In 2006 locals and participants of a camp organized by the Community for Life in Harmony repaired three of Zajezova’s bus stops – one was built new from wood, the others were painted. Volunteers from Sekier and parents of future pupils of the Zajezova school also built a children playground in front of the school. During another „brigada“, ornamental trees and shrubs were planted in the centre of Zajezova. In 2012 the local inhabitant Lenka Andova initiated another project in which a sign post on Zajezova’s crossroad was installed.
There are several enthusiasts in Zajezova who are trying and record memories of Zajezova’s original inhabitants and preserve them for future generations. Together with the local children they visited several elderly people. Their testimonies were recorded and processed into a 40minutes long film by professional film makers who also live in Zajezova. Apart from that, several short videos were created. Some of the interviews were published in the local newspaper NAOZAJ and are as well published on this website.
Zajezova is an agricultural region, but due to its location it has traditionally been focusing on animal husbandry. However, cattle, sheep or goats are kept only by a couple of families, most of them belonging to the original inhabitants. Families who don’t keep animals buy products from them and thus support the local economy. Almost every family here has a bigger or smaller garden and orchard which provides a part of their food. The families then trade, sell or give away surplus of garden produce and seeds among each other
The forest kindergarden was established in 2011 as the first of its kind in Slovakia. It came into being thanks to the tradition of regular and non-regular activities for pre-school children which are part of the local social life since the number of youngest inhabitants started to grow.
Brana (The Gate) is a natural area of about 5 ha located on one of the Javorie mountains ridges, 900 m above sea level. A tiny community of its inhabitants practices conscious living, co-creativity and cares about its relations to all life forms. Together we focus on energetic healing, rituals and ceremonies, natural building and permacultural gardening, arts, crafts and art therapies. Our goal is to be open to learn about Life on Earth as such.
