the yurt, off-grid toilet, shower & kitchen. We have lots of old wooden bits and pieces from the house if anyone has carpentry skills or a flair for 'upcycling' such as turning an old door into a table etc.

We are a charity project in a beautiful, but socially underprivileged part of Istria. Our primary objective is to help the local community in our region. We support them in any way we can, especially their sustainable activities such are ecofarming, sustainable tourism and preservation of local natural and cultural heritage. There is a huge potential for sustainable development in the region, but new knowledge and young energy is needed to move forward. This is exactly what we would like to bring here.

In the last three years we have hosted hundreds of volunteers from 42 countries and created an inspiring space of cooperation, creativity and harmony among volunteers and the locals. There is a great variety of things to do, so if you want to bring out the hero in you and experience living in luxurious simplicity, come and join us!

We are taking a few months off. Please write to us starting with January 2018 for volunteering in spring 2018.

Ayesha and I were teachers but have decided to retire and make a go of developing our place in Slovenia full time.
Our ultimate aim is to create a 'No Dig' organic farm and nursery with accommodation and a small campsite in an environmentally friendly a manner as possible.
We have a one hectare site with various buildings of varying ages, a field and a small orchard. We would like to complete one phase 3 building for living accomodation and develop the other 2 buildings into apartments, a classroom and shower block. We are a long way from achieving this. We also like to grow as much of our own food as we can and this year establish some no dig growing plots.
The work we need help with can be quite physical, for example cutting down and digging out trees or just weeding, there's something for all levels of fitness, but you must be willing to get your hands dirty and be able to work on your own initiative.
In return, we can offer comfortable accommodation, good food (Ayesha is a v... more inside

We offer the possibility to work on our small romantic ranch for free board and lodging to an open-minded, uncomplicated person with good social skills, who likes the contact to horses, animals and people. We are a creative swiss-slovenian family with sense of humor.

Our ranch is located on a idyllic reposeful place at the end of "Gorenska", about 15 km out of Ljubljana. Our small village is affected by agriculture and its marvelous setting is inviting to relaxation and just being.

/We have everything full up to the 10th of September and thus able to accept only autumnal travelers, sorry/

If the photos did the job (waking your interest, that is), you must be a nature-and-mountain-and-beautiful-scenery-lover, so a big part of who we are happy to live and work with for a while is already done. If you are not discouraged by mostly a lot of (could be) quite repetitive work, then you will not suffer either:)

So, to the work first: most of the time it will be something about herbs (Matej's passion) or berries (that one is mine). Matej is developing a job/business/vocation in the world of herbs and during late spring/summer/early autumn there is always some picking/weeding/drying/processing of wild/cultivated plants to do. The berries are mostly installed now and there will be regular tasks to do (weeding, cutting grass, picking, ...) During bad weather or in colder part of the year there are more domestic and indoor tasks to do: renovating the helpers room, pa... more inside

We’re a Group of IT experts who decided to buy and renovate a 19th century castle. We would like to work with young, open minded and pro environment people who have lots of creative ideas how to restore this wonderful building, how to make it a nice place to live at.

We have managed to set up a proper solar power plant, solved the water issues and renovate a small appartment where guests / caretaker can now live.

Our castle is located deep in Kocevje forrest, from where it takes aprox. 10 minutes jeep drive to reach our first neighbour. This is brown bear and grey wolf country so expect to meet this wonderful animals on daily basis and prepair yourself for wilderness and nature!

In long term we try to grow a community that is self sufficient and productive.

Eva (33), Dejan (25)

Our small farm with domestic animals is placed in a peacefull location near the hills rich with forrests and wildlife.
It is located close to a beautiful small town of Velenje, rich with cultural and natural heritage, lakes, and a lot of great things to see.

Need help on the farm (specially desired people who love working with horses) where we are trying to establish an animal therapy center for children with special needs.

we have a lot of possibilities for accommodation (we have a few rooms in the house with beds for guests, during the summer we can also arrange haybeds in the barn if workers desire ), depending on the workers wishes but nothing luxurious. we try to cook as much traditional local food as possible, we can also cook vegetarian food. Workers eat food with us or can cook for themselfs if desired, at least 3 meals per day guarantied.

Petra, Janez and Svit (6 years old), Brin Jan (2,5 years old) are our names. We are a young family which is creating a nice, pleasant place, where we could live and create together a sustainable place with you. You are welcome to join us.

7 years ago we bought a small old farm in a village which is quite isolated (market, post, bus etc. are 10km away). We renovated an old house for our family to live in it for as long as we don't build a new house with natural materials.
But first we are building a community house, where us and volunteers can live a sustainable way of life.
On the property there are still other buildings in a bad shape, so every year we try to make some things better - depends on how many hands we have to help, what material we have and what idea pops out. Janez is educated in natural building and has a lot of experience on it. I, Petra, I work more on a group dynamic and work with people (participants of workshops, volunteers, EVS volunteers, youth exchange... more inside

We are a family of 4 (Urska, Uros, Nejsa 7,5 years and Teja 3 years) living on a hill 20 km south of the capital Ljubljana in a beautiful nature. Our small house is located in a small village, next to the forest and we have a big organic garden (not a real farm, we have just 4.000 meters of land). We bought the house and the land few years ago and slowly we want to turn it into a small permaculture paradise. Plan is to renovate the house in a natural way, to expand the garden, plant new trees and herbs, to give our home an artistical touch...
We are looking for open minded, relaxed people that love nature and are prepared to help us with working in our organic garden, house renovation, planting trees, picking up herbs, preparing wood and food for winter... sometimes just help with our daily work... we welcome people who like team working and can also work independently, people who are prepared to exchange knowledge and experience so we can all learn something and at the same time h... more inside

Young couple (36 & 32) with a little baby boy living on a quiet piece of land in the slovenian country side, aiming for self sufficiency and a peaceful life with and within nature.

Since about 3 years we are living here on our lovely farm. We are working on changing it into something more sustainable & ecological than it used to be using Permaculture principles. It's a life time project which gets more and more exciting from day to day.

Everyday we do something different here, specially spontanious DIY side projects are quite common to happen in between. Our main focus this year will be our new enlarged veggie garden. We will be starting with our provisional plant nursery in our living room towards the end of February. Also we are planning on building an outdoor rocket stove kitchen and mass heater, rebuilding our future guesthouse, renovating old furniture, and many other activities around the farm for which creative hands and hearts are always more than welcome :)
