We are travelers who has a beautiful place and want to share it with other explorers of the world! We try to create a place for everyone who need to be closer to the nature in urban zone. We are searching for motivated creative people and families, who are not afraid to live a wild and rural natural life and ready to be involved in that kind of projects.
Anton (carpenter), Mona (ecologist) , Dea (our daughter, 5 years old) , Moly (labrador sweet dog) and friends : we grow different and interesting kind of natural vegetables, herbs and fruit trees. Trying to practice The Permaculture Principles, combined with the Biodynamic Calendar for the past 6 years .
We started in June 2013 with the purchase of a house with a 3 000 sq.m land, which has been abandoned for 15 years. Now we have more than 1 ha.
In our farm we only use fertilizers from our red Californian worms or our own compost .
We have chickens in a Geodome coup , they give us good eggs, and they work the soil in our special Mandala Garden.
We also have bee's families around, so we have honey and other bee's products for a healthy life.
We work mostly from early spring till late autumn. We don't have a fix schedule, it's flexible and depends on the weаther and the plants needs. Winter period we are closed, because we travel around world to see similar and interesting places like our.
We are on the way from Europe to Asia, so if you are on the road, we are the perfect stop!
