  • Description


    Hi, This is a garden where we live in harmony with nature and each other. We share the space with other people to experience the joy of simplicity. We host people, workshops and cultural events.

    We are an open group of 3-5 people (family members and friends) who are here more permanently, and others who join us for shorter periods. The atmosphere of the place is constantly changing in harmony with the people who are here to help, sometimes it’s quiet with few of us, sometimes it’s busy with friends coming and going, working and having fun. We have a summer kitchen where we cook mainly vegetarian meals that are supplied by our organic vegetable garden.

    The garden is an experiment for all of us, no chemicals and no rules to follow, but we are keen and love to do and learn. :)

    Just to mention

    Our place is at Révfülöp, a typical Hungarian “holiday village” on the northern side of Lake Balaton, 150 kms south-west of Budapest.

You can also join us meeting up with local friends, making food, music and the art of …being?
