There has been no human intervention on this site for 8 years. There is now abundance of Nature! Currently, it is wild, impenetrable thickets, but behind it hides the "Summer Garden", a permaculture center and a sustainable homestead for people with disabilities.
Together with you we will learn and teach permaculture: how to organize habitation and everyday life of people with disabilities, how to zone the territory, how to create a forest garden, warm Rozum beds, suntraps, green rooms for rest, drop watering with raised tanks, how to protect water basins and to increase biodiversity.
This is the beginning of this story, and you have a unique opportunity to follow the creation of a permaculture center from scratch! On my native land in the village of Velyka Sevastianivka together with my son we will plan our territory. We already have our forest. What is left is to add a garden. Let's do it together!
