Program Details

Since 1998 I have been creating various pieces of art using different crafts (furniture, jewellery, toys, sculptures) on the land of my parents. From the early 2000's until 2012 I managed a co-op whose function was to promote the activities of its members (making furniture from tree trunks, herbal products, creative workshops, working action - festivals, green purges, etc.). Since that time I have been living as much as possible in self-sufficient manner.

Accommodation is simple with a few separate rooms in the house, and if the weather allows it, there is a possibility to set up a tent.


Activities & Shift

I will also gladly and happily host you if you are willing and ready to try to experience a self sustaining lifestyle and raw vegan diet. A raw vegan diet means that we only eat fruit, vegetables, nuts and seeds that are uncooked. Therefore in my kitchen I do not have any facilities for cooking food, however if you feel like something warm, you can make hot tea on the wood stove. I usually visit the green market a couple of times a week to make sure we have plenty of fruits and vegetables to eat. I also go to the old well in the village to collect spring water for drinking. You should also be aware that a raw vegan diet also puts your body through a detox process.If you would like to do something good for your body and your health, than this would be a great opportunity for you.. In this case, I recommend you stay for one month to go through the detox process.
