For those who would like to do their own thing, the project has 2 further pieces of land, not close to those described above, but approx 250 km away, up in the north-west of Bulgaria, on the south bank of the River Danube, about 8 km west of the town of Lom in the region of Montana.
to follow soon.
so far away from headquarters, an outpost there would only receive
occasional visits from the management.
About 15 minutes walk
from each other, the plots are:
- 23 dka (2,3 ha / 5,75 acres)
good agricultural land, recently cultivated, currently mainly grass,
with a section, c 3 dka (0,3 ha / 0,75 acre) of young fruit trees:
apricot and peach. The plot slopes gently towards the north so
there are extensive views of the Danube which is less than 200 m
away, and beyond to Romania.
You can comfortably walk down to the

Exchanges or rotations
could be made between base camp and this outpost, so those
interested could live in one environment one season or year, and then
move to the other, and then maybe back again - there are many
