Novogorci is a really old and currently abandoned village situated into the wild mountain nature. There are few houses and ruins around here. My name is Kliment and 10 years ago I bought one of those houses. I used to live here most of this time but a few years ago I left for a big project in the city. Currently, I'm back for a second month now and slowly started to renovate the house again and to develop and grow a vegetable, fruit and forest garden. I love to practice permaculture principles in all areas of life (I have a PDC and also PTTC) and also try to be self-sufficient and off-grid(as much as I can)... I have a horse but she's not here with me at the moment. I eat mainly vegetarian, vegan and raw foods. Professionally I'm an artist doing creative & art direction, branding and design lately.
I'd prefer long term volunteering if possible (1-2 months at least)! In this way, you won't have to leave just when you adapt and learn everything about the place.
We're currently open for volunteers, so if you're not afraid to travel you're more than welcome! Thank you! <3

We need help with the garden (planting veggies, trees, harvesting), the horses (feeding, watering, etc.), building(fence, plastering the house and the barn, finishing construction of the greenhouse, interior finishing work) and more. Whatever inspires you here :)
There are few places in the other house ( two rooms ), when the time does not allow sleeping outside ;) We also hope that we'll soon have one more room fixed ( for 2 more people ) in the house for our volunteers. Otherwise tents in the yard or somewhere around... it's wild and beautiful:) . We have an outdoor compost toilet and outdoor hot water showers.
Pure nature deep in the wild woods, big old river few kilometers away, ancient city ruins and castle, off-grid, old roman bridge, 4x4 offroad. Volunteers who come here will have the opportunity to learn a lot about the principles of the permaculture design and also they will be able to practice and experiment on their own. In our library, you will find books with topics as natural horsemanship (KFH method mostly), permaculture design, art&graphic design, sustainable living, self-awareness, human design, gene keys and the golden path, yoga and fitness ones, healthy eating and ayurvedic kitchen, etc...
