Overview

Location: Merboltice,  Czech Republic

Period : 1 September to 30 November 2019.

Deadlines: 25 July 2019

Profile : A volunteer aged 18 to 30 years old. 

The ecological farm in the Czech Republic is looking for a volunteer who will be part of the local team for three months.

The project focuses on the real life experiences of the farm lifestyle and the building of the local community. It’s important to really live, not just work on the spot. Participants should be prepared to take care of the animals on a daily basis (goats, hens, ducks and two cows), but this is certainly not the main or the longest part of the tasks.

The spots are numerous and some of them are:

  • plant a few dozen new fruit trees in the pastures,
  • harvesting nuts, plums, pears and apples;
  • preparation of apple juice and jams, firewood for the winter;
  • training a horse to shoot;
  • repair of pasture fences;
  • manufacture of dairy products;
  • organization of school excursions;
  • promotion of public cultural events – short film festival (September 7 to 8) and theater evening (November 9) at the farm;
  • work in a garden etc.

The profile of the ideal candidate:

  • be motivated and interested in the subject of the project.
  • Travel expenses are reimbursed on the basis of a kilometer package.
  • The cost of food, accommodation, transport and language courses are covered by the program.

You can apply by sending us your CV and a cover letter (all in English) before July 25, 2019.
