The Experience

We are developing the “BioDoMe” system - ecologically sustainable technology for heating and producing methane gas and natural fertilizers from organic waste, reducing CO2 footprint, while reducing fuel and electricity consumption.

This is a lovely place beside mountains and forest. The walks were fabulous. The work got me outdoors too which is what I sought and I had plenty of free time too. Food (vegetarian) was excellent and the work was light. The room and facilities were fine and the hosts, and their dog, were very accepting of my dog too!. Communication was inadequate and I always felt I was trying to fill in the gaps in between what I was told.

Volunteering here was the perfect way to immerse myself in Bulgarian culture, meet locals and learn about two things: 1) geodesic domes and 2) permaculture. If these are topics you're interested in I'd definitely recommend this experience!

It was incredible 🤩 I learned a lot with Dimo (and with the rest of the team too). He was an amazing host and let me totaly confortable. We were a good team there! Just good memories that I will bring with me forever.It was a different situation, most part of the time we were in other place, helping in a dome construction, but I'm sure it would be nice as well to stay in his place all the experience. Totaly recommend!!

Dimo was an excellent host from the beginning to the end!
He was always aware of what I need, and asks if everything is fine.
The work is quite easy because you can ask Dimo how to do the work and he explains and shows, so even for beginners (as me). it s a good experience to start. It was my 1st voluntary job with worldpackers and I m veey happy with this experience.
Most of the time there are others volunteer so you can exchange social experiences and learn from people.
Thank you Dimo !

My week at ZenDom's project was just perfect, except for it having been too short! I had no expectations but it happened to be awesome. I felt very welcome at Dimo's place by him and Kali. They both hosted and treated me as one more member of a very close and loving community. Every day new people would come around, therefore everyday's energy would keep dynamic and friendly. Daily tasks were mainly set in the morning, after a calm and totally unstressful waking up and welcoming the new day. It was a gift. Just GREAT. Thx for having me and for all the awesome and deep exchanges. See you soon!
