Thank you for visiting my campaign!
Progress at any level has its foundation in the personal values of everyone. The more harmonious the values the better the quality of our lives, personal or as a community.
This campaingn promotes the idea of living healthy, connected with Mother Nature, self sustained, joy, meaningful, and maybe most important, freedom.
2 years ago I moved from a city life in Bucharest to a hillside in Transylvania, Romania. I found a beautiful, heavenly place (Huta Voivozi village, Bihor county)that is perfect in any way you are looking at it. I have a eco-friendly house, a lot of land, trees, running water from a clear spring, electricity, perfect road to my plot of land, healthy soil, forests, good neighbours, best of air and best of all, peace.
My most important values are truth, freedom, empathy, meaning and unity. Based on this, I would like to create a place where anyone interested in a way to make a difference in their lives could experience the beauty of this lifestyle and be inspired and encouraged to pursue the calling of their heart towards Nature.
In order to create this example I would need resources to build two natural houses made with straw bales, wood and stone, a shetler for some animals (horses mostly), a cellar made from natural materials (earthbags most likely), a half burried green house so it will produce food even in winter time, different tools to help in the garden, an orchard of different fruits and plant as many pine trees as possible along my property limits.
Each of the two houses will cost around 8000 euros, the barn around 4000, the cellar around 1200 euros, the orchard renewal around 500 euros, the greenhouse around 1000 euros, each pine tree costs around 6 euros and the tools needed for construction and gardening around 700 euros
The houses will be used to accomodate the visitors that will be welcomed all year round, the barn will be used to accomodate some animals in need (some will stay permanent and some will go for adoption), the cellar will be used for food storage and the greenhouse for producing food. The orchard is already present but it is old and needs caring and new healthy trees. There are hundreds of metres of pine trees to be planted so they can make an even better air quality around the property, act as a wind protection in the future and look as beautiful as they can.
The idea is that everyone interested in being free from an opressing system in the city can have an actual and confortable experience in living in the countryside, learning that a natural house is more healthy for him and for the environment, more beautiful and cheeper than an conventional one. One can learn how to work and create his own food and why this aspect is so crucial in our lives and in our freedom overall. Also he can clear its mind from stress in a peaceful place with excellent air quality, ideal water and wonderful landscapes.
Campfire, cooking healthy, picking mushrooms from the near big forest will also have an impact on everyone on how life can be for everyone, simple, meaningful, happy, positive and free.
There will be no costs implied in anyone's visit, except maybe for the food, if the situation asks it. You can be one of them. Or maybe someone you know that needs this kind of opportunity to see life from another angle.
This whole idea is to help evaluate our daily choises based on actual and confortable alternative.
We can make life better, for us, for animals, for everyone around us.
If you find the world needs a change for the better, I believe this is a simple, cheep and practical solution. Living closer to nature, learning its meaning in our life, understanding food, empathy, tranquility, freedom, simplicity and harmoy can reorganize one's priorities which in turn his life and the life of those around him. This is how we can make a difference, this is how we can profoundly change the world for the better.
Help this project help yourself and others. Be the change! Nurture the roots and the flower will blossom.
