Permaculture Gardening & Household Help in Sunny Bulgaria

1 review1

The Exchange

The garden work is seasonal and may involve planting, mowing, weeding, watering, pruning, harvesting and more. You don't need experience for this, since I can train you, but you need to be willing to do physical work. Handyman skills would be useful for small repairs, home improvements and new projects. You'll also do cleaning and tidying. It helps if you can cook, so you can prepare our meals and preserve fruit for the winter.

Activities & Shift

Tasks will depend on the season (especially in the orchard and garden), on what needs doing at the time, and on the volunteer's skills and interest. We'll communicate beforehand what will be required. You can plan your own schedule.


Treat everyone (humans, animals and plants) with kindness. Communicate with honesty. No drugs, please, and no smoking in the house. Keep a quiet lifestyle. Work hours are flexible. Food is provided (mostly vegetarian, vegan if you prefer, and you'll do most of the cooking.) If there's anything you need or don't want to do, or if you have any concerns, let's talk about it before you come.
