The area is famous for its monasteries (the 17th in our village, Manastir Bešenovo), magical woodland, protected flora and fauna, a wide variety of wild, edible mushrooms, magnetic fields, fresh water springs, wine, and hiking and biking routes. The area is also famous for being the birthplace of the most Roman Caesars!
We are a permaculture site with free-ranging chickens and Mangulica pigs. We also hold permaculture courses seasonally (see Events). We try to be as sustainable as possible. Our mission is to recycle, reuse, or repurpose as much waste/old material as we can. We try to learn from nature, rather than fight it. We try to eat less meat, and when we do, ensure it is ethically sourced.
