We work every day on one of the houses in Tésenfa or Szaporca. Both villages are in South Hungary, one of the most disadvantaged region in the country. People are poor, there is no opportunity to work around here. Szaporca and Tésenfa also has less then 200 inhabitants. The locals are really friendly, we have good contact to them, they also teach us.
Our aim is renovate both of the houses using old technics and use the field to grow vegetables first for ourself, later to sell them in the city.
The condition of the houses were very bad, and we started slowly to develope them. This houses are a highly valuable in the region, because they shape is how it was 100 years ago.
We renovate the mud wall, roof and also the builds outside. We build oven inside and outside, and renovate the traditional front side of the houses.
In the gardens we plant vegetables and flowers, conserving food for the winter, do natural fense. By visiting the neighbours and locals we collect seeds of old type vegetables to keep the traditional variety.
We are also collecting the old photos and stories about the house and do interviews with the locals.
