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. I have little experience in agriculture and am mainly learning on the job.

We offer bed and food to anybody willing to help run the farm. Hours are flexible, but generally 25 hours/week and we take Sundays off for sailing or relaxing. Depending on who is here and what projects we are working on, we sometimes work longer days one day and shorter days another day. We have internet and bathrooms both indoors and outdoors.

We have some animals: goats, sheep, pigs, chickens, a donkey, and a cow and of course some cats and dogs. So anybody who loves animals and/or vegetables and doesn`t mind getting dirty is welcome. We grow tomatoes, corn, potatoes, zucchini, beans, berries, and more. So there`s many things to do and many different skills are needed. We also have some community projects such as initiating people to waste sorting and other related products like com... more inside

We started out in 2015 and so far have completed a large fish pond (200 sq. m) which is also used for irrigation and swimming. Three swales have been constructed and planted, planted the fruit garden and sown a hemp and flax patch. We have recently acquired two milking goats and a flock of indian running ducks.

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

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

Hello dear helpers.

Im a 30 years old romanian girl born in Sibiu, who moved to this area to live a more qualitative life, with organic grown food, better air/soil and water,less or no hectic, with more animals around me,...

I am very interested in this lovely intercultural exchange, where all can enrich themselves, broaden their perspectives,eat and feel the power of love and nature and make the world a better place to live in...even if it means taking these small steps.

Attention: there are more than three Valisoaras in Romania, this one where i live belongs to the commune of Balsa, in county Hunedoara.
Balsa is a commune composed of fourteen villages: Almasu Mic de Munte, Ardeu, Balsa, Bunesti, Galbina, Mada, Oprisesti, Poiana, Poienita, Rosia, Stauini, Techereu, Valisoara and Voia.
Im 39km from Orastie.The nearest airport is in Sibiu(119 km from here), but there are more airports which aren't that far from Valisoara: Cluj-Napoca(175km), Timisoara(209km).
I dont k... more inside

Hi! I'm Radu, living in the centre of Brasov, and I've been working for a few years now (on and off) on improvements to the house in Sinca-Noua , a nearby village, where I grew up. This year I'm hoping that we can make some real progress at the house, so am looking for volunteers to help in finishing off the building and transforming garden into something beautiful again: generally tidying the place up a bit!

The village is set in the beautiful countryside a short drive through the mountains and forest from Brasov and the house is across the road from a little river and with glorious mountain views, particularly spectacular from upstairs.

I speak Romanian, English and German.

The house in Sinca-Noua needs some work, initially to tidy the garden and inside too, and then to do some light building work - laying some insulation upstairs, fitting some new windows, a little roofing (slipped tiles) generally decorating and finishing the cosmetics of the place as it's still a littl... more inside

We bought an old house with 9600 sqm of land (part of it with an old orchard with several plum varieties, apples, sour and sweet cherries). The land was not cared for at least the last 15 years so ... it is pretty free of any chemicals (or, at least, it should be).

What we plan to do there:
- clean the place (vegetation, hundreds of trees/bushes)
- do a chicken house
- raise some fences around the property
- clean the small pond (30 sqm or so)
- do a greenhouse
- design the place
- design and implement a drip irrigation system
- inoculate more mushrooms on the logs we will cut
- prepare beekeeping stuff (we have 3 hives now)
- renovate the house (it never rained inside it)
- clean the trees and plant new and mark the ones for grafting on them in the spring
- tons of other stuff to be done

So .. a lot of choices, depending on the weather, the help we get and so on.

Accommodation: the house is not yet livable (needs cleaning, r... more inside
