  • Description


    Hello! I'm Andreea. I have recently acquired a piece of land (1.2ha) in a wonderful secluded area near the Rodnei mountainous area in Transylvania.

    Currently living in an RV which was transported on the land. There are no facilities or construction on the land, so I am looking for people who would like to help me build an off grid homestead: land preparation, natural building (earthbag and cob), gardening/permaculture, etc.
    I have some experiences in natural building, permaculture, few medicinal plants and remedies, composting and related fields, so this is an amazing opportunity to share and learn from each other while working together on a sustainable project.
