  • Description

    Description

    If you are into sustainable living, eco-friendly green building practices, and organic farming this is the right place.
    Our Family, Mariam, Buka, our happy doggo Sunshine, birds, hedgehogs, and frogs living around us welcome those who respect and miss being in nature, and have the desire to share our eco-friendly lifestyle.

    We live in the countryside at 30 km. away from Tbilisi. We have garden with fruits and vegetables.
    At the current time period, we are setting up our organic vegetable garden. Here you can learn about raised beds, composting, companion planting, natural plant-based fertilizers, and repellants in practice.

    Even though we are done with building our StrawBale House, we still do some improvements and try out different natural building techniques with existing resources at hand.
    You can study about natural building, earth and lime plastering and participate in all the experiments that we are always up to.
    All of the things in our place are built, designed and constructed by us within 3 years and it seems like a never-ending process of building and improving.
