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 zverejníme pár týždňov pred akciou.
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.
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.
In this workshop we are going to rediscover traditional diets - food made by hand, not machines, food, that kept our ancestors healthy for generations. From friday evening till sunday noon we will be cooking, soaking, sprouting, roasting, baking and tasting traditional and nourishing food.
