The Experience

We need Cats with gardening and permaculture knowledge and experience to create a green masterpiece! Our garden has the potential for a larger-scale permaculture system to be in place, as well as a greenhouse. The farm has a lot of natural growth that needs to be tamed and shaped. We also need your help to keep the Cats cool by working alongside a builder to create a grape vine pergola (see photo for our inspiration).

I lived an amazing experience even tho the space was restrain because of the number of people so I had to adapt but I didn't mind, the place is so amazing and the people too that it was a pleasure to be there, expressing myself and feeling safe.

I had a great time at Catfarm. When I was there, a youth exchange program was taking place so it was a specific experience compared to a "normal" staying there. I was volunteering and my tasks were to help organising the event, but I could also participate to the workshops when if I had free time.
Not only was it super fun to meet people from all over Europe, but we learned a lot of things on the topic of permaculture. The staff was super nice, they made me want to try another community in the future. Thanks a lot Catfarm!

This is the best place to be. I would definetely recommend it to every other traveller, who wants to explore an alternative lifestyle. The people there are like family and the atmosphere is great aswell. I stayed there even longer than expected, because it was so much fun.

Being my first worldpackers experience, the Catfarm was way more than I expected. I made friends for life, put my skills to practice, learnt new skills and overall lived amazing experiences that I’ll never forget. I’m and will always be a cat. I’ll for sure come back and I couldn’t recommend the Catfarm more. It is truly an experience to be lived.
