Tek Tataja

A project to organize an organic farm is in a startup. A way to preserve its tradition, culture and continuity by following early steps in this type of culture.
Our philosophy is to connect power with each other so that the earth evolves in parallel with us.
A way to inspire young people in local community life by joining biological life and joining power in its production, to preserve human values and respect for the earth.
"Tek Tataja" is the nickname of the grandmother who lived in this house all her life, as a sign of sacrifice for the preservation of heritage and the value of the land, it got her name.
The farm has an extension of 1.5 ha. The orchard is considered as the base of production, olives and olive oil. There are also different types of fruits such as figs, grapes, pomegranates, pears, plums, apricots, apples, almonds, walnuts, hazelnuts, quinces, dates, mulberries, medlars, oranges, mandarins, lemons, berries, flowers, spices and various vegetables.

I am a visionary for the earth, the environment and the community, this inspires me in new initiatives. Graduate in Geological Engineering. I have about 10 years of experience in service, tourism and hospitality. Two years ago I have experimented with planting organically in sand in difficult climatic conditions and life is going on. Art, music, sports, hiking, the beach, sailing, traveling and planting are my passions. I like community life, sharing, teaching, learning new things and DIY. We will have the opportunity to get dirty our hands in earth and feel the energy that spreads to our souls, while to clean the mind we will organize a trip. The staff consists of foreign volunteers. Feel free and flexible to communicate about anything.

Vendim is a great host. Unfortunately I only spent a few days due to family emergency but in those few days I felt accepted and connected to nature. I would definitely recommend Vendim house because you experience a different spell that albania provides.

Vladimir is a hard worker, with a spirit of creativity, motivated and inspired. His skills and energy helped me a lot in my project. We made the composting box and planted bamboo. Unfortunately his stay was short due to a family emergency, but I will classify it as one of the best experiences. Thank you for your contribution and for being a part of the project Tek Tataja.
