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

UPDATE 10 October: We're promised sunny days for the next while - stunning autumn weather! Come and help me tidy the garden for winter... take advantage of glorious hiking weather, too.

*************

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; Asutralian Dave mended fences and chopped firewood; a couple from the UK helped create my stunning wood-lined attic; a Canadian couple dug over... more inside

* Languages spoken in the farm: French (native), English, some Romanian

* Description of the area:

Isolated farm in Transylvania, in a valley surrounded by woods (the wood is nearby – 50 meters – with a nice waterfall at wet season), streams and pasture. The closest village is Malin (400 inhabitants, 1,5 km from the farm). The first city is Beclean (10km).

* What do we grow on the farm?

We practice permaculture, and we grow our own food, for us and visitors. We are trying to reach food autonomy, so we need to harvest enough to fill the cellar for winter (potatoes, roots, jars…). We have a lot of walnuts and make oil with it. We have some chickens for eggs. We make hay for our tree donkeys and for mulching. We pick wilds flowers and make cream, oil, herbal tea...
We also do eco-construction to renovate the buildings : we are working as much as possible with natural materials (such as clay, straw, timber from the forest nearby…).

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

We prefer volunteers staying for at least a week.

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 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

We are an enlarged family, an association supporting people with special needs to integrate step by step into community life. We have several buildings (residential, workshops and sheds), vegetable gardens and parkland - all needing help for care and upkeep.
We have had good experience since many years with serious and open-hearted volunteers who have come for a week or two up to a year or more to share our life and tasks. We look for volunteers who can help us with the organic gardens and food production, and with doing up the buildings (incl. furniture) and their surroundings. If you have artistic or craft skills, there are many people here waiting to join you in activities.
We can offer food and lodging as well as enjoyment of a pleasant surrounding you can explore by foot, bike, bus or car.
However, we are strictly no drugs, no boozing and cannot allow 3rd persons in without our permission.
Our common language is Romanian. Some of us speak English and French as well.
