UPDATE: Happy New Year We are Closed for winter... Welcome from May 2020.

Enjoy nature on a Crystalline Clearing in Poland and help with:
- harvesting and preparing of my permaculture garden & eco-habitat for winter.
- creating improvement solutions around household /garden,
- harvesting wild food in the forest (berries; herbs, mushrooms, etc)
- cooking vegan/vegetarian and making preserves,
- or if you have designer skills help me designing interior space in the future house.

MIN stay 1-WEEK or LONGER stay very welcome :-D

This year my place is open to helpers till end-Sep / end-October depending on the weather.
Accommodation is in an individual comfortable tent. Or, If you have your own tent or van there is plenty of place to camp.

The wood & hempcrete dome-house construction is undergoing, which might be of interest for those of you keen to see / help with natural building techniques.

I invite you to spend a nature-loving full of positive energy time with me in a countryside rural/forestry area, 38km from Kielce, 100 m from Cracow, 200km from Warsaw in Swietokrzyskie voivodship where I own 1.7ha land surrounded by a forest yet not far from a village Gorzakiew (300-400m).
I call it Krysztalowa Polana (Crystaline Clearing) because of its pure energy and a crystal clean water stream bordering it.

Anna: Polish but traveled the world, lived shortly in the US and for many years in Switzerland. Now back to my roots I create my permaculture based eco-habitat place on earth nearby where my ancestors come from in Poland.
Right now I spend half a year on a site in a caravan (May-October) and this is when I welcome volunteers.

I speak current English, French and Polish (of course). Communicate in Russian as well.

This year we focus on two projects:
- The permaculture garden: with an emphasis on planting, mulching and taking care of organic fruit trees, vegetable plants and herbs; setting a watering system, building a shower, a solar fruit dryer and maybe a green-house. etc.
- The hemp-crate + wood dome house construction, which is undergoing and will depend on a weather and skills - you can see progress via my FB page link above.

The conditions are good for a scout-spirited people wanting to recharge their inner batteries and experience living by the rules of nature, by the daylight and the firelight, drinking fresh source water and bathing in a stream, eating vegetarian, gardening and harvesting gifts of nature from a lawn and a forest....
well... there is, however gas for cooking and I buy some ingredients from local farmers in a village or bring it from the city where I go on average once per week. There is a phone network reach, and a phone can be charged, but no internet connection unless you have it on your phone.

I need your:
- physical help in the garden or at the eco-construction site (depending on a season)
- manual help in general maintenance if you are a skilled handyman/woman
- cooking and food harvesting and processing (vegetarian or preferably vegan)
- technical help in designing and setting a watering system (maybe building a small dam), solar power supply, stove, or other autonomous technical solutions like i.e. solar fruit dryer

Looking forward to hearing from you :-)
