We warmly welcome you to cocreate and express with us what comes from the soil of your mind.
That soil has been degraded in the same way that the topsoil of mother earth has been degraded. We work on solutions and find the answers in the forest we live in. As we speak, we look behind believes. Out of time, into art of living utopy, where magic be and and visions manifest reality. Step by step, from dreaming, to planning, from creation to celebration. In every moment with ease and peace, here and now, forever and ever.
Next to maintaining the conventional water flushing toilets we started with the paths to zero waste, to 'the iphoo native' for example, a compost toilet that is part of the rewilding station at the top of the land. There will also be chickens roaming around and maybe other animals too.. With that we extend a lifestyle that is beneficial for future life on earth and like to learn what we could do better each day, perhaps experience more motivation and integrate more aspects that we might be inspired with,
