kultur.GUT.natur

We are a non profit organisation in Wr. Neustadt, half an hour (car or train) away from Vienna (in the south), which is working in environmental education and sustainable lifestyle. We have a large vegetable, herbage and fruit-garden of 2200m² in which you can learn how vegetables can grow all year round here in Austria. We like to share our knowledge and our harvest with our volunteers.

We are some people who are working for Kultur.GUT.natur. Some of us work in the garden, others like to make the Workshops with the children and adults. We like to get in contact with people from other countries, we are interestet in different cultures and we treat everybody with respect. and we enjoy to share our knowledge with you. Your work is in the garden, but also cleaning in the house and helping us when we have our seminars. A lot of the work will be on your own, so you must be happy to work without supervision. There is a simple accomodation in the Seminar Center. With a kitchen and bath room which is also used by other people working in the KGN. But nobody is living at the Center. However there are regular events at the center in the evening. Sometimes we will cook and eat together. Most of the time you will have to prepare your own food. You will get money to buy the food that you need . There is WI-FI, but no TV If you have a sleeping bag please bring it with you. Depending on our schedule you can work either half days and have 2 days off, or you work full-days and get a longer weekend off to go and visit e.g. Prague or Budapest . Best Arrival Dates are usually Sundays late afternoon. But we are flexible. We will pick you up at the main trainstation in Wiener Neustadt. Our Center is situated in a beautiful large park . We prefer a minimum stay of 2 weeks .

My experience in KGN was awesome. Irene and Karoline are both wonderful and caring people and members I met of the KGN team are all great people. Tho I arrived in winter when there was not much work in the garden, it did not stop them from showing me things about nature & eco-friendliness. I have a lot of respect for the work and direction of KGN. The work itself was easy to pick up. It required some independency which made the work & my stay fun and my schedule flexible. The town is a nice and quiet place to spend some time in with views that you can't complain a thing. Thanks for having me!

Para mí la experiencia no ha sido gratificante.

Es una casa solitaria.Estás a las afueras del pueblo, y no compensa tampoco por Viena (es mucho más caro ir y volver (25€ tren) que dormir en un hostel en Viena(11€)). Es cierto que al estar ya en noviembre, no habia mucho que hacer en el jardín. Pero prácticamente lo único que hice fue fregar platos.

Me sentí muy solo. Los miembros del equipo viven en sus casas, tú estás sólo.

Y para colmo la "habitación privada" es en realidad, un colchón en el suelo.

En fin.Lo siento pero sólo lo recomiendo si no tenéis trabajo ni sitio donde ir.
