Our ranch is a high elevation farm in the mountains of Transylvania. We are semi secluded with a few neighbours only and lots of open space, with a wonderful view. A place for lovers of nature, art and music, where you can get away to a unique sanctuary and enjoy cultural exchange and a more sustainable way of living. For some finding their path towards a more natural way of living is not easy and they need some guidance and exposure to nature in order to realize that what they are missing in life can be very easily obtained again.

We accept open minded, ambitious, creative people who are eager to share their experiences and their skills with us. If you are undemanding and you love nature, you will have a great time at the Ranch. You can come with your own ideas and work in groups with other volunteers. We don't have any animals right now, but we have plenty of gardening work and ecological construction projects.
Help is 3 hours in the morning and 2 in the afternoon. Tuesday is a free day, Sunday is a free day and also half of Saturday. Help is mostly outdoors. We live in a communal way, which means we share all household duties as well, which are not included in the volunteering hours (cooking and cleaning are communal hours which are separate from the volunteering hours).
When you are not helping you can go to hikes (we do that quite often). The surroundings are beautiful with a waterfall and forests.We usually have 2 days off a week so you have time to enjoy the surroundings as well . We don't offer internet access, but there is limited internet access in the center of the village, and mobile phone access is also limited (only Vodafone signal). Children and pets are not allowed due to safety reasons. Please ask us if you have any questions, we are flexible:)

We live a minimalistic lifestyle. We want to support slow growing, which means that we do not exploit the land and nature. We also support local food bought from small businesses rather than supermarkets as much as possible. Note that the closest market is 30 km away, so food supplies have to be planned and used with care. We recycle what we can by separating our trash and finding a second use for items. We buy in bulk and fresh, minimizing packaging, and by composting our organic waist we do not use chemicals in our gardens. The ranch is a home, where people share everything and respect everyone. Leaving the common areas clean is one of the most essential rules on this farm. We work together, we have meals together, we create together a better way of living.
When you stay at the Ranch you will have a place to sleep and healthy organic food to eat. Depending on the number of people you can sleep in a guest room, hay loft or in a comfy tent. you might have to share a room with other volunteers. Accommodation is simple and rustic: you can sleep on a bed with a hay mattress, a warm wool blanket and watch the stars at night from your window. With fresh spring water and a privy with a mountain view what else do you need? We have mainly a vegetarian diet, with fresh milk every morning, home made cheese, cream and vegetables.
We also organize workshops for people who would like to learn more about sustainable living, permaculture, ecological construction and various types of arts.
