A few words about the family:
We are a couple, Eszter is 33 Hungarian, im 30, Lukasz, from Poland. We decided to move out into nature to live simply, grow our food and be independent. To have little impact on nature, dont spend much money and learn more about nature. We are trying to establish a little eco community, houses. Next to us is a family, for 7 years already, and they welcomed us here. Over last year we build a cob roundhouse with reciprocal roof, got 2 goats, built them a stable and started a veggie garden. Next year will be more about growing food and being more self sustainable.
We have outside.
