We are a couple of young artists, Bianca and Cezar, who believe in freedom of expression through art. We chose to move away from city life so we can let our creativity flow free and be close to nature.

Our home is in a village at the bottom of Apuseni mountains (we are at around 600m) in a beautiful area which is part of the ancient “Gold road” starting from Rosia Montana, going along the peaks surrounding our village and up to the Dacian fortresses.
The household we bought recently is in relatively good condition despite not being inhabited for the past 10 years, we have around 0.5 ha of orchard (mostly plum trees) and garden areas. We have a solid barn that we plan to turn into a space for workshops, lounge and living; a shed which will be turned into our workspace; a small house-kitchen and 1 bedroom- which needs to be restored and a bigger house where we live.

For this year, we plan to build a fence around the property, a solar and vegetable garden, chicken coop, summer... more inside

SUMMER: I really want to make progress with my garden this year... and if you can do mosaics, I have projects for you. If you are good with your hands and have an eye for things, and like using your muscles, you'll be VERY welcome! I also have some painting and other jobs to do inside, if the weather is against us.

Come and do the Timewarp in Transylvania... It's a little bubble of rural paradise, 1,000m up in the Carpathian Mountains of Romania, where villagers still use horses and carts, make hay with scythes, use traditional smallholding skills and have a simple way of life. I've had a number of HelpXers over the last few years and they've made a fantastic contribution to the house and the garden, for which I'm extremely grateful. For instance: A little gang last autumn dug out a bank in the garden and built a wall and firepit with the tonnes of limestone boulders they unearthed. A couple built a long flight of steps using beams from the old shed; Australian D... more inside

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 constructing with earth bermed structures earthbags and we often use excavators for the systematic earthworks that we do here.

Heavenly Village Romania is the name I give to this big and inspiring Project. With an international group of people, friends, family, young and older, volunteers and everyone that is interested we have the goal to bring life back again in the old off road village of Bratea. Let me introduce myself, my name is Mike, I am a world citizen from the Netherlands, I travelled a lot and amongst other things I have experience with running a successful Bed & Breakfast with volunteers from all over the world. I have some knowledge and experience in building my own habitat, ecological agriculture and permaculture. I wish to grow in this and to realize the principles that goes with the theories here on this land.

MAKE YOUR PRECIOUS TIME COUNT: COME AND HELP!

We are a Canadian family living in Romania trying to make a difference in our backyard.

WHY?

Old age in the Romanian countryside is a Horror! No running water, biting cold, no hot meals, being snowed in and unable to leave your home for weeks! Peasant farmers without their extended families are left to fend for themselves.

WHERE?

LISA TELEORMAN is a small town near the Danube in desperate need of a helping hand.

WHAT?

Our team is currently establishing an organic farm to offer financial support to the needs of a pay-as-you-can centre for the elderly in LISA, Teleorman, ROMANIA.

WHAT DO WE NEED FROM YOU?:

We need to have painters and help to install two bathrooms with showers. If you know how to mix cement, swing a hammer or dig you are welcome! In addition to construction workers, we need help to pull weeds and clear about 4000m2 of farm land that has not been worked for 10 years.

There is an orchard, a fi... 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 2018 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
