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.

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.
ONF experts call for direct dialogue between citizens and authorities to facilitate family homesteads
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.
We are settled. We live permanently on our native land, in the family homestead. We will be glad to meet the like-minded people who want to find land for their Family Homestead, next to us, in the village or in the surrounding territory. Call, write, we always welcome good people!
Socio-economic development of rural territories by the formation and development of family homestead settlements
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 small plot of land, at least one hectare, 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, supporting good health, scientific innovation and social well-being. This report outlines the potential of family homesteads in Australia.
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.
A short but very rich program seems to have exploded ordinary European ideas about good production methods. We presented ancient technologies, where the soul is important. Scientists from communities where everything is done by machinery have long wondered how this works.
We create the microclimate ourselves. The most important thing is to see the meaning in all of this, to actually want to take steps to meet others, and to go ahead and begin. Only the one who walks will master the road!
I portray all my dreams in detail, and I feel them. I feel that they are already close. It remains only to open the door and they will break into my life.
From March 29 to April 1, another Circle of Family Homestead Settlements and the Extraordinary 7th Congress of Родная партия took place in Yaroslavl. The format was to have round tables on each of the agenda items, among which there were performances by amateur groups, individual authors, performers, and dances.
We planted lots of fruit trees, berry bushes (always a few more of those to finishing off planting), loosened several flower beds for flowers, made several permanent vegetable beds (we even had the first crops), and began to plant a hedge.
Representatives from 63 Family Homestead Settlements, from more than 50 regions of Russia gathered in Yaroslavl region. The desire for unity was the common thread in all speeches and thematic circles, and the discussions raised very important topics. The work was a basis for synchronising understanding of our entire movement’s strategic development, as a whole, and assembling the future image of our Homeland.
In this report, I want to show one day in the life of four children (I can be considered the fifth, because, spending time with them, I also fell into childhood). I met them in the field, rummaging in a haystack
The total number of participants was more than 220 people, and the hall could hardly accommodate everyone. We achieved our goal: delegates from forty-three regions conducted productive work, and formed the current priorities.
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 idea of the “Ringing Cedars” company is to unite goods made with love for nature, and businesses of Russian family homesteads. We support producers who live and create on Earth, reviving the traditions of our ancestors and creating their own. More and more, buyers appreciate the strength, quality and effect of such products.
The Russian president, leader of the ONF, Vladimir Putin, in his message to the Federal Assembly, directed all responsible people towards the further development of agriculture and rural areas. The head of state noted “how important it is for a person, for each family to have his own house, his home”.
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.
… The day will come when all fathers understand that it is they who must answer for the world in which their children live. The day will come when each will understand that before bringing a beloved child into the world, the world must be made happy. You, too, must think about the world in which your offspring will live….
Citizens should have the right to build houses on agricultural land that they own as property. This proposal was addressed by participants at the “Action Forum” of the All-Russian People’s Front (ONF): “Russia aspiring to the future”, as part of the theme “Territories of the Future: New Spaces”.
