About the workproject

We need 2 volunteers

I'm a retired person, just bought an old farm, that was neglected for about 10 years. Situated on the beautiful hills, seraunding lake Balaton, in Hungary.
My goal is to build a kind of old time organic farm, that will supply
all our needs, eggs, vegetable, froots, milk etc.
The help I need is in all kinds of work, gardening, constuction, cooking etc.

That's me. A cup of coffee and open space.
I'm 72 retired civil engineer, following my dream to live on a farm. Just bought this old farm and slowly plan to bring it to life. Quality of life is my most concern, it will be organic and hopefully supply all my needs.
I feel like a pioneer communicating with the lend, and love the old time way of life and tempo. Horse and buggy are fine.
