    Description

    Hi everyone!
    We are an international group of people currently located in Poland. We are trying to create a little island away from society, to focus on organic gardening, personal development and making this world a little bit better with our presence.
    We have a big garden where we grow different kinds of organic vegetables, fruit trees and berries. We try to follow nature and work in harmony with it. We apply companion planting and permaculture and are always open to new ideas. We have greenhouses for colder times and a small indoor "garden".
    We are trying to act in as many ways as we can; we have a lot of animals (dogs, cats, chickens, exotic birds, and fish) whom we rescued from terrible circumstances to give them the love and life they deserve, with lots of freedom, care and friendship. Every life is important and valuable to us, and we consider them our friends; that is why the place is strictly vegetarian, almost vegan, except for the fresh eggs our chickens provide.
    We try to protect the environment while also having a cool and comfortable life. We eat organic from our garden whenever we can, we have compost toilets, solar batteries, and we heat with wood in the winter.
    The group and the brotherhood are significant to us; the more, the merrier. We value diversity and freedom based on shared values of honour and dignity. We eat together, work together, play together. We like deep and meaningful conservations, board games, and music; we play instruments and love singing, dancing and being happy together.
    We are also dedicated to learning and improving both as a group and as individuals. We have lessons in martial arts, meditation, yoga, philosophy, psychology and languages, all for free.
    You can come at any time of the year, every season has its own beauty and unique atmosphere and activities, and we can always use some helping hands and a friendly heart.

We have come from different cultures with many different experiences and knowledge that we are happy to share. As I mentioned above, we are dedicated to learning and offering classes on various topics absolutely free of charge. If you have some skills that can be valuable to us, we are also happy to learn.

    Accommodation

    We have a big house and many bedrooms, most often you can get a single room, in case we have many people, we also have double rooms or even tents, but it is always discussed so everyone is feeling fine and happy. We have a shared kitchen where everything is at your disposal. Normally, we eat together as a family once a day and take turns cooking. The food is always vegan or vegetarian (we have rescued chickens and fresh eggs as a result), and we use as much of the production of our organic garden as we can.
