Other comments: 

I chose to enroll in this list because seek socialization with people who think like us, help is welcome but are confident that we can be useful because a rich experience in this lifestyle, especially in the field of green building. Although the land is hidden, access is extremely easy, the land is situated in a valley between two localities, a valley with plenty of woods and a creek that embraces, caresses our land. The area is known for its health benefits, that due to high content of salt. (Sovata, Praid - Salt LAke and Salt Mine). We are also surrounded by many touristial and historical places, worth visiting.
