Miroslav Kašiak (Mirec) sa prisťahoval do Zaježovej od roku 1996, po ukončení štúdia informatiky v Bratislave. V ekokomunite Sekier a v recyklačnom stredisku v Pliešovciach strávil 2 roky civilnej služby. Ďalšie tri roky žil v Zaježovej „na polovičný úväzok“, keď pobyt na Sekieri striedal s prácou v iných častiach Slovenska a v zahraničí alebo cestovaním. V roku 2001 si spolu s manželkou, s ktorou sa spoznal rok predtým na Sekieri, kúpili vlastný dom na odľahlom laze Častobrezie, kde zotrvali 7 rokov. Od roku 2008 býva s rodinou, ktorá sa medzitým rozrástla o 4 deti, v novopostavenom dome zo slamených balíkov na laze Podsekier. Od svojho príchodu do Zaježovej spolupracoval s miestnym občianskym združením Pospolitosť pre harmonický život (PHŽ) - najprv ako dobrovoľník, neskôr ako koordinátor projektov a od roku 2010 do roku 2016 toto občianske združenie viedol. Popritom sa venoval aj rôznym iným zárobkovým a nezárobkovým aktivitám - stavebným prácam (najmä peciarstvo), konzultáciám (predovšetkým v oblasti prírodného staviteľstva), ťažbe a obchodovaniu s alternatívnymi menami (Bitcoin a pod.), sprevádzaniu exkurzií, prednášaniu, či tvorbe web stránok. V súčasnosti je zamestnaný ako softvérový vývojár.

Original inhabitants of Zaježová

Population of Zaježová was 600 people in 1950s. Currently it is 200, and many new inhabitants came just recently. Original inhabitants, newcomers, people in rented houses, weekend visitors - all of them are mixed geographically. There is big diversity between newcomers, but there is also big diversity between original inhabitants. But most of them are older people closely tied to this place and lifestyle of their ancestors. They keep livestock, fields, agricultural machinery and work till very high age. Cooperation between newcomers and original inhabitants is mutually beneficial.

Common work of children and their parents while preparing firewood for school. This the way how to not only save some money, but also how to show children what is behind energy they use - how it is produced locally and how much work does it cost (not so much if we work together and have fun ;)  Pictures: Soňa Sadloňová - Sonasfoto

Third stage of renovation of Educational Centre Zaježová (2008-2013)

Educational Centre in Zaježová serves as a base for workshops and seminars since early 1990s. The building was continuosly renovated but biggest changes had happen  when local NGO Pospolitosť pre harmonický život invited for cooperation big nation-wide operating NGO Živica. They managed to get financial resources from different donors (Norway grants, UNDP, Swiss grants, EU crossborder cooperation with Hungary etc.). Thanks to this they could make rooms for accommodation and workshops, toilets, showers, new roof-cover, building insulation etc.
