In Vojnić you can visit the permaculture campsite and join this workshop how to pick up, dry and process herbs for medicinal use, make a herbal tea, a tincture and a herbal oil. You will learn how to recognise herbs and what parts to use and about their healing aspects.

Bogata Šuma (Rich Forest) is a permaculture family homestead on the top of a hill in the forest area of Vojnić, central Croatia. It is situated in Živković Kosa, only 35 minutes from the highway or 10 minutes from the Road 1 Karlovac-Split.
Not only oneday-workshops, in Bogata Šuma it is possible to rent the venue for your own events or retreats (up to 30 people under roof or even more with spaces outdoors). Quiet and private little campsite gives the opportunity to camp or to take a break on your trip to the Croatian coast. All accommodations can be combined with organic meals, freshly prepared in Bogata Šuma.
Barbara Scheltus moved from Netherlands to Croatia in 2009, starting with her family a permaculture project on a 12 hectares of land that became an edible, sustainable and regenerative landscape. She did permaculture design courses with permaculture teachers Rosemary Morrow, Mark Shepard, Rakesh, Taco Blom, Peter Cow and Looby Macnamara.
During your stay and workshop you´ll be able to see some projects Barbara designed and developed in Bogata Šuma: kitchen garden (“vegetable park”) that produces vegetables all year round, an edible fence, a “food savannah” (that eventually will grow into a forest garden) aswell many more interesting creations.
Included: workshop, tea, 25 gr of your own picked herb
