I analysed 71 academic articles about family homesteads written between 2003 and 2018. Many articles drew parallels with the Western concept of “eco-village”, and emphasised the residents’ desire for self-improvement, social harmony and an environmentally-friendly way of life (Petrov 2008, Kulyasov 2009, Savitsky et al. 2011, Pavlov 2013, Arkhinova 2015, Mukhlykin 2015, Hall 2015, Nesterova […]
I appeal to you, readers of my books! Your ardent souls and hearts will help to perceive what I am saying and what is unsaid in this appeal. Your feelings and minds have already grown the sprouts of a beautiful future for Russia and the world.
The main idea of the Ringing Cedars books is to perfect our environment. Anastasia says and does everything around this central concept. We should cease destruction of the Earth and begin a great planetary project for perfection — a new civilisation of flourishing nature in agreement with the dream of our creator and eventually even better. Life is about Truth… Joy… Love…

“Family homestead” is a better and more accurate translation of родовое поместье (rodovoe pomestye) into English. Let me present my arguments. First, поместье is not an entirely new word. It has a historical meaning, similar to “homestead” (USA) and “estate” (UK), regarding an allotted plot of land to be developed by the recipient as a […]
In the mid 1990s, a new concept emerged in Russia for the arrangement of human settlements in rural territories. The family homestead idea allocates a plot of at least one hectare to each family household for the purpose of creating a dimension of love. Each family strives to perfect the environment within the boundaries of […]
Sounds of the Soul of Russia. These poems were written by readers of Volume 1 Anastasia, after its publication in 1995. Readers submitted their poetry directly to the author, and to the Anastasia Foundation.
In ancient times in Russia, the veche (вече) was conducted twice a year, at the spring and autumn equinox, or when there was urgent business to address. The elders (старейшины) from each village gathered together along with their helpers, not more than about five people from each village. There was no chief at this kind […]
What would you advise to those who really want to live in the settlement of “Radosvet”, but do not have the necessary funds?
Of course for a successful move, money is necessary. But it will appear only when your dream turns into a clear and measurable goal. In our world there are many opportunities to create capital.
Experiments show that plants retain a connection with their carers constantly, even at great distance, and probably instantaneously.
Ringing Cedars readers!Anastasiev!Family Homestead creators! You are invited to celebrate our new holiday, the Whole Earth Holiday, on 23 July 2019 together with us at Szasz Walker Family Homestead in Batlow, NSW. This new international holiday was invented together by Vladimir and Anastasia, first celebrated in Russia, and is ultimately destined to be a whole-Earth […]
Родовое поместе means family homestead, but not exactly. In Russian there are two words for family. Семья is the family in a small sense, the immediate family, like a nuclear family. Род is the family in a large sense, like one’s ancestry, family line, and connection to the Creator. To better understand the word Род, […]
There is good news on Earth but for the story that really satisfies, Westerners may need to look overseas. Thanks to the many people who are creating their family homesteads, preserving their oases of Love, there will be Good on the Earth!

It has never been so easy to get land. Every Russian citizen can get a free plot up to one hectare in the Far East. Far Eastern Hectare: live and work on your land.
Vladimir Megre: Good afternoon, friends. Right now we’re driving along the road in Bavaria, Germany. We decided to explore a little place with a campground where you can hold meetings. Remember I was saying it would be good to gather for a day or two, on the weekend, to communicate with each other. As you […]
Vladimir Megre: I spent three days in the taiga, as a result I wrote nine books. The release of the books themselves, people’s reaction to them, and changes to the world situation, she … predicted with absolute precision, right up to the presidential decrees. Until now, scientists have been arguing about who Anastasia is, putting […]

