We are located at the site of a once rather successful village, which was abandoned as a result of the consolidation of the collective farms.
We are located at the site of a once rather successful village, which was abandoned as a result of the consolidation of the collective farms. It had a school, shops, a mill and a brick factory.
Now only one local resident is left. There is a beautiful forest made up mainly of birch and pine trees. A small river Bolshoi Corchugan flows through the middle of the settlement. We hope to create a beach for kids here.
We started construction of the first house in the summer of 2010. There are two empty brick buildings for temporary accommodation while building commences.
Now, there are 11 houses altogether. 8 people (including 3 children) are living in 4 of them. The rest are summer houses for residents of Kemerovo. Last year we homeschooled the children, but this year we take them to the neighboring village school 6km away.
The land is rich and fertile. We have taken up beekeeping.
We do not yet have a charter. We are in the process of defining it. At the moment, we have the right to use the land rent free.
There is light in the houses, and dirt roads lead to the villages: Kornilovo (4 km), Mokrousovo (6 km), and Tsapino (7 km). There are buses 3 times a day.
We are planning to construct a common building, school and new type of store. There is an empty brick house which can serve as a temporary home for 4 families.
We hope to create a small children's settlement for orphaned children. We will build homes where they and their new foster parents can live.
There is a distant place,
Where every day is beautiful
Where the shadow of forgotten life
Where the soul sleeps so sweet
Next to loving soul,
And wisdom dreams at night,
Every day is filled with happiness,
Joy and excitement,
And the only thing that saddens me
Is our sweet seagull’s cry.
Where loving neighbors
Usher you to the bathhouse
Tripping over themselves
To tell you all the news.
I love its vastness,
River, glade, field,
The lack of fences,
Gathering around the campfire.
The stove that burns at dusk,
The wind blowing through the pipes
And softly, a candle melts
Like the sins in my life.
We are so glad to meet,
To warm and feed our guests.
Let the sun shine down on us
And happy shall we be.
