    Description

    Hi everyone! Spring is coming in Romania. We are a family with 3 children and we almost finish our eco house in Rasnov, a mountain area near Brasov. The house is made from straw bale and cob and we start working inside the house. We start working also in the garden - permaculture. We are looking for volunteers to help us during the spring - summer 2019. We can offer in exchange, camping place or caravans and local healthy - organic food.
    We are 15 minutes away from Bran Castle (the famous Dracula's Castle) and 5 minutes from Rasnov Medieval Fortress. Brasov City is one of the biggest and beautiful city from the heart of Romania.
