    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are a small community in Romania that started in 2019 and since then we are constantly developing and learning how to live in a more sustainable way in harmony with our surroundings. You will have the possibility to meet people from all walks of life, from different fields, and will be able to learn from them. We have several workshop areas: one for woodworking where you can learn how to build things; an electric studio where we build lighting systems, put together extension cords, play with software that does amazing visuals; a decoration workshop area where you can paint, learn how to sew, create string art techniques etc.

    The association has a permanent location, what we call the "Headquarters". This is located at the edge of a very small village, in the valley where the festival takes place once a year.
    Throughout the year and especially during Summer there are members of the association that live constantly in this house and help with different projects.
    There are two areas in which we need help: gardening and cooking.
    Everyone who stays in the Headquarters is a volunteer, thus they get meals in exchange for their help. We eat vegan and vegetarian food. During the Summer this means there are approximately 10-15 people to cook for every day.
    There is a 300 square meter vegetable garden that provides us with food, which requires daily maintenance. Beside this there are fruit trees, grapes, fruit bushes etc.

    Can possibly accept pets

    Take into consideration that we have a dog that is a Romanian raven shepherd dog, around 50 kg. She is friendly with other animals but does not like dominant dogs. We also have 4 cats that are free to roam around, so take into consideration that your pet should feel comfortable around them and not hurt them in any way.
