Permaculture farm, course center and camping

Here at Bogata Suma ("Rich Forest") you are welcome to join a course, join us as a volunteer or camp on our small and natural camp ground. We're situated in the heart of Croatia, in the middle of true nature.

Visit us for a workshop or course about permaculture, Cultural Emergence or personal development. Barbara Scheltus is a passionate, fun and inspiring permaculture teacher who learned from the best. Peter Scheltus truly loves to help people to find their best self, their passions and values. He has coached people to their personal succes.

You can rent our beautiful shepherd's hut in nature. As a camping guest you can also join us at The Table, our micro-restaurant where young chef Nol cooks you a delicious organic meal with ingredients from the terrain.

You can volunteer with us to learn about sustainabble living, permaculture, self sufficiency, various crafts, and work with our projects. Or live with us to setup a self sufficient community: we're growing a village!

Permaculture in practise at Bogata Šuma

Bogata Šuma is designed and developed using permaculture principles. We care for the earth, for the people around us and for the future. We are on our way to live self sufficient and we like to share our abundance. We like to create a sustainable habitat by following nature's patterns.

>> Permaculture and sustainable living courses

You can enjoy healthy food from our ecological garden, fruits from the food savannah, the living fence and forest garden, mushrooms from our forest and optional meat from our stable.

There is always room for guests at our table. If you want to have lunch or dinner with us, just give us a call or mail!
