ZenDom

You can experience and learn:
construction and renovation of furniture and houses
geodome construction
building with natural materials
gardening herbs and wild edibles
fruit and herb picking and processing
general garden maintenance
commercial production of compost and soil substrates
preparation of composts and liquid fertilizers
building and repairing a lot of things


We are a couple of nature lovers with big ideas and positive vision. Dimo, the project leader, is in charge with the organisation of work. Work is suited for your point of interests, abilities and priorities. We eat seasonal mostly organic veggies and fruits from our garden, cold pressed juices out of veggies. No meat is processed or served at home. NB: Stay less than a week is more like couchsurfing and sight seeing. In such cases our visitors may contribute with little donation for the expenses of accomodation and food.

The stay was comfortable, educational, fun and will come back again. I had my own private room, had plenty of time to sleep, to have my own private time and to hang our with others. We started every day with tea and breakfast after which we would communicate what was the plan for today. I had many learning opportunities about tea herbs, knots, cooking, building with clay, dog training, motorcycle maintinance, breathing, sadhu nail boards, local monuments and many more which I cannot remember :) I am forever gratefull for the hospitality and will come back again(that is if they will have me :))

I recommend this volunteer opportunity for those looking to escape the fast pace of cities and enjoy the present moment. Throughout my time there, I was warmly welcomed by everyone. Dimo and Gala are very affectionate and respectful, and I felt very well-received! The food offered is wonderful and very healthy! I'm grateful for all the moments of connection we had with meditation and breathing sessions!

It was a brief but cool experience. I wish I could go back again for a longer period and when Dimo is already working on some projects 🙌🏻✨ He was a very good host and has a lot of knowledge to share☺️

Don't! I do NOT recommend this for people who don't speak Bulgarian and also not for people who don't use. Especially if you're both, like me. Its a mismatch.

I slept in the kitchen. There was no privacy at all, even the bathroom door has no lock. I did not feel safe.

No communication, I had no idea what to do or what was expected. They only spoke Bulgarian to eachother and I felt very left out.

Nothing to do in the area, there is 1 'bus' (van) that goes from Yasenovo to Kazanlak once a day. Other than that no public transport.

I didn't feel good nor safe so I left.

Please don't come if you travel style is with suitcases, your main interest shopping and if you expect volounteering is something like couchsurfing...
Faya seemed very humble and closed person. We tried to communicate with her and integrate, the only things we could understand about her are exposed in the first sentence. I found qite passive agressive to have her staying in the room with her earplugs and scrolling on the phone insted having conversation with us.
Obviously there are people that don't appreciate our hospitality - good food, place to stay, bathroom etc...
Well after more than 10 years and more than 100 people joining the project there a few people that we didn't got along and I think it's fine. It's pity to hear all that things from Faya only from her comments here. Faya I would recommend you to speak your needs straight away. We've never guaranteed private room. Same time we had girl from Colombia saying for a month and having great time.
Wish you all the best Faya indeed I don't think we deserve such bad review.

Estuvimos una semana con Dimo trabajando con él en su proyecto. Fue una experiencia interesante para nosotros, que no teníamos experiencia en trabajar en el campo o en la construcción. Durante los primeros días el voluntariado fue confuso: no entendíamos bien cuál era nuestra tarea, cual era el sentido, así como el reparto de las tareas de comida. Luego de tener una charla con Dimo, que siempre se mostró disponible pero a veces poco comunicativo, la experiencia cambió radicalmente y disfrutamos mucho del trabajo y la estadía. Recomendamos para trabajar la tierra y conectar con ella.
