This speech tells the story of a little boy’s dream of living in nature, being sustainable and building hobbit houses.

Andrei is a designer and a permaculture teacher and promoter. Choosing this sustainable way of life takes courage and perseverance, inviting you to walk on a road less traveled. Andrei decided to take his chances and for the past 3 years spends time at Baza Ulmu, a special place where houses are built of dirt, people take care of livestock and everyone personally knows everyone. His story is one of simplicity, with minimal intrusion in the natural landscape, away from technology but directly connected to people and the surrounding environment.
