We are turning our 12 hectares into an edible landscape where tourists can camp and enjoy nature. You can help us with the animals, work on the terrain, in the garden and the food forest. After the intro week we will discuss what more you want to learn, what you enjoy the most and how you can contribute best.

Amazing place to discover and learn about everything!! I’m so happy that i have been part of this project. Met beautiful people, cooked with Nol (He is a really good chef) and Barbara who also knows a lot about cooking! and eat delicious food, enjoy nature, forest, animals. It was also time to pick mushrooms so I got really into it and it was just amazing. Learn about permaculture, and how to approach everything! I also did a few construction projects with Peter and others volunteers where a learnt about wood. I guess I don’t have space enough to write everything. THANK YOU BOGATA SUMA

Staying in Bogata Suma for a month was an incredible experience!
Barbara and Peter are such lovely people and I am truly thankful for all the conversations, learning, lunch and dinner times, all the passion shared about nature, for showing their visions about life and sustainability, everything was amazing!
Their children Noll and Fleur were a nice companionship as well, during campfires and other moments with all the volunteers.
The food was delicious and the caravan where me and my boyfriend stayed as well.
If you wanna be immersed in nature w/ nice people, that's the place!

My experience in Bogata Suma was amazing. I learnt many things about permaculture, but also I really appreciate the fact that Barbara and Peter tried to help all of us to find or develop our personal projects. This is the perfect place if you want to learn about permaculture, spend time in nature (I'm really going to miss my daily walks through the forest), and have time to reflect on your life and projects. Nol's food is amazing and super healthy! He taught me how to cook some delicious Croatian dishes and I've had such a great time playing cards and hide and seek with Fleur!

I've been 4 weeks in Bogata Suma and it has been a really good experience. The family is really charming and I felt good since the first moment.
I've been working mostly in the garden with Barbara, because at that moment were no projects of building. I have learnt a lot of permaculture and the uses and properties of the plants. I am really happy with that.
We were working some hours in the morning and a bit more after lunch. The rhythm was calm.
I recommend it to everyone who wants to learn, have good conversations and eat delicious food!
