Friends, hello everyone! In May 2021, we participated in the Mill volunteer program. I will try to briefly tell you how it was and what kind of place this is. How to participate: find on Instagram, fill out an application and wait for confirmation. The guys answered me fairly quickly, despite the fact that I came with a dog and asked a lot of questions. What kind of place is this: a former farm (?) where grain was once ground, which is constantly developing and hosting new creative projects on its territory. How to get there: train to Tarusskaya station (from Kurskaya) ~2.5 hours ticket about 300 rubles + 10 minutes by taxi from the station to Melnitsa Why go: Firstly, any volunteer activity involves help: hands, feet, talent, creativity. Everything you are willing to share! The balance is maintained due to a very warm welcome, absolute empathy, where everyone is equal and, of course, the beauty of nature and fresh air very well fills and gives the opportunity to “overload.” Meet new people, learn new super delicious recipes from the magical Olya, discuss the solar panel system with Sergei, or enjoy the grace of horses, live in a cube house, lie in a hammock. What to take with you: personal hygiene items, sleeping bag (if the weather is so-so), air mattress, rubber boots. This place is absolutely worth visiting and immersing yourself in. I sincerely wish to all the entire family who lives in the Mill that their three-leaf clover blossoms and blooms! We will be happy to come again next year.
A very original and tastefully decorated eco-friendly place. Friendly hospitable hosts
A very good place with pleasant hosts, thanks to them it has its own atmosphere, you can say its soul. Amazing breakfasts made from farm products. The room itself is made in the loft style, but somehow not very intrusive. The feeling that you are somewhere in Europe.
Fully corresponds to the category 1 star. The price / quality ratio struck, if not pissed off. Dirty, unsanitary conditions, lack of basic conditions. More than uncomfortable. Completely unfinished conceptual project. It has nothing to do with art space. Is that the cowards of the owners drying in a conspicuous place. It is very clear that the hosts are specialists in media communications and have no experience in hospitality. Clearly people in this temporary.
Curious place. It is a pity that it has fallen into disrepair and it looks like it will “end” quite soon.
