About

Hi all of you interested in the simple life close to the nature and the sustainable way of living in harmony with Mother Earth.
We are Kosi, Alexandrina (Alex) and our son Indiyana (Indy) from family estate Izvorche. It is close to the south border of Bulgaria with Turkey and is located in one project for ecovillage which is inspired from the books of the Russian author Vladimir Megre “The ringing cedars of Russia”. We left the big city to live our dream for clean, happy and healthy life in a community of people with similar visions for a sustainable life close to the nature.

Our intention is apart to create an alive Space of Love for our family to plant also a forest, fruit and vegetable gardens mostly with the methods of permaculture which harmonize with the needs of the nature.
Our aim is to replace the so called “overconsumption” which is one of the main problems of our society, with good practices based on the principle “reduce-reuse-recycle”.

Where we live, we are completely off grid, 20 km away from the nearest town, and with access from the main road by dirt road. We have electricity from solar panels, mobile reception, water from ram pump, a solar shower, a compost toilet. Our site is vegetarian and no smoking. We don’t use any chemicals in the garden, practice natural bee keeping, grow a part of our own food and also have a small business with herb products and natural food supplements, also wild-camp tourism.

For these of you who want to spend some time with us at our site we can offer enough space for tents outside(is better to bring with you your tent and sleeping bag for now we have only one tent to give), tasty vegetarian food and sharing of our knowledge and experience in permaculture and other good practices we’ve learned on our way.
Depending on the period of your stay, your possibilities and interests you could learn in practice:
- How to be natural bee keeper:
• Minimum intervention – maximum results;
• Honey extraction;
• How to create easy your own beehive ;
• How to “catch” a swarm;
• Which herbs to use for attraction and prevention of the bees and other useful things around the bees.

- Building an outside bathroom for all of the seasons.

- Other building and rebuilding activities

- What is a forest garden

- How to harvest and preserve herbs and what could you do with them (like herbal creams, tinctures etc.) and what they are useful for.
Around us there is a lot of grass which is need to be cut constantly (we cut it by hand with a scythe) and where there are small trees or other plants to be mulched by hand. We have also an automatic water system (drip irrigation) but not everywhere and some plants need to be watered by hand. So every help for this activities is welcome too.
We prefer volunteers to stay for a minimum of 1 week. This is more useful for us and also means you will get the most from the experience!
We are looking forward to contacting us. Thank you! :)
