We are a low-budget small developing farm with a goal to become permaculture, ancient-traditional, zero-waste and organic. Every day we make a small step closer to these ideals. At the moment we use many different simple tools, some electric tools, petrol brushcutter, petrol car with a trailer. We have some sheep, chicken and a horse, 0,2 ha vegetable garden and several hectares of fruit trees. If you want to help, we will be happy to welcome you!

In autumn 2019 we plan:
- to collect old grass mulch and transport it to vegetable garden,
- clean some area from brush,
- make some more firewood from brush and branches,
- replant trees,
- make posts for electric fence,
- repair stone buildings with lime mortar,
- protect young apple trees with wool cover,
- make hugelbeet and weave fences from willow, bird cherry and hazelnut branches,
- make roof shingles with the froe (shindelmesser),
- apply linen oil to different wooden surfaces.

Please, apply if you are interested to try out these works and visit us!

If you feel skilled in some other way and want to implement this skill to make the world better, please contact us as well, and explain, what would you like to do in our farm.
