Activities & Shift

Country live true nature cycle
Every spring we start with new garden season. It means preparing seedlings, spreading and of course planting. We're introducing new plants in the food forest - we plan the trees and bushes planting.
We also prepare new beds in the permaculture garden.
In the summer we harvest fruit, vegetables and nuts. The vegetables and fruits which we cannot eat are preserved for winter.
In June and July we mow the meadow and collect hay which we use for mulching in the permaculture garden.
In September we prune the trees in the orchard.
We also collect and clean the seeds of different fruit and vegetables and store them in our seed bank.
On spring 2020 we're starting with poultry project. We want to adapt one of the buildings to a chicken house and build a chicken tractor.
Help is needed in the different activities depending on the part of the year.
