My name is Guram and everybody calls me Guga. In November 2019 my wife (Nutsa) and I decided to escape from the everyday city routine and moved from the capital of Georgia, Tbilisi, to the village Kurdghelauri, Kakheti (East Georgia). We bought a house with a small garden (1400 sq. m.) and on one hand started renovating our home ourselves and on the other hand began planning and designing our garden by the principles of Permaculture.
Almost every day we are thinking about new and exciting DIY and eco projects in order to make our home and garden stand out and to share to our visitors the happiness that we feel constantly since we moved here.
In our place we have dogs, cats, rabbits and ducks. Recently we dug the pond and soon we will add some fish in our garden. However, the pond has to be sealed and we would like to do it natural way (i.e. without liners or cement), we are still working on it... Other than this there are lots of things to do and we would love to have your ideas of garden design, DIY and artistic projects that we could make together with you.
Currently we are renovating the exterior and the second floor of the house where we would like to make a guesthouse.
