    Description

    After a 4 years experience at my eco farm in old Jugoslavia, I would now like to try to build a new eco project with animals from chickens, geese, turkeys and donleys on the farm of a old friend. I self life in my gardenhouse southly of the ground. Much is already available. In addition, I would like to build and expand a garden that is fertilized purely ecologically. We are located on an old, not very wide road that is rarely used, are surrounded by forest, meadows and fields. The entire property is planted with trees of every kind. Despite the obstinacy of my friend, I would like to transform the farm more and more self-sufficient and profitable, but it requires persuasiveness that I can not reach alone. The farm is an hectare, which we mostly use as pastures. We have now chickens and my donkey, another I will buy, if the money is in the pocket.
    It needs now to build a fence, prepare the garden, repair the chicken- and donkeyhouse. The house at hisself have a cultural touch, my friend play piano very much and like to meet people and refresh his english.
