  • Description


    Hello! We are a nonsmoking family with smaller children. We are dealing with our children and all kinds of eco activities: my partner as a wood artisan and natural building professional and myself as herbal remedy seeker-user. We live in Hungary in a little hilly town on a lakeside, called Kustánszeg. Thanks to the children we learn by experience the teachings of nature and life. We believe in life’s beauty, complexity and creative forces. We use these qualities as mainstream in our projects.

    Currently we are looking for people interested in re-creating our garden based on the permaculture principles. We have prepared the soil in the autumn-winter (cover it and feed it) and in sporing we'll start shaping and planting where possible. We also do plenty of outside (physical) work: we deal with our animals, continue our mud and plastering -works in and outside. We welcome non-smoking, active, enthusiast and hard working people!

    (Fyi: Since 2017 we are rebuilding an old house in a natural manner. We created an eco-hybrid home and system and we'll add to it an earthship terrace. This is a complete transformation of a typical town-brick house from old and/or natural and/or reused-recreated materials and eco-construction techniques.)

    We welcome you to join us in this creation!

    Thank you!

    Csilla and family
