nested in the ecosystem of the Drawsko Lake District. We learn the Place where we live, its essence, its role in the region. We regenerate the ecosystem and serve the greater whole, enriching the vitality and culture of this Small Center of the World.

Gathering of Caring Ancestors

What we do:
We run a regenerative farm and a cultural and educational center.

We create an edible forest, garden and water retention system
We work physically, serving the community and regenerating the ecosystem.
We work closely with the immediate environment
individuals and organizations from the municipality, the district and the Drawsko Lake region. We are discovering our role in the bioregion of the Drava river basin.
We support the Polish and international community
