Hello! We are Tiberiu and Camelia, a young couple living in a small village in Romania right at the meeting point of colorful plains and the Carpathian mountains.

Tiberiu studied architecture for 3 years in Paris, became very passionate about eco-construction and earth building, and got interested in permaculture. He is a vegetarian for 2 years and producing his own food became a priority and a passion. Camelia studied kinesiotherapy and right now she study horticulture in Bucharest. She is passionate about plants and nature, about cooking and caring for people. We both try to have a balanced lifestyle and be present in all aspects of life : physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual. We train our minds and our bodies with cold showers and conscious breathing, we meditate and pray, we work in the garden fully conscious about our bodies and our posture, we have sharing spaces to express our emotions. We like to celebrate through dance and playing instruments.

!!! Desperately need help. Contact me for more info !!!

I have a small farm that l want to expand and keep as organic as it used to be when my 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: pigs, chickens 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, everything in the spirit of permaculture. So there`s many things to do and many different skills are needed. We also have some community projects such as initiat... more inside

The elderly in these parts have miserable pensions and many when they become widows are left with little assistance. To help, a Canadian-Romanian family are building a charity home for the aged townsfolk without families to support them. The building will also serve as a community centre, and eventually an organic farm will be started too.

A video log of Lisa and our project was done by an Australian family of 5 who came here. They have their own vlog project and website. At the same time that the family was here, we received a group of about 25 cyclists that were brought here to help. They were featured in the video shown below.

[Please note that the town of 'Lisa' where the project is situated, is the 'Lisa' in Teleorman County, NOT the town of 'Lisa' hundreds of kilometres north in Brasov County, in the Fagaras area!]

Hey you ! Do you want to come and spent some nice time in wild Transylvania ? It's a place where the time has stopped and rural life isn't a fake touristic attraction but beautiful hard reality.

My house and grounds are located in the hills nearby Bradetu village, 750m up in the Carpathian Mountains by the foot of the highest part - Fagaras. The environment is a healthy variation of forest and prairies, streams and rivers blooming with (sometimes rare) life. The air is clean, fresh and the night skies are glorious.

*Home
My home is an eco-friendly straw bale construction. Clay was used for the finishing of the straw walls and interior walls. The floor of the attic was filled with sheep's wool. You will have one big room with spectacular views all around. Sanitation is basic because of no running water. In the house is a dry toilet using sawdust, bath and wash-basin. Inside the house you can find mobile signal out mostly only weak, no wifi connection. The sun gives us enough e... more inside

CORONA UPDATE: June 2020
I'm so sorry - I had sort of forgotten about HelpX in the lockdown Ė but now that some restrictions have been lifted I've had some requests to come and help. I'm in a vulnerable group (old, dodgy health) so I'm staying in lockdown as far as possible, and am NOT taking HelpX (or any other) visitors for now. My garden is a tropial jungle and I'm desperate for help... but I'm to nervous about this damnable disease. I'm not hiding my listing because I want you all to know I'm here and keen to have HelpXers as soon as it feels safe. I hope you understand, and wish you safe and wonderful travels.

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.

Brief story:

2015
the project begun to take shape on a 1 hectar property, the bottom of Carpathian Mountains, Bucovina region of Romania.
The intended plan was to build a house, vegetables garden, fruit orchard.. the usual stuff which most of us can aspire at some stage in life, to create a homestead, in this case combining permaculture principles and some traditional farming practices.
Nothing on the property at that time except a natural lake sustaining itself from its own underground springs.
A holiday caravan/trailer was installed here in summer, giving wings to the start.

2016
fencing done, part of the fruit orchard planted, three swales on the lake side have been constructed and planted. A dry toilet done. Everything seemed to work in puzzles and the house foundation has been made.
Soon the works had to slow down due to the lack of manpower (not referred to men only). In this part of Romania one might experience a difficult task to find/employ people with a dedi... more inside

We run a small scale goat farm in the Carpathian mountains. We have twenty goats, we make matured cheeses. The goats feed is lots of traditional manual hay work. In spring there is lots of bottle feeding work with the little goats. In autumn there is apple picking and making of preserves for winter. In winter there is heating and snow shoveling. We have also a guesthouse for 10 tourists. And further there are daily household jobs, the chickens, the vegetable garden, cooking, cleaning, ... We offer the volunteers a room with own bathroom in our house.
