    This summer (2018) we will be preparing the old house, that we bought for the project by repairing it and building the center itself. The work will involve building and preparing the garden.
    Here are some of the tasks that will be done:
    1. Removing the old roof and stabilizing the walls. Heaviest jobs will be done by proffesionals.
    2. Preparing the garden - cleaning, setting landscape
    3. Repairing the old stone walls.
    4. Many more small tasks around the yard and also work with wooden structures.
