  • Descrição


    Greetings from Adam, Erika, Saulyte and Sofija from the beautiful far north of Lithuania!

    We are building tribe from our regenerative permaculture farm in our small Lithuanian village. During all seasons we enjoy hosting people from all over the world, everyone is welcome to join.

    Adam is from Australia, he is very passionate about ancient wisdom, he always has some interesting stories to tell.

    He loves gardening, crafting herbal medicines and is a living library about medicinal mushrooms. Adam always enjoys having fire by the river with good company alongside deep conversations. He is very hard working, and his head is always full of ideas for which he usually needs a hand.

    Erika is from Lithuania and she loves her home country, her lands and traditions, she is the one who can also teach you some Lithuanian.

    Most of the time she is looking after her daughter. She loves cooking nourishing meals as she is very passionate about ancient diet, and she spends a lot of time in the garden. Her interests revolve around growing food, foraging herbs, making natural medicines, natural parenting, arts and crafts.

    Saulyte is our daughter, she makes the farm a fun and alive atmosphere, she is truly hilarious. I think she would definitely enjoy having more kids around.

    Bella is our dog and she is super friendly, she has a little community built up here with neighbours dogs which is really fun to observe.

    Here we grow our own food using permaculture principles. We forage herbs, dry them and make tinctures and various balms. In autumn we love going mushroom picking since we live not far from the forest. We respect Nature and we expect the same from people who live alongside us.

    OUR MINIMUM STAY IS 7 DAYS - We find that this is the bare most minimal requirement to give people a taste of what permaculture is ultimately about.

    Our garden includes 46 x 20 m garden beds and multiple greenhouses. We usually need a hand in this area though we always have some fun projects happening such as planting trees, foraging, natural building, cooking, babysitting, making hot compost, seeding, transplanting, doing art among other activities.

    We follow the rules of nature in our garden. Our teacher is nature and we follow the natural processes. We focus on highly intensive soil quality because that is the foundation of growing your own food.
    We do not use any pesticides or herbicides.

    Our farm style is finding long term solutions for problems which does not mean fast solutions which is usually simple as is nature. Our main focus is to have a large biodiversity of microorganisms in our soil, because that is the food for the plants.

    Working with the soil for us is true alchemy.

    This is a zero alcohol policy farm. 🌱
