Novogorci is an old abandoned village situated into the wild mountain nature. There are only few houses and ruins around here. We are a young couple - Kliment and Silvia and we live in one of those houses. We came to live here 6 years ago and slowly started to renovate the house and to develop and grow a vegetable,fruit and forest garden. We're trying to be self-sufficient and off-grid as much as we can. We're practicing permaculture principles and building with natural materials. We have 2 horses and a dog. We eat mainly vegan and raw foods.
We are looking for and preferring long term volunteering (1-2 months at least)! 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 greenhouse, interior finishing work) and more.
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 an outdoor hot water showers.
Pure nature deep in the wild woods, big river nearby, ancient city ruins and castle, off grid, old roman bridge, 4x4 offroad, horse riding. 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...
