Permaculture Gardens

  • Marker details
  • DescriptionWe open up opportunities for you to gain practical skills, both in the creating of a Permaculture Centre and an ecovillage community.


    After 20 years of experience on permaculture site we moved to over 10ha land with forests and fields and beautiful landscape. We plan to create here educational Permaculture Cenre to open this place for more visitors and volunteers.

    Every year we organize a lot of workshops and till now once a year a big permaculture festival.

    We live in an old wooden house, but we plan to build few with organic architecture houses for us to live and guests. Our building plans are very wide: walipini, greenhouses, treehouses, common house, saunas, natural sweeming pool, compost toilets, solar showers, and many more..

    We plan to establish about 80ar permaculture garden and similar size forest garden. Our gardens in the same time ought to be productive and full of wilderness.
    We are creazy about seed saving, herbs, natural cosmetics, alternative medicine, music, movies, sustainability, biodiversity, organic architecture, natural way of life, simplicity, working with nature.
    We are located on east side of Poland – 35km from Lublin city. Soft landscape with hills, forests and meadows, clean and green. Super fresh air!
    There are many friendly neighbours and we live among community of artists, musicians, craftsmens from “L.A.S.”.

    Our diet is mostly based on our local products. We are vegetarians, almost vegans.

    Than if you have a passion in your blood and want to put your hands in good direction, you are the most welcome

  • Additional info
  • We moved to Podlodówek this year, 21-140 Michów.
    How to get here?
    Take a bus from Lublin, direction to Michów. The bus goes from central station, close to old city in Lublin and is going through Lubartów city. Sometimes is better to take a bus just to Lubartów and than try to catch the bus to Podlodówek village. But ask the driver if he goes to Michów first.
