Let’s build a Geodome at Dea’s Farm
Description: We started in June 2013 with the purchase of a house with 3 000 sq.m land, which had been abandoned for 15 years. We called it Dea’s farm and started to recreate and rebuild it. In the last 5 years our work is based on the permaculture principles, combined with biodynamic calendar. We cultivate different types of organic vegetables, herbs and fruit trees. In our farm there are also bees, chickens and a dog. We want to spread the knowledge for permaculture, biodynamic agriculture, sustainable way of life and constructing with natural materials organizing different type of event, workcamps, etc.
Type of Work: Now we need help to finish the first geodome and fill the walls with hempcrete and plaster it with cob. Than we will start the construction of the second geodome. Meanwhile we will work in the garden, making rising beds, seeding, watering, weeding, harvesting the herbs, making a mulch. You can take care of the bees, or cutting the grass with scythe or mower. You will be able to see how we use permaculture, biodynamic methods, alelopaty, etc in our place.
Study Theme: Making geodomes / Plastering with hempcrete / permaculture, biodynamic agriculture, natural gardening, forest gardening
Accommodation: We can provide one big tent for 4 people and one small for 2 or you can bring your own tent if you want. Please bring your own sleeping bag, mosquito repellent, organic staff for washing and showering, old clothes, working gloves. The kitchen is outside, and the volunteers will cook for themselves in kitchen teams; There is also a sunny bathroom and compost toilet on the outside.
