4 years ago my parents donated this 400m square land to me, in the same town where i was born & grew up, in the same place i used to pick colorado bugs from the potatoes leafs and watch for the goats and discover nature. Now the area became interesting for real estate investors and Bucharest is growing. As i grew i decided to balance the thrive for concrete and cars and pollution with this simple solution: keeping this garden as it is, a nature oasis. Here we will practice & teach permaculture as a way to self-sustainability, also art techniques and workshops and we welcome anyone is interested in this kind of lifestyle.
We have two hugelkultur beds, a keyhole garden, some trees(cherry, nut, apple,sour-cherry) , some shrubs(fig, gojiberry, redcurrant,gooseberry) and we also have a garage thet needs a practical set-up
The project needs a fence, a water tank and a caravan for hosting travelers and volunteers.
If we have the fence, then our dear plants won't be trampled by dogs and we can deliver healthy rich fruit and veggie baskets. If we have a water tank , watering the garden will be far more accessible than taking water out of the well with the bucket and the plants will be thankful under the summer sun. If we have a van we can host fellow travelers, volunteers and tourists in much comfortable conditions than tent camping. Also in the end of it all we must set up the workshop for a lot of creative ideas( in ceramics, painting, doll making,manuscripts & book binding).
These are the needs in the priority order and that's where your money will go: fence,water tank, van, workshop set-up)
We are an open community of artists, permaculture designers, free minded&creative people , aware that the world needs a paradigm shift in a greener light.
Crina Cranta is a fine artist & initiated the project, Cristian Iordache is a visual artist pasionate about pasive houses and eco-design, Teodor Terpez is an permaculture designer and a permaculture event organiser, 438 studio is the production playhouse that delivered our campaing video
Good news is that the project is alive, the bad news is that it needs an upgrade not to fall apart and for this we count on you , and us (but we alone are not enough)
One fine body…
