We are finally in the last stage before buying a beautiful property with views on the mountains in a quite yet well connected place of south-west Poland, very close to Czech Republic (2hrs Prague) and Germany (2 hrs Dresden, 3 hrs Berlin). The property is designed for 5 families, each will have private ownership to one of the buildable plots (1500-2500 m2) and the right to access to the non-buildable part of the property (meadows, stream, forest), altogether 25 ha. The property is adjacent to an artistic village called Kopaniec, where there are German, Dutch, British and even Australians living. We are especially seeking families with small kids, as we have an on-site forest kindergarten and school running since 2 years (the school we would like to turn to bilingual English-Polish).
I am a Canadian of Polish descent on both sides. My father was born here of Polish expats about 14 years after WWII, and my mother was born in Poland but came over with her family in 1966.
I am really glad to hear that permaculture is happening in the land of my ancestors, and I wish you all the best.
Please keep us posted. More pictures would be greatly appreciated. Let us know how it goes, and good luck!