Megre predicts disarmament for April 2020. Dasha should appear on international television to tell the world about love, family homestead settlements, and how to awaken a new consciousness on the Earth.
25 new families joined during the year. In 2019 we will continue. We are not slowing down! There is still a lot to do, and we, of course, can handle it! We invite families wishing to create their family homestead! Join our friendly community!
A week ago a single voting day was held in all regions across the country. The 2018 election is over! This year, the FAMILY PARTY took part in the elections more than ever. Family Party candidates took part in municipal elections in 13 Russian regions. In total, the number of regions that announced their intention […]
How good it is, what happiness is it when, united by one dream, one mind, people have the opportunity to get together and create something beautiful together!
Meeting was held on Skype with seven participants.
The adoption of this initiative will improve the well-being of Russian families, solve housing problems, restore large cities and megacities, revive rural areas, strengthen Russia’s food security, and increase the birth rate. As a result of the meeting, the group will prepare formal proposals to develop family homestead settlements in Altai region.
I know that the path to conscious parenthood is not paved with rose petals — it is very difficult and thorny. But if you still decide on this path, you will decide to invest your precious time and attention in learning to negotiate with your own children – this will be the best gift for them for life!
In the Chelyabinsk region, there are already twelve family homestead settlements occupying a total area of 1670 hectares. As a rule, they are built on abandoned agricultural land overgrown with trees and shrubs, fields of old Soviet collective farms. Family homestead creators tidy them up, and using their own money build access roads, connect electricity, and work to restore the ecosystem.
More than 20,000 families throughout the country have chosen the family homestead path for themselves. In 60 regions, settlements of a new type have been created, providing for ecological management of the economy, creation of useful products, careful treatment of nature and the surrounding world. But due to the imperfection of the legislation, people face serious problems.
I can’t come here very often, but when I came this time to my homestead, I forgot about everything that’s happening with the party, the troubles… the troubles… everything is forgotten here, because you have so much to think about!
Some people think we should adopt a special law on family homesteads so that these issues can be settled. Others believe it’s enough simply to introduce the concept of the ‘Family Homestead’ into the current Land Code.
Ringing Cedars – Australia readers group
meeting via Skype was held
Sunday 29 July 2018 8am EST
In my school years, Vladimir Megre’s books “Ringing Cedars of Russia” became a part of my life. And then I began to dream of a family homestead and a happy future! The dream presented by the taiga hermit Anastasia inspires me in my creativity and guides me through life.
We, the Family Party, affirm that LOVE can be preserved forever in your own Family Homestead, on your native land.
The federal government recently introduced a Bill on the regulation of the creation and operation of Family Homesteads. The document is being finalised taking into account the wishes of regional administrations.
The state will most likely have to consolidate a legal status for these thousands of people who have organised their life in the countryside, and officially recognising this form of land management will remove many problems.
“The Ringing Cedars of Russia” is gaining in popularity in this region, where supporters create their so-called “homesteads” (or “estates”) in ecologically clean areas. But often these assets were built spontaneously, without formal agreement. For example, this eco-friendly enclave is built on agricultural land.
Родная партия of Sverdlovsk region took part in the “All-Russian Forest Planting Day” on 19 May. The day was organised by the regional government, the ONF, Forestry Department and others. Several hundred people gathered together and planted about 20,000 pine seedlings.
The crux of the family homestead idea is that each citizen of Russia should acquire a plot of land to build their own economy, where the family lives and grows. In essence, the family homestead is different from peasant farming, and therefore it needs its own legal framework.
In rural areas there are already about 400 new settlements consisting of family homesteads at different stages of development. They are being built by citizens who want to live closer to nature and develop their own eco-production.
This paper notes that the development of rural areas is a necessary for sustainable social and economic development in Russia and analyses the social and economic efficiency of family homestead settlements as a new way to revive rural territories.
A family homestead is a one-hectare plot of land that includes a house and a garden, a comfortable place for raising a family and for retiring in old age. It is a person’s homeland on Earth, promoting feelings of love between parents and children.
Friends, once again I want to appeal to everyone – to stop any attempts to split the party. Today, on the eve of legislative initiatives and elections, this is one of our main tasks. Victory in the elections will be ours. Thank you for attention.
The idea of arranging out-of-town, rural areas on the basis of the family homestead idea was generally perceived positively. Discussion and drafting began of the law “On Family Homesteads”.
The Vyazemsky estate is known from the books of V. Megre, the manor house in the chapter “The Eternal Garden”. At the end of planting 120 cedars and 200 oaks, Timosha said that it was the happiest day in his life.
Flowering plants and berries attract to the hedge the attention not only of birds, but also of neighbours, especially children, who can sniff flowers and blossoms as they run about, and treat themselves to the ripe fruits.
Vladimir moved to Rosi about five years ago, the largest family homestead settlement in Belarus. Apart from him, there are twenty families who live here all year round. “I think one day every Belarusian village will look like this, and it’s great! Our settlement is probably the village of the future. It should serve as an example to others.”
The real world effects of Megre’s books are measurable, documented, and significant. Economic scientists recognise their potential. Tens of thousands of people have actively begun to shape their lives around the books, with positive results. Perhaps most remarkably of all, a federal law to allocate free land was passed in 2016, though Megre predicted it in 2001.
The “Ringing Cedars of Russia” books are being published in 27 countries, with print runs in the millions, and they have been translated into 25 languages. People are continuing to read, dream, and bring their dreams to life.
Everyone searches for happiness. But they created it – for themselves and for us. Clean air and water for their children, fresh fruit, a garden and a forest. Their own piece of homeland, a dimension that heals and offers eternity. Forefathers are responsible for the world into which they bring children.
According to ЭСБЕ, a universal encyclopaedic dictionary, Поместье dates back to the Kiev period (9th – 13th century) and refers to land allocated by a sovereign, sometimes in mass allotments, for the use of free servants in return for past and future service.
This report introduces the concept of the family homestead, a one hectare allotment consisting of a dwelling, water source, mixed garden and forested area. Homesteads are small enough to tend by hand, large enough to feed a family, and are arranged together in settlements of 200 or more. The possibilities and limitations of family homesteads are discussed within the Australian context.
Access to land is necessary for the survival of our country. Anyone willing to grow their own future, take responsibility for the health of the land, and contribute a surplus to the wider economy should be hailed as a national hero. For in the 21st century, the homestead gardener is the new soldier of national security—feeding the country and keeping our economy safe from external instabilities.

Not long into the third millennium, the people of Australia experienced a great awakening, recognizing the futility of the technocratic path of development. A law was passed in Australia, coming from the Prime Minister himself, to allocate one hectare of land to any citizen who wanted to create their own family homestead. Politicians correctly believed […]
Global figures show a serious problem: our growing population is faced with dwindling resources. But despite dire predictions, there is a solution that will ensure our prosperity. Family homesteads are urgently needed to lay the stable foundations of a positive future.

This project would to help every Russian family have one hectare of land for free and for perpetuity. Family Homesteads are created in settlements of 10 – 200 families, with all the necessary infrastructure. All products created in Family Homesteads are without taxes.
Eighteen readers were in attendance, mostly from Australia. Our like-minded company enjoyed getting to know one another, sharing our experience of reading the books of Vladimir Megre, and discussing our future plans — most importantly, the creation of our own Family Homesteads here in Australia.
Why make so much hot air discussing the theoretical solutions to underemployment, climate change and the housing crisis when a possible solution is right here in front of us?
Let the land employ our people! Put carbon back into the soil! Grow plants to support ourselves, and sell their fruits to fund future development.
