We are a Permaculture Farm Project that is in construction. Here you can learn good skills about building your own house, growing your own food, making your lake productive and many other. We started this project in 2015 and it is still going on. Since then we have been constructed an organic fish pond, swales, and terraced gardens, rehabilitating a river bed and we’ve brought an old haybarn piece by piece like a puzzle at the construction site to be later used for the main house as part of the wooden structure of the attics and roof. We are clearing an old (out of use) forest to make a forest garden, and many other cool stuff like designing and starting to build a superadobe house made from earthbags and a wooden shingle roof, rocket stoves, planting fruit trees and shrubs, mulching, building a terrace and a compost toilet and so on... We are very active people and we welcome volunteers who want to do some action and learn really useful permaculture knowledge. We are constructing with earth bermed structures earthbags and we often use excavators for the systematic earthworks that we do here...
We teach and design farms or how to reshape the land for building aquaculture strategies and organic gardening, therefore there is indeed much to learn about this topics. We also give advice and some homework to future study adapted on your specific requirements, or plans for a future homestead. We are mostly vegetarians, sometime we use eggs, dairy or fish.
Accommodation is in a caravan home (2 separate beds) or if you like with your/our tent, hence the main house is not yet finished. We kindly ask helpers to stay AT LEAST TWO WEEKS since there is a lot to learn and to do and it is simply not possible to understand all the complexity of this systems in less time than this and also being able to help around the farm. This way you have the chance to learn both theoretical and practical skills.

How to get there:
from Radauti town (county Suceava) take road 17A toward the village of Horodnic de Sus. In Horodnic de Sus while you are on road 2E go across the first bridge then you'll see a forestry road D44 on your left hand side. Keep on D44 as you will come across 4 bridges. Once you passed the 4th bridge continue straight ahead for 200 meters and the farm is on the right hand side, marked with a sign at the main gate: Hardic Permaculture Farm

See you soon at our farm :)
