Pozývame Vás na ďalší ročník zaježovskej Letnej slávnosti na sekierskych lúkach. Bude v podobnom duchu ako predchádzajúce roky, takže tí, ktorí tu už boli, vedia, na čo sa môžu tešiť. Podrobný program nájdete v prílohe
New inhabitants of Zajezova valley and places in its close neighbourhood have brought new life into dying out small village. People join efforts to improve quality of life here, to prevent problems, which caused depolpulation in second half of 20th century. They organize common work on public projects (bus stop reparation, waste collection, tree planting, playground making etc.), informal parties and bigger seasonal celebrations, common holidays and weekend trips of families, local activism (nature protection, waste issues,...) and so on.
Sekier's Meadows festival is designed for those who relates to Zajezova. Everyone will find something for him or herself – youth, families with children, city people or nature lovers, philosophers and workers. It aims to be relaxed encounter of friends rather than event with splendid program. We shall get to know each other and enjoy the time spent together during the weekend.
The Eco-community Sekier is a traditional farm house on a meadow above Zajezova, bought in 1994 by the NGO Community for Life in Harmony (PHŽ). It is looking for an alternative to a meaningless consumerist lifestyle, inspired by the modest and self-sufficient life of our ancestors, but also by modern trends like permaculture, natural building and the eco-village movement.
In the years 1991-1995 the civic assotiation Natura was running a project called School of folk culture (SLK), which was situated in Zajezova-Podlysec. Its mission was to keep traditional folk culture alive, organizing weekend workshops and summer camps where experienced craftsmen and –women were passing on their skills to young people. Their relaxed and friendly atmosphere made SLK’s events popular and attracted not only young people.
In 1990, the building of the former village council in Zajezova remained unused after the abolishment of the municipality of Zajezova and its filing under the municipality of Pliešovce. For a certain time it was used as accommodation facility for people working at the recycling centre, however nowadays it has turned into a space for local communal activities.
The magazine NAOZAJ was initiated by a handful of people who try to present the life in Zajezova with words of the locals. It gives space for interviews with both newcomers and original inhabitants, reports, news, poetry and novels. The magazine’s content is created by volunteers, the profit from its retail are used entirely for costs connected with the layout and print. The magazine was issued twice a year and its editor-in-chief is Anka Valentyniova. After a two years‘ break we now prepare to publish new issues in colaboration with this website.
