EN: Our summer roads took us in Salaj county, in the Garden of the "Zmei", another magical place in our wonderful country.
EN: And we paired this great trip with a special event: "The Hemp day", which was a celebration of the plant that stood besides our ancestors for centuries, being their food, fiber source, construction material and cure for many diseases.
EN: Hemp has been the complete plant for the Romanian peasant and each household had a plantation and Romania has been for many years one of the world leaders in the cultivation and exportation of hemp products. Luckily, things are going back to their natural course and thanks to some ambitious people, hemp is coming back in the gardens.
EN: We took part with what we know best: archery and wood engraving workshops and we enjoyed the wonderful surroundings.
EN: Archery was the highlight and children where the most excited. The adults were impressed by the walnut wood arch, handmade by Valentin and were glad to find out that it's not that difficult to make your own.
EN: And of course we used the fret saw and the wood burning tool to bring to life the imagination of the beautiful and happy children who joined us.
