Eco-community Sekier

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.

Zajezka School

The original primary school of Zajezova was closed down in 1977. In 2007 a group of locals reopened the school as a one-class school for grades 1-4. It is one of Slovakia’s smallest schools, counting 14 pupils in the school year 2014/2015. The small amount of pupils gives it a cozy family atmosphere but also a form of education that is adjusted to the needs of the individual pupils. This form of work however is very demanding on the teacher, therefore she has support from the pupils‘ parents when teaching several subjects, like English, PE, Informatics and arts.

Our goal is to be open to learn about Life on Earth as such.
