Description of the area: 
Our farm is located in a magical place inside Transylvanian mountains, in a valley surrounded by rivers.
What do you grow on the farm: 
We are just at the beginning of our journey, which is why we are in great need of help. This spring we started our first garden, and now green salad, carrots, potatoes and beans are growing. We also have an orchard with apple trees, plum trees and walnuts. We are in the process of buying some goats and a little donkey.
Farm size: 
1 hectar.
Months when they accept voulteers: 
From March to November.
Volunteer activities: 
Volunteers will help us with planting seeds, cleaning the dead branches from trees, gathering wood, helping with infrastructure and reabilitation of old traditional Romanian houses, building a bread and ceramics oven. In spare time there will be hikes and artistic workshops organized for them.
Accommodation: 
In colder months there will be accommodation in small traditional houses and in warm months depending on the number of guest volunteers we will provide accommodation in tepees and army tents.

Me vegetaria, He in the making :)
A few words about the family: 
For the time being it's just the two of us :) We met here, in the village and our dream is to grow and raise our children in this magical place. We are artists, he's a musician and I'm a sculptor, we love nature and music and all that is beautiful in the world. We wish to create a space where everyone is welcomed, where we can create a school, a center for arts and science, to teach and be thought and build up our dream together. We are both aware that there will be many obstacles ahead and that things can be very hard and rough at times, but we stay strong and move forward. He lives there permanently and I go in the weekends because I have a job and a gallery in the city. In time we wish to grow roots in our village and develop a self sustainable community based on respect towards nature, desire to learn new things and a residency program based on international exchange.
Pets: 
Panda - our dog bear :)
