Self Sufficiency

Why do we try to develop Self-Sufficiency?

Despite of the landscape character of this region, young people don´t carry on rearing animals, planting and harvesting plants. Rising the prices of the food, lowing its quality and loosing the work habits were the reasons for us to return back to the idea of self-sufficiency.

This Self-Suffieciency Program is primarily for the Oravian families in difficult social situation, (death of the husband/father of the family)

In this Program we focus on:

  • Starting rearing animals

  • Planting fruit trees

  • Getting to know, harvesting and using healing herbs

  • Cheap, healthy and delicious cooking and eating
