    What is our priority work in autumn:

    Thank you in advance if you are with some experience or you are hardworker and learn fast a new skills, you are very wellcome.
    - harvest wood for a winter
    - digging planting garlic and other autumn vegetables.

    Thanks a lot reading down our profile before your coming! :)

    We are a hospitable family with 3 small kids living in southeast Bulgaria in a Kin domain named Izvorche (Little Spring). We like working in a team, celebrating together and constantly creating our Space of Love on the land we have off-grid in a hilly area. We are vegetarian but eat mainly vegan food. We are no smokers and try to live healthy and happy simple life close to the nature.
    We are part of community, starting a project for ecovillage 2006 y. From the zero on a deforested field. Some of the aims and causes here are:
    - Planting half of the site with trees creating a forest.

    - Regeneration of deforested and eroded terrains from unreasonable management and their transformation into fruitful forests-gardens using the methods of permaculture and other Earth-sparing knowledge and methods.

    - Reduction of the ecological and carbon footprint of the families living in Family Estates

    - Collection and transplanting of old (non-hybrid) varieties of vegetables and fruit trees

    - Cleaning of the surrounding area from garbage, as well as the surrounding areas, fountains, rivers.

    - Construction of energy efficient (passive) homes.

    - Reduction of consumer practices and their transformation into production of local food products and handicrafts, conscious reduction of household goods to a comfortable minimum. Local food

    - Restoration of old arts and working with natural materials.

    For your information till you get to our site there is 1.5 km dirt road. Also we have an independent electricity and watersystem from solar panels and wells.

    The place we live is close to a small dam, forests and the Turkish border. The closest town is Elhovo where you can go to the local market, you can have some shopping, visit the ethnographic museum, walk through the eco path nearby etc.

    The nearest mountains are Stara Planina mountain, Strandja mountain and Sakar mountain. Black sea is 90 km from us.

    About the animals we grow we have some hans, chikens and bees, horse.

    Part of the family income comes from our home made herbal products like salves and tinctures, food supplements and stuff from the garden.

    What we would like to ask you as parents if you decide to come as a volunteer is to be responsible with the children around (ours and these of our neighbors) in the way of speaking, acting and interacting with them. Just to know that ours are very friendly and sociable so if you are patient enough and like playing with children this would be an advantage and at the end you will definitely have at least two small friends. Also about the food they eat vegetarian and mainly home made food so please ask us what is appropriate before giving them something to eat or drink or you are not sure for something.

    Families with kids we accept. But mostly in a summer for now. Now we build a room for guests, but its need a time to be ready. At now we have a caravan and bungalow that is comfortable for family with maximum 1 kid, because they are very small.
    Also we need to make some agrreements for some balance for a kid and a parent that usually take care for a kid( from our experience people with kids are many times more like tourists, so balance is need to have some justice from our point of view.)
    So nothing personal, but we are very happy to accommodate families with kids to play with ours, but with some balance that we can discuss together before your coming vey clearly.

    About the smoking we prefer no smokers but if you smoke we need to make clear where would be the smoking corner and where to collect the cigarette ends.

    Thank you in advance for your understanding and respect!

    We live simple life and please to not expect some luxury. Now we are in a construction process. But we will try to do the best, your stay here be comfortable how we can.
    Off grid living its nice, but think before come here if you are ready, for it because here are some challenges with roads 15 km. far from shops etc.

    WE have place for camping with your campervan or tent
    In hot time of year shower outside, in a winter in a house.
    Vegan or vegeterian food 2 times per day plus some fruits in a day. ( on a site is not appropiate to eat meat, but possible in the near town)
    We are no smokers and ask smokers to do this only outside and be very carefull, because in sumer its a big danger from fire on a site. Even in a summer we will be gratfull if you dont smoke here.
