UPDATE 10th NOVEMBER 2017: - SEEKING ENTHUSIASTIC VOLUNTEERS FROM 15TH OF NOVEMBER!

Hello everyone! We're Dan, Sam and Jason, 3 young world travellers from England and the USA. With over 16 years of combined travel experience, hitchhiking and couchsurfing in over 60 countries, we travelled with a dream to start our own hostel one day.

After years of hard work and dedication, we finally made our dream a reality. In November 2016, we opened a homely hostel/tea house combo in Bucharest based around principles of learning, growing and community.

Besides a nice location just 5 minutes walk away from central Unirii square, we have a beautiful garden, stage, and host / run workshops, events & other social gatherings at the hostel, and focus on giving every single one of our guests a memorable experience.

We are prioritizing people skilled with marketing, videography and social media skills, but also to help with making beds, cleaning, hanging out with guests, and little tasks... more inside

Our property is nestled in the picturesque Tohani hills, surrounded by vineyards and ancient almond orchards.We had the desire for many years to live more close to the land and be self sufficient, but this year we made courage and we have moved from Wales together with our kids and dogs to Romania to have a fresh start.
We want our buildings to be environmentally friendly as much as we can.
With very little building experience we have started. We will like people to come and learn and even more so to teach us or to learn together with us how to live and build more responsibly.
We will need help with picking berries and fruits to make jams and preserves for the winter,foraging.

Hi everyone! Welcome :)
I live in a small and old saxon village (UNESCO Herigate Site) called Copsa Mare, in the heart of Transylvania.
I live in a very simple and relaxed way, trying to be in harmony with nature in my small but cozy house. I make hand made products out of wool (felt), such as shoes, hats, bags, carpets, etc.
When the weather allows, I will need from my volunteers to help me in my garden with work such as, picking fruits, planting new vegetables and fixing fences.I have some medical problems in the backbone, so I can not get things up. A good help would be the one who likes physical work to.
And when the weather is not that comfortable to work outside I will need some help inside, like working with the wool. Better if you have experience with this, but if not, I am more than happy to teach you this lovely art.
And during all 4 seasons I will need help with general tasks like cutting wood, feeding the chickens and ducks, and some possible renovation works in t... more inside

I am creating a health research and healing retreat center for people to live an ancestral way of life to a certain degree. The main points are: having a natural circadian rhythm (waking-up with sunrise, going to sleep when it gets dark), not using electric light, not carrying around mobile phones on constant basis (in order to be more calm and focused by being disconnected on purpose), eating only high nutrient density foods without most industrially processed ingredients, keeping the food and environmental toxin load as low as possible, also by not using toxic building materials in the house (synthetic materials, paints, foams, glues, formaldehyde in wood, volatile organic compounds in mattress, bedding, clothing).


At the moment this project is ONLY for people who are ready for harsh conditions, think military survival and establishing a base camp in the middle of nowhere in a mountain forest where you start from almost nothing, in winter! This can be a great adventure but be... more inside

We have a small farm that we want to expand and keep as organic as it used to be when our grandparents used to run it. We have little experience in agriculture and we are mainly learning on the job. We offer bed and food to anybody willing to help run the farm.
We have some animals; goats, sheep, pigs, chicken, a donkey and a cow and of course some cats and dogs. So anybody who loves animals and doesn't mind getting dirty is welcome. One of the projects for 2017 will be setting up a greenhouse of more or less two hundred square meters; that's going to be some tough work that we're looking forward to. This year, hopefully, we'll be planting some trees too.
Many other big projects might pop up any time, but there's always the day to day maintenance of the farm and machines, painting, building, mending and many more. You won't get bored. We also have some comunity projects; initiating people to waste sorting and other related products like compost and more.
So there's many things... more inside

Our house is open for helpers that enjoy simple & social living.

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 w... more inside
