Alte mentiuni: 

According to our opinion, going back to nature is not necessary being primitive, but to conduct a healthy life and make use of some commodities (electricity, water, internet but also healthy diet and much outdoor work). We consider volunteering as a way of enriching our life experience, an intercultural and interethnic exchange from which both parties can learn. We prefer open minded and self sufficient volunteers. We do not accept fundamentalists, rasist or violent behaviored, relegiosly fanatic people. We welcome people interested in natural medicine willing to learn more in this field.
