Volunteer & Employment Opportunities

Join us in this castle adventure!

Uhuburg is looking for a couple new hires for various tasks and skills such as gardening, hospitality, housekeeping, maintenance, agriculture, and more.

Meet the Team

Bob Marthai   Owner, architect and builder who dreamed of building a castle in the mountains of North Georgia to share what he has found to be important for the good life. He loves sharing Uhuburg with guests, saying, "Why have a castle if you can't share it?" Bob is an ex-psychologist, retired tall ship captain, naval architect, and lover of dance. Join his Day Visit guided tour for the full story!
Naomi Marthai   Admin Assistant to Bob and wearer of many hats, Naomi manages many of the day to day castle affairs, web/social media, oversees gardening and has a hand in mural artistry as well. Naomi was previously an 8th grade science teacher for 11 years. She loves to dance, especially with Bob & Janine, whom she calls Dad & Mom when off the clock!
