Bogata Suma permaculture farm in Croatia




Volunteering at Bogata Suma

Volunteering come to Bogata Suma to learn about permaculture and a sustainable, self sufficient lifestyle. Peter can help you on your personal path to a fulfilling life for yuo; Barbara gives you tools to live more in harlmony with nature.

In a 4 or more week program you can learn about organic gardening, no-dig, polyculture and companion plants, several ways of composting and mulching, about how we keep our animals happy & healthy, how we make wine, beer, cheese, yoghurt, bread, kefir and kombucha. Of course we also make our own mayonaise, ketchup and cookies.

At Bogata Suma you can learn what permaculture is, how we apply permaculture principles in our lives and how you can use it in your life.
We can discuss the permaculture designs for our land (overall design for the land, nut orchard design, chicken garden design, grey water cleaning swim pond design...) and the ones we made personally. Like Barbara's permaculture facilitator pathway design and Speak fluent Croatian pathway design.

If you are interested, you are between 18 and 28 years old and you can stay for a month or longer, you can write us (Peter and Barbara) about you, what you want to learn for your future, your skills and in what way you want to live your life.

"Nearly never leaving and having a daily party because of it, the place keeps you there despite planning other things. Building a roof together & you being the most gracious and generous hosts I could wish for. You are brilliant examples of how to live well."
