  • Description


    I live with my family in a small village near lake Balaton.(14km) We have two smart boys. (5 and 2 years old) We are part of a community which started to build an ecovillage in this beautiful place. We have 3 small bio garden, and one bigger for the community. I work as a juggler, and have a little workshop to make fire juggling tools for professional performers. My wife has a felt workshop and do many different handcraft. She grows herbs and do natural medicine.

    In our land we have some goats and sheep, we make goat cheese every summer.
    In this year we start to build a cordwood sauna in our forest, and want to continue with same more natural tiny house.
    We live 4 years in a yurt with our family. Since we move in a house the yurt became free and became a guest house and the place for the volunteer workers.
    In our little village there are some stable where is possibility of horse riding. There is a small airport nearby where you can skydive. Lake Balaton is very close, you can go to chill down after the work.
