Pictures of Sona Sadlonova from february 2014 describe atmosphere of small carnival celebration. The event was organized for local pre-school and school kids by international volunteers from Eco-community Sekier (EVS) and teachers.
Population of Zaježová was 600 people in 1950s. Currently it is 200, and many new inhabitants came just recently. Original inhabitants, newcomers, people in rented houses, weekend visitors - all of them are mixed geographically. There is big diversity between newcomers, but there is also big diversity between original inhabitants. But most of them are older people closely tied to this place and lifestyle of their ancestors. They keep livestock, fields, agricultural machinery and work till very high age. Cooperation between newcomers and original inhabitants is mutually beneficial.
Common work of children and their parents while preparing firewood for school. This the way how to not only save some money, but also how to show children what is behind energy they use - how it is produced locally and how much work does it cost (not so much if we work together and have fun ;) Pictures: Soňa Sadloňová - Sonasfoto
