    Description

    Hi! I am Tom. After six years living in London, I moved back to Estonia to start my eco project in Häädemeeste (south-western corner of Estonia).

    This land belong to my father who sadly passed away 2017 but I feel privileged and lucky that he believed in me enough to pass the responsibility and potential onto me. With ownership of this land being traced back to my great grandfather who built his farmhouse here in 1920, I understandably have an overwhelming connection to the land and making this succeed. It is this connection with the land and nature coupled with the incessant bustle of London that encouraged me to reflect and become flexi-vegan/vegetarian as I like to know what I am eating.

    My mission is not to promote relocating to the countryside, but only to protect nature and make your carbon footprint smaller on this planet through consuming less, shopping smarter, recycling and reuse where we can. This is echoed with my philosophy of taking care of your body and quietening your mind ultimately enhancing our abilities to truly feel and listen.

    Location is beautiful, it is only 100m from the sea and there are so much nature close by to explore (Tolkuse bog, Kabli Bird Station, Nigula Nature Reserv etc).

    As I am a beginner living in the countryside your help and advice is much appreciated.
    I am looking for motivated people who has previous experience.

    I speak fluent English and Estonian.
