    I'm Marjan born 1978 in Pancevo.
    from 2002 had wing chun kung fu club, did hatha yoga, capoeira, doing camping in nature of serbia.. from 2014 we have our own eco camp and working on it .

    We are vegeterians\vegans
    no alcohol,no smoking,no drugs.. (no smoking marihuana)

    we are happy if someone wants to come and be a tourist like no food and no work .,.. just guest :)
    Also we are gratefull if somebody is willing to help with food for themselfs and help in work <3

    If all is good we can have more volontiers so its good if you come with friends thats ok and good :)
    its good if you have your own tent(if our places are full) just check and will see current situation :)

    1. How much time is expected and the details of the tasks you need help with
    Depends.. 3-5 hours would be nice.. but in your own speed.. we all learn and do hove much we can,but not every day is the same,there are days we work less or more..
    there is no "must"
    some time its better to work less with more will than more if there is no wish in it..

    2. How many meals and food will happen
    usually we eat fruits for breakfast ,for lunch do some cooking (beens,rise,potato,etc) with vegetables.. and for evening maybe fruit, maybe salad, maybe cooking of lunch ...
    we can see other ways to...

    3. Internet/Phone rules
    Finaly we have wifi in camp , its for messages. Please not youtube etc.
    And personals mobile phone
    internet tru android i phone is also not expensive but we finaly got wifi :)


    4. Public transport info
    Sesalac is by the town SOKO BANJA you geth taksi for around 1200dinar(10 euros) to get you in sesalac to the Sesalac cave. We recomend fica taxi 063426506.
    Look maps.
    If we have somebody with car we could send because it would be cheeper.so check us with message.

    5. Things to see and do locally
    Its just beautiful,lake,cave,rock formation with beautiful view,if worm we can some day go to the waterfalls on the river,nice forest we have,
    Also interesanting may be that we have photovoltiac sistem,we build with mud and straw,wood, we do organic garden etc.. :)

    6. Can you accommodate families/children/animals?
    tents yours,or ours, now have 3 bungalows so there is 1for4 people and two for 2people. And 1 tree house it can take 3 people, so family yes but if you ok with camping conditions.. we are ok with children if you are ok with camping we are also camping..
    we have cat,cat is god :) no dog attack cat.. if thats can be done we are ok with dogs,we like dogs,but dogs don't chase mouse so the cat must be safe. .. or mouses eat us alive :)
    (actually mouses are nice,but there be too many of them.and that is no good for food and kitchen.)

    "We are an association from Serbia. Our project started tree years ago. It has been presented several times on different national TV channels. Our group currently has more than 10,000 followers.

    we are vegetarians and vegans,non smoking,no alcohol,no drugs,no bad words ...
    we are not political,no rase,no nations oriented

    Some of us are athletes, most of our members have various hobbies and crafts interests. That is why we want to build a big Eco Free Energy Camp, for our research activities and active holidays, where we would organise seminars at the Camp. We want to demonstrate and teach our guests how they can live and work on their own.

    My name is Marjan, I am a founder of this group, and a fan of the earthship and off grid living. I used to dream about real off grid, self sustaining homes for all mankind .... I have studied about it for 15 years.
    we believe that everybody should have the right to:

    1. Sufficient, inexpensive available living space 2. The use of free or cheap energy 3. Clean drinking water 4. Organic, not chemically treated food 5. Food forests, that can feed all 6. Planting medical herbs 7. Humane treatment of animals 8. Nature conservation.

    We started by buying some land,
    Our property is in the famous tourist region, in the mountain village Seselac, near the town Soko Banja (Soko Spa) in Serbia. Just a 5 minute walk from us is the Seselac’s Cave, and 7 minutes away is the Sesalac Lake(small lake with drinking water in it).

    The project is in its beginning.. if you have a tent and sleeping bag its good. we expect to build bungalows for sleeping thats one of are first goals in this year.

    some tents we have and 3 bungalows,so contact first that we can say is there place.. we expect to build and that the space for sleeping will be no problem. if you have a tent than no problem.

    Internet ower android fon for now. so i hope you have yours...
    Testing lap top usb flash
    Also hope that we will found some lap top so than there will be internet acces,for now.. not yet.

    we are mostly in building the center, garden, rooms for winter etc.. But also we do practise yoga,kung fu, art work ,dance etc...

    the place is full of beautiful nature...
    Welcome
