  • Description


    Greetings, travellers!

    We are Bart, Anaji, Franek and Mila, family living on the north side of Poland, on beautiful meadow surrounded by woods. Since we found this place three years ago, we are settling up here and rising up edible forest garden using technics and methods of permaculture, natural farming, renewable energy sources and eco-building. In brief, our aim is to create paradise on earth.

    We called our place Trifle Nest, because our souls are birds-like. In the past we were travelling and living all over the Europe and Asia for years, until we found this place and decided to stay. Our son was born here under old apple tree, and douther in the backyard as well, so we already started growing roots. The time came to create a nest, an ancestral habitat, a sustainable farm.
    And life is like a trifle, lasting just a while, just a blink. Let's enjoy it, let's have fun. It depend on us, what flavor we will give to it :)

  • Accommodation


    We are looking for volunteers who are not affraid of living out of civilization. We live very close to nature, far away from urban noise and pollution, so accommodation conditions might be seen as rough and primitive - take it into consideration!

    5 meters long caravan is ready to accomodate or sleeping in your own tent (we have a tent to borrow in case).
    Two main meals during the day eathing together and some lunch between. We are almost vegans (eating our chicken's eggs), part of our diet consists of seasonal, wild edible plants. In warm season we often prepare food on bonfire.
    Simple compost toilet, solar-heated shower during warm season or bath in fire-heated bathtub outside. There is a forest river close by, refreshing baths recommended :)

    We live off-grid. There is no electricity, just solar panel capable to charge small devices. Laundry is possible at our friends place.
