Thanks for checking out our profile.At the moment we are looking for people who can help preparing place for the winter.
We are also working on rebuilding an old warehouse (mainly from recycled materials) into a modern place for people to live and work. We are very much influenced by work of Michael Reynolds and his earthships. We are setting up our walls with car tires and beer cans. We would like to create a self-sufficient place by re-using the waste of modern consumer society, in the beautiful scenery of the Jizera Mountains.
Furthermore, volunteers work hand in hand with the locals, in order to make the foundation possible. We have hosted over 50 ; volunteers from Holland, England, Israel, Australia, Japan, Romania, Czech Republic, Germany, France, and USA . They helped with locale renovations. As much as 80% of building material utilized was of recycled origin. Today this space functions as a workshop, concert venue, and lively meeting place.
A variety of artistic activity is promoted here: up-and-coming graffiti artists are allowed access to walls, and we teach construction methods involving tires, glass bottles, cans, and other societal waste, as we demonstrate an ecologically-friendly lifestyle. We attempt to create conditions allowing for innovative creation, always keeping in mind the future, our children’s future, and the future of our children’s children.
Konstancja is also engaged in handicraft. She is working with natural fabrics, from silk, linen to felt, as well as silk-screen printing, weaves, dyes and paints. Frank is working with scrap metal as well as wood, stone, concrete etc.
