  • Description


    I am 33 years old, since 7 years i am traveling mostly in the east asia, while i was travelling i had many ideas to create, and now want to build a place with those experiences, to create this place with friends, travellers and let them enjoy and rest in the forest of ida mountain, i have a land here 4000 sqmt, firstly i would love to build a wooden cabin to have solid base, than build natural fence with woods around (because there are a lots of goats around, if we don't have fence in the beginning we cannot grow any tree or veggie :) and simply make garden and make the fence around the garden will take a lots of energy and time and also it will divide the energy in the land, so after making the fence slowly slowly would love to make this land self sufficient like food forest, i want to build a geodesic dome for green house, also a tepee (to let people have their own spot and to be in the protected space for winter to have a fire space for a communal spot, and a yurt with similar idea as tepee, if anyone would like to contribute some of their time will be wonderful, than anytime in the future they could come here to rest and enjoy, wish to see you and thank you in advance
