Rural Lifestyle and Subsistence Farming: Ecovillage Meeting in Krishna Valley

How to build a community? How to plan a self-sufficient family homestead? How to establish contact with the existing ecovillage initiatives? How can a city dweller get organic produces from the land he owns, while at the same time support local villagers as well? How to manage 50 hectares of land, if someone wants to produce organic foodstuff? What are the actualities in Hungarian ecovillages?
Questions like the above and others were discussed during the 11th Winter Ecovillage Meeting in Somogyvámos a few weeks ago.

The photos, a video from Kapos TV and a few Pdf format of presentations (in Hungarian!) will show you some of the details.
