    Hey there! We are Mitko and Maggie, a father and a daughter, living an eco-friendly lifestyle in the tiny, peaceful village of Sinemorets.

    Sinemorets is a village in the far southeastern part of the Bulgarian Black Sea coast, close to the Turkish border. The village is right on the sea, next to the picturesque Veleka River. It’s a superb base for visiting the nearby Strandzha Nature Park and hiking and birdwatching in the surrounding countryside.

    We've been living here for the past 15 years and have created a beautiful permaculture garden, with plenty of trees, veggies and fruits.

    We've been keen on building with natural materials for a long time now and we are looking for volunteers to help us implement our idea. On an area of acre and a half in the center of the village are located our 12 (actually 4 triple) bungalows.

    To make our jungle more cozy, we decided that this year we should build an adobe fence, an wooden shelter and two adobe ovens in which to bake delicious bread.

    If you want to try our delicious homemade dishes and be our guest in the bungalows, located 5 minutes from the beach, while together we learn how to build with natural materials, feel free to join us!

    In particular, our idea is to build together:
    • Shelter - about 84-90 m², 2.5 meters high, made of wood and green roof;
    • Adobe fence - about 32 meters long and about 1.5 meters high, with decorative parts;
    • Two adobe ovens.

    For those who aren't particularly interested in building with natural materials, there are plenty of other things to do, you can help in the kitchen, help in the garden, paint, draw, etc.
