                                                      Welcome to our new website!

Andrzej (Andrew), an artist, in recent years an eco-designer dedicated to the eco-village movement.  Monika, teacher and event planner, especially interested in alternative education.  Their daughter, Aura, a junior-high school student with artistic talents and a knack for bringing our friends together.

We live 16km from Lublin in a small village called Pryszczowa Gora, our green sanctuary, where we’ve been cultivating our Permaculture garden for the last 15 years or so.  There are more eco-famillies, fellow fugitives from big cities, in our area spread out throughout the neighbouring villages.  Together we have an eco association called “Dla Ziemi” (“For the Earth”) as well as an association of protectors of nature “Zielona Swoboda” (“Comfortably Green”).  As the beginnings of an eco-village we belong to G.E.N. – Global Eco-village Network.

Our objective is to promote healthy lifestyle choices, vegetarianism, an ethical and from-the-heart approach to nature and to the animals and people surrounding us.

Permaculture (derived from “permanenent” and “agriculture”) aims to revert back to cooperation with nature with the objective to create healthy, prosperous and biodiverse ecosystems.  The idea is to attain optimal self-sustainability, and to take full responsibility for the immediate area, environment and people.  We look to share our knowledge and enthusiasm for Permaculture through our workshops which are held at our place or elsewhere in a supportive environment.  We work on translating articles in this domain.  We readily diffuse methods for economic and healthy eco-construction (ex. using wood, straw bales, clay, earth etc.) as well as the implimentation of alternative and reusable energy sources.

We support a variety of world views and opinions.  We wish to work towards cooperation and team-work as opposed to competition.
