UPDATE: 12th February 2020
Welcome to my profile :) The average reply time...I forgot to reply to an inquiry :D
I was inspired by Masanobu Fukuoka some 3 years ago and after having tried out different techniques in the last 2 years. I got to know that no-till also requires some kind of preparation (what I had not realized in the beginning). So we have to start preparing the plot for cover crops.
In spring/summer I grow here beans, peas, chick-peas, raspberries...
While the place gives you the opportunity to reflect deep about the world I won't use big words to describe it and give you directions on how you should feel here or what you should reach etc. What I do is basically work in the garden and let my thoughts roam freely. Nothing forceful. Because you are the closest to yoga when you are concentrated the most.
With the help of my father I've built a yurt in the field. The main purpose was to prove that you don't have to work all your life long after you've got a bank loan and a flat in a city. And still live a satisfied life as close to the nature as possible.
In the past I used to live in Sofia and a bit in Brno working for big companies, sitting all day long in front of a PC, talking with unhappy customers. Now I am living a layed back life in my father's home town of Fakia. And noticed BTW that here I even work more than in the big cities. But I can enjoy the work here :)
Cooking / shopping
If you are eager to I'd love to teach you Bulgarian folk dances/songs.
If you play an instrument I'd love to play together, me-clarinette and local folk music.
In the coming days I will need to start seeding of chickpeas and peas.
And to complete cleaning the garden from last year's weeds.
Self made Mongolian type yurt with toilet, bath and electrical heating.
In your spare time you can bike in the mountain, fish at the river. You can also visit Burgas-the fourth largest city is just 60 km away and accessible with public transport. There is a bus twice a day out of the village. I can also take you to the nearest town by car whenever you need that. In Burgas you can walk in the sea garden. In winter time you can't unfortunately enjoy the sea to its full extent.
