Permaculture farm Bogata Šuma

Established in: 2009
Open days: Yes

Bogata Šuma means Rich Forest in Croatian. And rich it is! We're living in an edible landscape that slowly transforms into a polyculture nut orchard.
Bogata Šuma now is a permaculture family homestead on the top of a hill in the forests of Croatia. Slowly we're growing a village with like-minded people who want to live a more self-sufficient life in nature.

We lead a simple, healthy, mostly self sufficient life as practical realists. We like to create a sustainable habitat by following nature's patterns. We live a natural life and we aim to inspire others to make natural choices.

At Bogata Šuma you can enjoy camping in nature (with bird songs, campfires and thousands of stars), volunteering to experience a different, natural lifestyle in harmony with Nature, or enjoy a course in sustainable living, permaculture, cultural emergence or self sufficiency.

I live with my family on a 12 hectare homestead in the heart of Croatia. My vision is to live a simple, healthy, happy life in nature, with like minded people to share and celebrate.
