This year a lot of changes are happening in EkoPot and one of them is small RV in our back
yard. It was bought for us volunteers, so we could all enjoy our personal space and to be
able to express ourselves.
As life makes strange curves, the renovation became my personal project. At the beginning I
didn't know in what I was going, I had a romantic idea about how I would like it to be and
how many hours I will spend for the whole process (quite funny).
It ended up as a whole adventure. And the hours went into days and days went into weeks
:D..... but hey, I sleep now alone in my small RV, that looks like a hipster place from
Pinterest account and i did it by myself ...almost, because the community helped me a lot.
Luisa and Arno, Maja and Matjaž, even Žiga my boyfriend and my mother Jožica. Flying fork,
I almost forgot about Ema, who helped me one day with putting down the covers from beds
and sorting out trash ... THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR HELP, I LOVE YOU!
And one more thanks to EkoPot who was extra helpful and provided me with all the goodies
that I needed! Included cold vegan coffee with vegan milk....mmm <3.
Because this was a personal project, I would like to say that in the whole process I learned
a lot. Now I know how to use a shovel and how, I became quite a good digger, I know how
to make a »strait« terrace for a small »building«. I realized an idea, that was in my head and
that made me proud of myself. During the whole project I connected to the group and I
needed to express my whished and needs out loud, and I'm not that good at it. But in this
case, I think I was well organized, and I stud up for my ideas. I also got brave and went
alone to Bauhaus and bought same stuff i needed. The last part I'm most proud of. And
nevertheless, I got my personal space and the organization got a place for future
It was great and it is still great.
I'm enjoying it and I can have friends visiting me ... <3
