  • Description

    Description

    Welcome!! You are entering into a third generation family home, This house has become an informal cultural space comprised of musicians and custodians of the soil. A house in continuous activity, where work in the countryside, spiritual path and music proceed together. We have two hungarian horses, three hens, three cats and a family of bees living with us. We cultivate a vegetable garden, which we water with rainwater that is now also conveyed into a bathing pond. Last year we built a compost toilet and soon we will build an earth oven. We are working the land for house consumption with regenerative farming methods. Our vision is toward authonomy and economy of gift. We produce fermented beverages, agricultural ferments and cleaning products for the house. At certain times of the year we organize house concerts and musical workshops for children and adults. We are looking for help in the garden, in the vegetable garden and around the pond, as well as some plumbing, electrical and masonry tasks. We nedd also help to clean the house and to spend your time with a 5 years old child.
