Our property is in the village of Hotnitsa, 15kms north east of the university town of Veliko Tarnovo.

Last summer with the help of volunteers we built a straw bale house - see our website for a short video of the process,it was great fun.

It's a bit wintery to work outside now so we're planning ahead for March 2010 when we'll need volunteers for the following jobs in the straw bale house:

to finish the cob kitchen
to make a rammed earth floor
to build a deck
and to apply a lovely, white coat of Kaolin to the internal walls.

And outside we'd like help to plan and
create a forest garden, using permaculture principles.

We're happy for people to come for a week/weeks/or the whole month whatever suits your travel plans.

We offer accommodation in an apartment attached to our house together with food and an introduction to the local culture. In exchange we'd expect you to work 6 hours per day for 5 days a week.

The work we've done so far has been fascinating and uplifting. We've discovered that it's amazing what you can do if you have a vision and some tenacity.

If you'd like to join us this year, that would be great. Give us a call/email.
