Your work will mainly consist of manual work of all kinds. These include weeding, planting, hoeing, harvesting, watering, storing, watering etc. In addition to vegetables, there are grown medical herbs, which you can also help to collect and process. You might also do gardening work and help out with the maintenance of the farm and its premises. You will mostly work outside in the fresh air on the fields which are located within walking distance (500m) from the farm or directly in the farm area. Bring suitable work clothes and shoes, a hat, and a raincoat to protect yourself from the sun and rain. Study part: You will learn about the Camphill movement, Rudolf Steiner’s anthroposophy theory, living in a community, and biodynamic agriculture. Together you will talk about Czech, European and each other’s cultures and various related topics. There is also the possibility to organise workshops focused on eurythmy and intuitive pedagogy. The volunteers are encouraged to organise an international evening for community members on their own initiative and present their national cuisine and culture. Bring your favourite recipes and some specific ingredients if needed.

Accommodatie en maaltijden

Accommodation is provided directly at the farm. You will sleep in the attic on mattresses. Bring your own sleeping bag! There are two showers with hot water, two toilets, a common room, and a kitchen available. You will prepare breakfasts and dinners together as a group. Lunch will be prepared by the members of the community, you will eat all together. Ingredients, including local organic vegetables, will be provided by the local project partner.

Locatie en vrije tijd

Location: Ceske Kopisty – a small village near the historical town of Litomerice. The farm uses 11 hectares of fields; there is a garden and a yard with a couple of animals (a cow, a horse, chickens, ducks, and pigs). The area is quite vast – there are 3 residential houses, a candle workshop, and a common hall. There are 8 adults, 4 children and 7 people with special needs living there. You might meet around 10 other external co-workers. Leisure time: Barbecue with the members of the community, playing football, visiting a local pub, swimming in the river, visiting the nearby Terezin Memorial at the location of the former concentration camp for Jews and the Terezin Ghetto Museum. You can also go on trips to the nature protected area of Ceske Stredohori and/or visit the historical cities of Litomerice, Usti nad Labem and their historical sites.


This workcamp is organised in cooperation with the NGO Free Farm in Ceske Kopisty, which is part of the Camphill Community movement. It is a family-like community that welcomes people with and without disabilities and creates a pleasant environment for everyone to live and work together. Vegetables, herbs, and fruits are grown and processed organically. Free Farm aims to raise awareness of biodynamic farming and the role of a farmer nowadays. The goal of the workcamp is to connect people from different countries and experience the operation of a Czech organic farm, develop a tolerant open society and acquire a responsible approach to the world. At this workcamp, you will actively contribute to the achievement of UN SDG10 Reduced Inequalities.


This workcamp is suitable for volunteers with visual impairments/blindness, hear impairments/deafness, mild mental health issues, and lighter types of disadvantages Due to the limited outgoing resources of INEX-SDA, we kindly ask participants to contribute 10 EUR towards the costs of the general incoming administration of our workcamps. The fee will be collected upon arrival. Please note that this fee does not directly contribute to the workcamp budgets.


As you will stay in the place where people with various disabilities live, there are certain rules you are asked to respect: smoking and consumption of alcohol within the community area are restricted, and it is necessary to respect the privacy and night rest of the residents. Be aware that not all members of the community can speak English. Please, bring a sleeping bag, enthusiasm and a good mood! The workcamp is mainly suitable for people who are interested in farming and community life. Have a look at the photos from the previous year: You can learn more about the Free Farm on:
