My name is Gicu Vasilache and I am from Matca City, where the greatest agricultural project in Romania was developed. I come from an Adventist family where gardening and greenhouse production have
been the tradition for generations. I was raised working the soil from my childhood, and for decades I have sustained my family from my own farm. I have more than 30 years’ experience in the cultivation and management of greenhouses and fields. In the last 13 years, I have been the Agriculturist at Herghelia LifeStyle Center and have also been vice principle and Agriculture instructor at the Herghelia Mission School. I combine theoretical study with practical and spiritual applications, offering to the students a balanced and complete education. Over the years, lots of students have helped me in my agricultural work. They had the opportunity to see and to be involved in all the necessary steps, from preparing the soil till harvest. These activities are ongoing, and whoever is interested in learning the art of gardening is welcome to be part of this project.
