The Village will have a component part dedicated to production and selling, as well as an educational side, being a space open for visitors, where there will be craft demonstrations and workshops for children and adults.
Ion Georgescu, Project Manager, stated: „By this project, we create a new landmark on the map of Comana and Bucharest Metropolitan Area, showing at the same time that non-governmental organizations are able to carry on successful projects of sustainable economic development that value, by involving the community, both the beauty of the natural environment and the creativity of traditional crafts”.
