    Surrounded by the hilly forest of Fruška gora and close to the city of Novi Sad, Serbia, our project is an intentional community in its beginnings!

    We are a family-based group of 6 people, who live and work together for certain parts of the year.
    The goal is to establish an eco-friendly, sustainable intentional community that, focuses on the organization of the events in the areas of eco-tourism, art and culture, kid and adult non-formal education, permaculture, & promotion of mental and physical health.
    Next to creating various cultural & ecological events, we have a long history of organizing international Volunteer Camps.

    Our International Volunteer Camps have become our tradition!

    Each year a different topic is chosen to and worked on.
    This year's focus: Earth Architecture & Eco-building!

    Help

    Would you like to be part of an innovative project that connects art, culture and ecology? Have you ever been to Fruška gora National Park ?

    MAIN WORK:
    We will learn to build ecologically sustainable structures following the ancient principles of Earth Architecture and Eco-building. 
Together we will work with our own hands and the basic elements like water, earth, Fire & wood to build objects such as rooms on the roof made of straw and clay, a garden kitchen, a composting toilet, entrance gate and similar.

    Every morning, before breakfast we gather for a little morning meeting, to agree about the daily tasks for the given day.

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    Accommodation is in the tents, in the peaceful, private-land camping area, on the hills of Fruska gora Mountain, just next to the national park. If it gets too cold for the tents, we have a sofa that opens up and mattrasses in the living room. When the roof rooms get to be usable for sleeping upstairs, this will be possible as well.
    We have 2 compost toilets, as well as outside showers outside, and a toilet with the shower inside the house for cold days.

    We love eating together!
    All participants are welcomed to eat together with us.
    So all three meals & coffee-snack breaks will be provided by organizers.
    Food will be diverse, colorful, tasty & plant-based ( vegan ), and will be made by the chef Goga, with the help of us.
