We are a growing community, living in the Lithuanian countryside. We are practicing sustainable living and natural building. And lately we are learning intensively about Cannabis sativa(hemp), Chamerion angustifolium(fireweed) and other common though very valuable plants around us.
Things done in the area so far:
-- 2 living houses are built using wood, straw and clay as main materials
-- there is 5 m diameter temporary dome where our hemp harvest was processed
-- a working wind turbine(for electricity)
-- solar water heater
-- one big and several small ponds
-- 2 little summer houses

In the area there also is:
> a modern diary farm
> an old old farm(200 years old wooden house, big barn and farmhouse) where we do some country side tourism activities and occasionally organize small sports events and competitions.

-- to build 2 domes using renewable materials(one would be for volunteers and community, another for hemp and other herbs workshops);
-- to rebuild one of the old structures;
-- totally change from diary farm income to production and services using plants
-- build a strong, friendly, trustworthy and peaceful community of locals and share the ideas with others

Our homestead is located in the Moletai region, about 55km from Vilnius, surrounded by forest and fields, many hills and streams, some lakes.
