    Surrounded by the hilly forest of Fruška gora and close to the city of Novi Sad, Serbia, our project is an intentional community in its beginnings!

    We are a family-based group of 6 people of different ages + 2 little boys + 3 dogs & 2 cats, who live and work together, with the goal of establishing an eco-friendly, sustainable intentional community that focuses on the organisation of the events - in the areas of eco-tourism, art and culture, kid and adult non-formal education, permaculture, & promotion of mental and physical health.

    We are currently on our PHASE II of the project :
    Creating necessary infrastructure of the place, for the Eco-based bed&breakfast (room in the roof, little restaurant), and developing rich program that will bring diverse experiences to our guests, participants of our programs and volunteers.
