  • Description


    I am Austrian and have been living in Romania, in the village of Tyrol, for a number of years. My project is an organic, permaculture, agroforest farm under construction. There are numerous animals for extensive grazing. Angus cattle, horses, donkeys, sheep, llamas, dogs, poultry etc. In the village old houses made of clay were bought and are being renovated. There is a house garden with hill beds, the aim is to be as self-sufficient as possible and to live independently.

    Ich bin Österreicher und lebe seit einigen Jahren in Rumänien, im Dorf Tirol. Mein Projekt ist eine Bio-, Permakultur- und Agroforstfarm im Bau.Es gibt zahlreiche Tiere zur extensiven Beweidung. Angus Rinder, Pferde, Esel, Schafe, Lamas, Hunde, Geflügel usw. Im Dorf wurden alte Häuser aus Lehm gekauft und sind dabei zu renovieren. Es gibt Hausgarten mit Hügelbeete, möglichst Selbstversorgung und autarkes Leben wird angestrebt.
