Locodeni

Locodeni village is situated southeastward from Odorheiu-Secuiesc in Homorod region, Harghita county.

The number of inhabitants of the village ,which was before  a prosperous township, considerably decreased at the beginning of this  century and it was populated mostly by elderly.

With the help of some committed german people it was established the Locodeni Youth Foundation whose main objective is to help young people who leave orphanages when they reach the age of 18.

The Locodeni Youth Village project has transformed into a support social network which provides work  for 65 disadvantaged young persons in sheltered workshops, as well as accommodation and camping possibilities in the village.

In frame of the project Traditional seeds – key to protecting biodiversity, in partnership with  Civitas Foundation for Social Society, Locodeni Youth Foundation established in Locodeni a demonstration garden and with its help the traditional seeds will be accessible again.
