Help!
Sometimes it's hard to admit when, with all your good intentions and all the work you do, you will not succeed alone. And maybe you do not even have to make it alone, maybe together things will not go only faster but better. So, help!

We worked a lot and there is more to do. We build a summer kitchen so we have a place to eat and cook, a bath house so we have a dry compost toilet and a shower if the sun is shinining.

We are now building the main house and whit a little bit of luck and help the wals will be finished by the end of the september mid october.

We need your help so we can build the walls and put the roof.

In the day it is preaty hot but in the night there are less then 10 celsius. We all sleep in tents so we have one for you and sleeping matts but you need a good sleping bag.

We all eat at the same table, mostly vegetarian coocked food with egs, milk and chees.

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

We've lived on our smallholdng in Transylvania for three years and are still renovating, building and planning. We have turned some land to growing our own vegetables and are planning to have chickens in the near future. We are still at the very beginning of our adventure and have a lot going on both inside and out. We hope to find responsible, like-minded people who will help with projects, offer their ideas and skills and collaborate with work and planning. Work includes gardening and landscaping, small maintenance projects like painting and carpentry or building. Lots of good home cooked food and excellent ensuite accommodation on offer in return.

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 initiating people to waste sorting and other related products like... more inside

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

I am creating my private off-grid summer nature hideaway camp, very remote place in Romanian mountains deep in the forest

About

This is remote a camp, very spartan. There are no buildings, everything is outdoors, in the forest. The purpose is to enjoy the quiet, peaceful forest life away from the stress and distractions of the city. There is solar power and Internet access, freezer and gas cooker.

Its 6 km to the nearest asphalt road (with a bus stop), these 6 km can be passed on a rocky forest road, it doesn't need a 4x4 vehicle as long as it doesn't have low ground clearance.

I am doing this for healing and research of an ancestral way of life. The main points are: having a natural circadian rhythm (waking-up with sunrise, going to sleep when it gets dark), sleeping outdoors to be more connected to nature, not using electric light of wavelength below 550 nm (to protect melatonin), not carrying around mobile phones on constant basis (in order to be more calm and focuse... more inside

Update (August 2019): I'm taking a month off from HelpX after three amazing months of non-stop volunteers and visitors, and a HUGE HEAP of urgent work to be done! I'll be up for volunteers again for the second half of September and the first week of October, if that would suit you?

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

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'm Arabella, a British writer who moved to this little corner of heaven in 2010. I share the place with Buster, George, Mouse and their mother Hobbs - my clan of happy cats.

HOME: I have a modest house with a small patch of land in one of Romania's most beautiful villages, Magura, in the Piatra Craiului National Park. (NB This isn't a farm, and the only animals I have are the cats. Between October and May, anim... more inside
