  • Description

    Description

    This is a non-profit, non-governmental organisation providing assistance to persons with disability. We are an enlarged family supporting people with special needs to integrate step by step into community life. The Association is also concerned with care of the land and our environment and in particular promotes biodynamic agriculture, a form of organic farming practised since 1924, based on indications by Rudolf Steiner.
    Our aim is to promote social economy initiatives, especially in the realms of horticulture, biodynamic farming and healthy food.
    We have several buildings (residential, workshops and sheds), vegetable gardens and parkland - all needing help for care and upkeep.

  • Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You could learn about biodynamic agriculture through our involvement with farmers and producers in the region. If you are interested in learning the Romanian language, this is also a good opportunity. The people at the association are very friendly and eager to learn more about you, thus making communication critical.

    Help

    We look for volunteers who can help us with the organic gardens and food production, and with doing up the buildings and their surroundings. At present, the accent is on renovating and painting old furniture. If you have musical, artistic or craft skills, there are many people here waiting to join you in activities. We have had good experience since many years with serious and open-hearted volunteers who have come for a couple of weeks or up to a year or more to share our life and tasks.

    You can explore the pleasant surroundings of Urlați by foot or bike. The region is marked with vineyards, hills and forests. There are buses to Ploiești. By car, you can reach Bucharest in about an hour and a half. Brasov is also accessible by road on two different routes that cross the Carpathians Mountains. Both cities can be reached by train from Ploiești.

    We have a policy of no drugs and no boozing. If you want to invite guests in, we request you to inform us first.
