Hay-making camp in Transylvania

The dates for this year’s Hay-making and scythe camp in Gyimes in Romania are August 9th – 16th . It is a magical area with a very rich fauna and flora that survive thanks to the traditional methods of agriculture that are still widely used there. Go to this link for further information about the camp and the area and click here to find out about the successful EuCAN visit to Transylvania in 2011.

There is also a wonderful YouTube film showing how the hay is brought down to the farmsteads in the winter.
