We are running a small democratic school (free school) in the countryside, looking for volunteers to maintain our vegetable gardens, look after our chickens, duck, dogs, and bees, and have fun with the kids. Anyone interested in organic farming, self-sufficiency, reducing your carbon footprint, and education would be welcome here. We love it when volunteers bring their own talents and interests and can share them.

We run the school out of our house and we are located on mountainside with access to beautiful hiking trails nearby, and an orchard and vegetable fields which we are developing into a forest garden. On a typical day helpers will split their time between the daily chores, farm and garden maintenance, and helping out with with the housework and communal meals. We believe in putting in hard work to achieve our goals, but also to take time to fully enjoy country life and our community.

We ask our volunteers for a minimum stay of two weeks, but we take preference for longer stays.

The work schedule is from Monday to Friday, from 8am to 4pm, with weekends off, and we provide all meals. We are located in proximity to Osaka, Kyoto and Kobe.

You can get a closer look at our place via my instagram (anna.lodico) or our school’s instagram (sasayamamamenoki).
