  • Description

    Description

    We are Shawn, Vesna, Dunja and Vuk Gupta who moved into Vesna's great grandmother's 100 year old mud house 5 years ago. Since then, we have renovated our house and the neighbour’s house (which we bought) with as many natural materials as possible - thatch, round wood, natural finishes, mud, straw and stone. Our vision is to start a children's center, focusing on theater, music, arts and crafts.

    In March/April we will be preparing our garden and applying a mud plaster to our greenhouse wall. We will also be building a natural swimming pond where plants clean the water. Beyond that work, everyday is dynamic and depending on what you like there is playing with children and taking care of animals - we have ducks, geese, chickens, goats, sheep and a dog.
