Week for guests: week for the Sekier meadow

The meadow around the Sekier farm was created by our ancestors with a lot of hard work - they had to cut bushes and trees, pull out rocks and stones by hand, plow and level the terrain, in order to create a piece of land that can serve as a field to grow crops and fodder on. Nowadays the meadow mainly serves as pasture for our horses, goats and sheep, and also it's venue to our summer festival.

Permaculture earthworks hands-on: Keypoint dams

Come to see how we can develop landscape in a permacultural way by catching water in the landscape's keypoints, build dams and ponds that may serve as biotopes, swimming pools, to raise fish or accumulate warmth and create a milder climate.

During this week, we will have a big digging machine to dig and move earth, but we will need to shape the edges by hand and we will need to build clay dams with compressor tools and showels.  We will also save and replant natural pond vegetation and amphibes, so we need many hands to create this beautiful new element on our Sekier meadow.

Scything course

You can cut grass in many different ways - in former times farmers were able to manage many hektares of meadow entirely by hand, nowadays however people even with just a small garden prefer to run after a lawn mower, because they think scything with a scythe is too strenious. Using a scythe correctly is an art that can be learned and  done correctly it is not strenious but a delightful exercise, a meditation, something close to tai-chi.
