Green Village project site: www.greenvillage-europe.com

Green Village (2010-2013)  This project unites  nine European countries (Bulgaria, Cyprus, Germany, Ireland, Island, Italy, Romania, Slovakia, United Kingdom ) that share common problems in their local rural areas, such as outward migration of young people, aging populations, abandonment of land, loss of traditional skills, disintegration of cultural landscape. The participants from these countries will collaborate on the following study areas/ work packages:  “Sustainable buildings”, “Empowering communities”, “Rural energy”, “Rural food”, “Wood products” and “Sustainable ancestors”.

Actions organised by us:

2012 – Empowering Communities

In  August 2011 “Satul verde” hosted the “Rural Food “ action in Romania. Participants from Bulgaria, Cyprus, Slovakia, the UK  spent a week in the village of Girbovita and in the Apuseni Mountains, learning to cook traditional Romanian food. We made stuffed cabbage rolls, cottage cheese dumplings, plum dumplings.We also baked bread in the wooden- lit oven.All the ingredients we used came  from the village: vegetables, eggs, flour, etc. Participants got an insight into  a typical Romanian village &  sustainable village life.
