We’re Mariya and Liam, and we’re parents to a precious little 10 month old. We’ve also recently been gifted a nice little bit of woodland not far from the capital and near the town of Zemen.
We are looking for similar, young, like-minded families to either share and develop our land with, or there is also a lot of opportunity to buy land and properties in need of renovation for low prices nearby and we could help with this. It would be great if you also had young children or are planning a family soon as we are imagining a little community where our children grow and learn together in a creative, explorative, non-standardised way and to learn skills that are actually necessary and useful to lead a full-filling life. We don’t have very extreme views, but realise that the world needs a different direction to the one it’s been going in and have come to believe that the way forward is small sustainable communities.
We are still very much at the beginning stages of everything, we have the land but work needs to be done. We also welcome people who would like to just come and help out where possible. One thing we’re quite interested in and still looking into is building with cob, so if you’ve got experience with this and would like to help in exchange for something we can offer, or if you are interested in learning together with us and getting some hands on experience we would love to hear from you. We are planning to use recycled and natural materials as much as possible.
The area is really very beautiful, views to meadows and mountains, close to a gorge, waterfalls, a monastery and a lovely lake with more beautiful views. Bulgaria is a vibrant country with colourful traditions and you’re never far from a mountain. The locals are friendly and hospitable, although some can be harsh but it just takes some getting used to and can be quite comical.
So, that’s it in a nutshell… if you fancy dropping us a line and getting to know more about us and our plans then please do 🙂
