Dabrowka

Dabrowka

Our community has been building up slowly since 1976 and found its home in seven villages in south-eastern Poland near the town of Lublin - so it is not really one eco-village, but a co-operative project of units spread over the countryside. With time the presence of the newcomers was accepted by the local villagers and we have a close relationship based on mutual respect which is very important to us and one of the reasons for being here. After 20 years of existence we are about 100 people in 25 families in our community.

Natural Health Center - NatTech

centro de tecnologia natural - centena

I remain living at George Orwell’s animal farm.I think sometimes that I feel as the donkey, and otherwise I am the parrot. As my name is lorenzo and in Spanish loro is parrot, so I confirm my own suspicious focus. So I live in front of the water spring in the ceiling of the forest, the dossal, canopy or forest ceiling. My mates are tree copes: the vicious and luxurious mango, that far old as mine, does not work, and consider an offense if some one think about (I cut them). The hearted leaf of the urticacea’s with his glasses, wet and soft flowers, as delightful delicatessen for birds.
