Hello everyone, I am Bambi, a member of Zemljani (in Our language: earthlings, made from earth) Zemljani is a NGO dedicated to promoting permaculture.

I would like to invite you to join me in our project called Laboratory of sustainability. Ive hosted 250 visitors so far from all over the world. The purpose of the project is to build and test sustainable practices. We want to answer to the ultimate question: What does it take to form a small, sustainable community in healthy habitat with happy people in harmony of plants, animals and humans?

Beautiful river Neretva is close by and we encourage a beach trip during the hot hours of the day during summer.

There is WiFi access on the property.

There is a dry compost toilet and an outdoor hot shower. Its heated by sun, so in the evening it`s a cold shower :)
