Description

This project was started by a Swiss geographer and an Irish biologist after witnessing the decline in traditional methods of farming, which maintained the variety of animal and plant life in Europe for millennia. 

The goal is to preserve the land and revive traditional housing and farming with the help of new technologies. The center also focuses strongly on wildlife research and observation, to better understand the landscape and wildlife of the surrounding area.

This center focuses heavily on ethology, the study of animal behavior, with an emphasis on behavioral patterns that occur in the wild. The research is primarily focused on natural horsemanship which is the keeping, handling and training of horses based on equine ethology, but has the opportunity for volunteers to work with local azure-winged magpies, and work in the vegetable garden.
