    Description

    Hi we are in Poland
    Our natural straw bale house is in the middle of a forest with Moose, wild boar, dear, foxes, rabbits, pheasant, mushrooms, many wild berries and friendly neighbours. We are a Polish, Beata and English, John, couple. We are learning to live a healthy natural lifestyle in harmony and self sufficient with our local environment. Our passion is art, cooking, music, films, gardening, yoga and meditating. We live less than 40 minutes from Poland's capital Warsaw. Warsaw is a cosmopolitan, historic, cultural city with many interesting sites, restaurants, theatres. Having regular festivals of music, theatre, film and food. Close to us is the birthplace of Chopin where weekly free Chopin music concerts are held as well as in Warsaw. Our house is a continuous evolving project and we are wanting to develop a permaculture garden and build a natural, self sustainable pyramid earth ship house. We want to run learning workshops using these projects as practical examples.
