    We are a little community of a young family that recently both a farm and a young couple. The farm was abandoned for many years. Our vision is to create a warm home here, not just for us, but also for others. We wish that the farm is a creative polygon in different areas, for instance natural building, gardening, landscaping, herbs, education and how we can co-create/live in a simple and joyful way. We (Peter 38 years old, Prija 34 years old, Ines 27 years old, Ziga 35 years old ) lived in different communities in Slovenia before for more years and gathered a lot of experience. Peter is a creative builder that covers most of the ares in building, but lately is specialized in natural building and also loves to teach and be a mentor in that. He also loves to create with wood , but mostly doesnt find time for it. Prija is a social pedagog that works more on a group dynamic and work with people (created many youth exchanges, ect.), in her profession she is using art (circus, dance, ect.) as pedagogical tool. She also covers most of the gardening on the farm (permacultural way), loves to pick herbs, ect. She can also teach you the craft of macrame julery. Our daughter Zarja (2 years) is a happy, friendly, wild, strong little girl, that is very open to new people and would be happy to show you the farm with her playful eyes.

    Ines is a creative young women that loves music, dance and people. She loves to travel and meet people (she is our "little and jumper") visited a lot of eco/community places in Slovenian and abroad. She is particularly interested in community live.

    Ziga is more introvert but very warm young man that studied forestree and knows also a lot about wild plants. He loves woodcrafting and is often teaching how to make cutlery. Children and animal love him.

    And there is also Kela, our middle size dog, that also gets under the skin of most people. And 2 cats.

    The farm has 2 ha, plus 1,5 ha of forest. We have one garden and 1-2 fields. We grow a lot of vegetables . The farm is located under the mountain Pohorje (cc 650 m high) and its just on the edge of the forest with a beautiful open view on the whole valley. There are many hiking and biking trails near the farm and the thermal hot spring Zreče. There is also a 2-3 days hiking trail over Pohorje.

    We live in a little old farm house and a yurt, but in summer 2021 we will build a barn – mostly with the focus to be a community place (for who ever is on the property). Till then the volunteers will be in tends or yurt. In the warmer months we also want to organize workshops in sustainable way of life and adventure pedagogical camps for youth and children. We are also well connected to the whole Slovenian permacultural, eco-village scene and know many places/people.

    We eat mostly vegetables and milk products, but also meat (mostly local, ecological and outdoor animals). We live a simple life style, mostly outside. We have a car so we can pick you up from the bus/train station. We can also take you with us on our free days and trips with the car.

    We are happy if you decide to join us for a little or longer while and hope that we create something beautiful together!
