  • Description

    Description

    This is a quiet, peaceful landscape near Koprivnica; a self-sustaining farm that extends over four acres of land. It consists of a wooden house, one weekend object, forest, fields, orchards of Croatian antique sorts, fields of lavender and a BIO garden. In this environment I live with my five dogs (Rhodesion Ridgeback) and two pony horses. I am a trained cook for meatless cooking methods such as: macrobiotic, vegetarian, ayurvedic, natural cooking and raw food. I also work shiatshu and energy treatments on humans and animals and live in accordance with natural laws. You can learn something about our traditional food preparation or how to communicate and coexistence with animals. We can meditate together and share some experiences. All volunteers who live on meatless food and who do not consume alcohol, cigarettes and similar drugs are welcome. It is also very important that people who are coming to my farm are not afraid of dogs and that they are not nervous with bad energy because I live with five big dogs in a house who can feel that. I need responsible people who are willing to strictly follow the farm rules as I have put them into place for the safety of my dogs and volunteers.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Travellers will learn more about organic methods that are used on my property, they will learn how to breed plants, make products such as veggie food, tea etc. and they will learn about coexistence with nature. Through work they will work on their abilities and maybe find new ones. They will learn about meditation, new food and the perfect way to connect with nature. They will work but there will be also some time to relax like sitting around the fire, meditation, excercises and some trips.

    Throughout the whole year I have volunteers to assist me with work on and in the house: a green roof, thatched houses, work in the BIO garden, making wicker fence, construction of a natural swiming pool, cleaning the forest, working in the field of lavender, working in the orchard, decoration of an ethno house, picking and drying herbs, working with cultured bees and so on.

    Here you can live in harmony and get the life experiences of wild nature using only energy from natural resources such as well, windmill, solar cells etc. I will make you fall in love with nature.

    *️️️️*️️️️*️️️️Please note: I am located in the village of Reka, which is in the north near Hungary, NOT to be confused with the city of Rijeka, which is near the sea.

    I am looking forward to seeing you.

    All the best, Lela
