    Descripción

    We're a family of 4 people: Vladimir (38), Julia (31) and our two kids. We live in an ecovillage, re-inhabiting 5 abandoned villages, wich were abandoned for almost 30 years. Since 2012, on this land we're building a new ecovillage ). We have a lake near us (1 km), young forests, a national park (4 km), no big cities (30+ km).

    Our family is mostly into growing trees, biodiversity and community building. We have 4 ha of land (10 acres) on which we have a tree nursery where we grow hundreds to thousands of trees yearly, plant them nearby and sell some.

    We also grow some vegetable to feed ourselves and our helpers. But we're not a sustainable farm and we don't grow all our food — we mostly buy it, because it saves us some time to work with the trees. We plan to become sustainable in the future, but we're farm from there yet.

    In 2019, our top priorities are tree care and building a family camp. When we're done, we'd like to set up two trails 5 and 13 km long, a botanical garden, a large playground for local children. We'll also do occasional farm keeping and construction work at our community site and neighbors, harvest herbs, berries and mushrooms, etc. If you like animals, we families with goats, cows, birds and a horse, who'd love to get your help.

    That's what we do and need help with. Planting trees, growing some vegetables, cleaning up forests, construction work, etc. If that sounds interesting — welcome! We will let you know everything we know about growing trees, permaculture and (almost) autonomous living. We speak English, but if you're learning Russian, we'd be glad to help.

    We're a last minute host also. If you have a Russian visa, but your host changed their plans -- feel free to come to us. We're open from April to September.

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    Many people visit us, all with different backgrounds. They learn agriculture and permaculture specifically, learn about growing trees and forests, and teach each other whatever they know, like irish dancing, performing with poi or how to make a bow yourself.
