Hey permies

I was one of these people 3 years ago and i would like to help others realise their dreams I have a farm in the south of hungary
And if some one told me what i knew now i could of saved half of my mony and time !
I am looking for extra hands on my farm and if you want to own your own farm thats ok to
almost everything here is for sale from 100 hectare to 1 hectare +- 1000 euro per hectare
and usualy a house with building permits are cheaper than ownly the agricultural land it self
I am starting to put in a food forrest and have plans to be water self suficiant
I just wan't more permaculture people around me
As it is now everybody is moving to the city or raping the land with tractors and pesticides
the infrastructure is already here old adobe farms with old grape fields and orchards only nobody to take care of them
if you wan't a permaculture farm that is already almost finished you need to go to south europe
the old farms are designed 2-3 genarations ago and everything already fits permaculture the house design to the field layout
I hope i can help some like minded people out there

Ps feel free to ask for more info i have tons of pictures on face book i cant upload anything here yet

Jonapot Baratom !

It is nice to read people not far from me do live their own permaculture way. Where exactly is your farm ? I am originaly from Poszoniy, ( Bratislava ) Slovakia and around here properties are darn expensive.
Therefor I think about moving somewhere else. Hungary is near that is cool. Also, I plan to go visit some farm in the spring soit comes to my mind, why not travel a bit around Hungary ? Look forward to hear from you, cheers
and szia.

Hiya Danny, well I am in a phase of getting inspiration and well, saving what I can to get some land. And i love visiting new places.
I know a bit of northen Hungary, but I would love to visit the south as well. Maybe in spring I would like to come visit for a few days,
help with some farmwork and get some info. Now please tell me more about your place, do you have a website ? Cheers

Yup, tried the link, but it is not working for some reason. Can You provide a different one ? Hey the plan is that I will figure out a plan someday
Not sooner tham April 2013 I suppose but in the sumer at latest. Being employed I have no vacation days left this year anyway. Tell me Danny some
details about yourself. How old are you and where do you come from ? Are you Hungarian or from somewhere else ? I am 27, born in Bratislava,
Slovakia, now living in Třinec, Czech Republic.

Hey scotos

I tryed the link it seems to work for me here is a nother one

http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.126288140757370.24231.100001285539376&type=3

As for me i am in the early stage of making a food forrest i am figuring out how to make my own windmill and some ponds
Oh yea i am 27 3 years ago i just bought a car and carevan with my last mony and drove it from holland to hungary to help some people on there farm
after a few months i found my own farm
You said Hey the plan is that I will figure out a plan someday Thats a little vaige if you wan't something you go for it 100 % the rest will follow
and others will help
I ask this becous i am curios are you going to keep working and save for your farm or buy the cheapest piece of land you can find and build one your self
Some body asked me once what would you do with a million euro and like a light bulb going on i could only think about working on a farm and getting out of the city my logic was i don't need a milion euros to be happy i can do it right now and i was right i ownly learned about permaculture a year ago
and that realy helped keep the mood coing not tryng to make big investments in mony crops just try to consume less and everything will be simpler
I am trying to say is there are much cheaper way's to live i lived in a carevan for a long time i stil have 2 of them you can buy 1 hectare for 1000 euro and just start

I hope you figure out a plan Szia

I'm living in CZ and have a natural house in progress and intentional community in the long run *maybe*... so it's interesting but for now would need help with planning what can go where and possible layout advice... or other things to fill in the 'potential'... a list of all the good intentions I have are here too >> dowhatyoulove.0id.org

Hi Danny,

I have bee drooling over land & old farm houses in (Western) Hungary for some time,
I am originally from Germany but was kinda 'nailed down' in the US for the past ten years.
The concern I couldn't get over was the language barrier.
Although I speak several European languages more or less fluently,
they are all of Romanic and Germanic origin, - no Eastern European language skills here,
and the Finno-Urgian Hungarian would really be the last I'd ever dare to set out to learn...

This seems to me a serious barrier to what I feel is crucial to self sufficient and sustainable living off the land:
healthy tight-knit neighborhood- & village-like connections with local people...
- What do you do about this? - Originally from Holland, Hungarian must be very very strange for you, too,
- or do you have Eastern European roots / parents... ?? ?

Your facebook links both don't work for me either.
This is what I see upon clicking on them:

>> This content is currently unavailable

>> The page you requested cannot be displayed right now.
>> It may be temporarily unavailable, the link you clicked on may have expired,
>> or you may not have permission to view this page.

>> Return home

Take care!

Gioia.
