About the workproject

We need 1 volunteer

We are a hungarian couple, part time farmers at this moment. Lia has been working for companies mainly as an environmental consultant. She has master degrees in environmental science and plant genetics, fine skills for personal development consulting, auditing, cooking and also plays very well on piano. Sándor has similar experience with degrees of environmental science, agriculture, animal husbandry and also has an education in permaculture, practical sustainability. He is working on his agroecology PhD and plays the drums in various bands.

We have 3 cheeky dogs and some other animals around us. We have visited some farms in the past so we would like to make all volunteers visit a good learning experience.

Currently we have two locations. Our home and house on a remote part of a small village where we live together with ~20 goats, some sheep, pigs, poultry, two donkeys and a pony. It is more or less an urban permaculture site with so many ideas to start testing. Our farm is 30 km away from our home, 40 minutes with regular bus line and a half with car. It is a mosaic ecosystem which was used formerly as orchard and vineyard. All our land is certified organic. Nowadays we have small crop fields, grasslands, fruit tree and forest patches. There are two existing building in really need to renovate asap. These were building more than hundred years ago and we would like to use them as accommodation and living space for us and our helpers. We are totally off the grid. We want to collect rainwater and use 12V system with solar panels. We have a very detailed permaculture plan for the property, so you can learn a lot about designing with us.
