Enjoy a real experience in a permaculture farm
Description: After a successful workcamp in June, we decided to come back and help in Hvozd again! “Hvozd” (aka deep forest) is a unique community of musicians, herbalists, jogis and craftsmen, who met in a beautiful village with many cultural and architectural highlights. Nowadays you can find them in their gardens, meadows, forest - simply surrounded by nature. All of their activities are based on principles of permaculture, about which they further educate the broad society. They look forward to more volunteers, eager to learn more about preserving nature and taking care of what we have.
Type of Work: The work will be focused on making the permacultural park more beautiful. That mainly includes manual work such as building paths, constructing benches, planting flowers, bushes and vegetable. The work is done outside in beautiful and peaceful nature. You will experience some farm work in real life and see the work progress in front of your eyes.
Study Theme: You will learn about environment, its protection and permaculture. You will learn about diversity and its way to promote it even in your own garden.
Accommodation: Volunteers will be accommodated in a house and sleep in beds. The adventurous ones are also encouraged to try and sleep outside (or just try it out for one night) on mats. There is a bathroom &toilet in the same building & dry toilet outside. Volunteers will have access to kitchen and help with meal preparation. The diet is strictly vegetarian, vegan food is also possible.
Language: : The language spoken in the Czech Republic is Czech, but we do not expect you to know it! English will be the language of the workcamp, and we will teach you basic words in Czech at the beginning, since most local people do not speak English. But do not worry, they are very friendly and easy-going!
Approximate Location: The camp is located in a beautiful town in the north of the Czech Republic. It is perfect for trips in calm woods, exploring cultural heritage or enjoying sport activities.
