    Welcome, everyone! We are thrilled to share our heartfelt mission of revitalizing village life. We are a young couple, full of passion and excitement, who left the hustle and bustle of the city behind and embarked on a journey to the enchanting village of Oslen Krivodol in Bulgaria. We are now transforming a depopulating village and meadow into an artistic zone with a campsite with workshop space. We want to support the village's cultural life and bring back the life and the people here by creating an artistic platform. We are now building the infrastructure and also working actively on the extension of our biodynamic farm.

    Together, we have launched an initiative called Rural Renaissance. We collaborate actively with the locals in our village and the surrounding village and aim to create better conditions for the rural development and the thriving communities while promoting social equality.
    We are a small village with small amount of people, but a good mission. A team of individuals with big hearts and pure intentions fuels our NGO. Together, we work to organize inspiring cultural, artistic, social, and ecological projects as well as an amazing festival within the cozy embrace of Oslen in august.

    We extend a warm welcome to all those who are inspired and awake, embracing a life close to nature and with consciousness of the holistic approach. We are thrilled to meet the passionate and brave changemakers, the courageous souls, and the individuals who dedicate themselves to everything they do.

    Our doors are open wide to those who are unafraid of stepping outside their comfort zone, and who are eager to contribute to a better world. You are welcome to embark on an adventure, where personal growth and collective transformation go hand in hand. We welcome you on a harmonic schedule , where you can contribute to construction work/ gardening work / artistic work or all of them , while we gather the community and have sharing circles, singing circles and good moments of joy and being together in the nature weekly!

    However, in order to ensure a smooth integration process and meaningful participation for both sides, we generally accept volunteers for a minimum of two weeks. This allows ample time for getting acquainted with the project, fellow volunteers, and the overall rhythm of life at the campsite.

    We are particularly interested in volunteers with previous experience in this field, individuals who are not afraid of hard physical work and want to have fun and enjoy work. We are working on the restoration of the volunteer residency house, which will be a key place in our project, where we will unite volunteers and artists and your support will leave a significant trail. Meanwhile, we are working on the restoration of the old village school, which we are transforming into a holistic Waldorf kindergarten. Write to us and be part of a harmonious future.

    We have an organic bio farm which is working on the principles of the biodynamic gardening of Rudolf Steiner. We take care of each plant as a living being with soul. We collect rain water, make energy from the sun and have attitude to the live food, being aware that our state, mood and thoughts reflect on the quality and essence of the food. Come, join and learn more about the biodynamic farming.


    Skilled artists and drawing enthusiasts! We warmly welcome volunteers with previous experience in this field.We welcome an artist with experience ( or a fast learner) in creating mosaics from stones - look at the photos / We take stones from the river and create beautiful designs with them / and also paint on walls (murals) as we are restoring an old house in the village.


    Calling all passionate vegetarian cooks who find joy and pleasure in the art of culinary creation! We warmly welcome experienced individuals who can work their magic in the kitchen.
