Hi there! 4 years ago I and my husband left Saint Petersburg to move to a small eco-village near Stavropol where we are creating a big garden and building our house. Who is interested in Anastasia's ideas to build Family Homestead Settlement is welcome to meet our place. I am a French & English teacher and I would be very happy to find someone who can help me to improve languages and landscape design.
DIY and building projects
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
Helping us you are going to get an interesting experience concerning Permaculture garden, Russian Family Homestead Settlement way of life and many other exciting things.
If you are good at French language or at English; if you are fond of gardening and know how to design the Permaculture garden, if you are interested in ecological ways of house building - you are so welcome to our "Happy Village".
1) a camping zone (we can provide you everything you need for camping)
2) a guest house equipped all minimum you need to rest and live comfortable
Advantages: pure air and water, nature, forest, vegetarian food, campfire, experience sharing, peace and quiet area (closest village - 3 km, nearest shop - 6 km), friendly atmosphere.
Now we do not have access to the Internet and electricity, but in 2 years we will have them installed after completing the construction of the house. All our neighbors have already got the Internet and electricity (Solar batteries) so in case of need or emergency they can help you.
Our village is 40 km from Stavropol which is the capital of Stavropol's region. There is a bus twice a day going to the city where you can spend a good time (museums, many sightseeing, beautiful parks etc) Every week-end there are many interesting excursions to the mountains of Caucasus.
