FIRST STEPS TOGETHER

And you? When are you coming to meet us and feel IKI-GAIA?

There are several ways to approach IKI-GAIA in this pioneering phase:

  • Doing “experiential Iki-tourism” and collaborating a few hours a day in the ecovillage by staying in our IKI-GAIA hostel, camping or spending a few days in your caravan. Places are very limited and priority is given to IKI-GAIA members and sympathising members!
  • Participating in the monthly music event that we have open every month (See below the pictures of the June event and the next proposed dates).
  • About-volunteering (at the moment we only welcome profiles with experience in masonry, carpentry, bio-construction, electricity, plumbing, Permaculture and similar and we have 2 places for experienced companions from alternative schools etc.).

Write to us giving us as much details as possible about your availability and motivation so that we can share the details with you and check the availability of the group to host you.

THE INTERGENERATIONAL AND MULTICULTURAL TRIBE OF IKI-GAIA

Intergenerational

We celebrate that in IKI-GAIA we are already 40 adults + 18 children /teenagers of different nationalities, who have gathered resources, gifts and talents and that we have ALREADY!! put in writing (by signing contracts and sending participation fees to the project account) our commitment to IKI-GAIA. There are less and less places left for pioneers at this stage! Start the process to apply to become a pioneer and/or reserve (up to 3 years) a place, and keep preparing yourself…,

Abundance

We already have more than 10 social lenders (who invest between 10.000 (minimum to be a social lender) and 175.000€) who support us by lending us money to be paid back in 5 years, most of it interest free 😉. Some of them with the intention of spending some time with us to feel if it is their project, while they are preparing themselves, to join and then move on to another membership figure of more active participation and to be able to reserve a plot of land.  Others invest in IKI-GAIA, aware of the urgency of investing in projects that favor the development of a new humanity!

Approaches

This month we are accompanying 15 adults and 11 children in the process of approaching and feeling if it is IKI-GAIA, here in the subtropical south of Europe (Malaga) and with our tribe where they want to project themselves, and us with them;)

The next face-to-face meeting where those who are advancing in the process will be able to meet a large part of the driving group, the wonderful place and all the details of the project (timeline, participation models, how the exit of the project works and returns, etc.)
Date to be determined

LAST PLACES FOR PIONEERS

There are less and less places left to participate in the 1st phase of IKI-GAIA before the opening of the campsite estimated in 2 years, which we have limited to 20 nuclei (groups of coexistence or individuals) in order to create the structure and the bases of the project that will make possible the entrance of more beings starting from the 3rd year when the singular bioclimatic campsite is officially open.

If our project resonates with you, if you want to live your dream NOW and you feel like a pioneer, you are still in time! There are some places left for PAMEF (pioneer stable founding member aspirant), and some more for AMEPAF (passive stable founding member aspirant) where you can, in addition to benefiting from all the advantages of founders, reserve a plot or an eco-bungalow in the campsite for up to 3 years.

 

PERSONALISED OPTIONS DESIGNED TO MAKE IT EASIER FOR YOU TO TAKE THE STEP AT PACE BUT WITH CONFIDENCE

Are you ready or getting ready to try a season or join us to co-create a future project in the south of Spain with us…?
NOW?, in 1 month?, in 6 months? to start next school year with us?, next year?, in 2/3 years?

ALIGNING TIMELINES, SPACES OF NON-TIME AND MANIFESTATION

Some days ago, the 11th of may, at the notary we signed  the purchase contract for the big farm of more than 200 hectares in Malaga province to grow it all into a FREE SCHOOL + ECOVILLAGE and co-create our Healing Biotope!!! We are already moving!!

Free of debts, since we paid the total value as we had been required for some time to formalize the sale and hand over the keys of the farmhouse, we thank the universe that we have the resources (and we continue to gather and call abundance) to undertake this pioneering phase with strength and confidence.

Below we share with you the letter that was given to us in the form of gratitude and blessings with the signature.

UPCOMING EVENTS

LAST FACE-TO-FACE MEETING OPEN TO NEW IKI-GAIA APPROACH-HOLDERS

LAST IKI-GAIA  FACE-TO-FACE EVENT OF THIS PHASE  OF GATHERINGS FROM APRIL 28 TO MAY 1

Good day  to you dear worldwide tribe  who is co-creating the new humanity.

We are pleased to share with you that in May we are entering a new phase of the IKI-GAIA ecovillage project where we need to  focus on the process of moving and creating an internal structure with the pioneer seed group of the project.

That is why we do not know yet when we will be ready to put energy back into these face-to-face  ecovillage meetings that we have been holding about once a month  in our transition place in Almayate over  the last year. Unforgettable meetings that have helped us to count on enough  future ecovillagers, collaborators and social lenders to start the desired phase of the project that will finally start in May, and  create the great international support network  that the project counts on.

 

We have opened a last face-to-face meeting from April 29 to May 1 to continue with the open approach processes, formalise  the last entries of  founding  members and start the approach process with those contacts who  are reaching out to us with a lot of clarity and focus, feel in  sync with our current moment in time and have a pioneer profile, or want to support us as social lenders.

 

 

Here you can have a look at the detailed programme.

As soon as we are on our own premises , the face-to-face  meetings will become "experience weeks",  the protocols for accepting new members will be longer and include trial periods.

 

As there are very few places left to participate in this pioneering phase from May 2022 to May 2024, we have made a call to the universe to attract/find those specific profiles who will  add their gifts and talents, as well as their professional experience, in the different areas we are developing. Permaculturists, carpenters, bio-constructors, professional secretaries with experience in  exceland databases,  web developers, graphic designers, plumbers, pedagogic guides with experience in free primary and secondary schools (or alternatives), bakers, people from the world of Art and Culture (musicians, plastic artists, people from circus and scenic arts), inner researchers connected with the Self and Nature are very welcome!!!

If you feel the call to meet part of the seed group, visit the wonderful flourishing piece of land  and feel/evaluate if this  is an option for you, fill out this survey and let us know by email as soon as possible to reserve a place for you. Very limited vacancies!!!!

Here you can see the  steps that are prerequisites in order  to participate in our face-to-face  meeting.

We invite you to read all the information we have published in the ecovillage section of our website to come with as much information as possible to our meeting. If you haven't read anything yet, you can start with this post.

LAST DAYS TO BENEFIT FROM THE 20% DISCOUNT AS FOUNDER OF IKI-GAIA

Just one step away from closing the purchase agreement, we remind you that if you confirm your participation as a collaborator or AME (aspiring stable member) of the project, you will benefit from a 20% discount on the established fees and you will enjoy all the advantages that IKI-GAIA founders acquire. Ask us for more information to find out about them.

HAVE A LOOK AT THE OPTIONS YOU HAVE TO ADD YOUR CONTRIBUTION TO IKI-GAIA AND COLLABORATE WITH THE FIRST PROJECTS OF THE BIOTOPE

We would like to use this internal communication to let you know that we are working on the launch of the first open crowdfunding to cover the minimum investments that the project needs in this Phase I to take off with force, and that we have calculated in 300,000 €: reforms of some infrastructures of the farmhouse that allow us to have larger communal rooms for the educational project and the Music Academy, tanks to store the water of the fountain, implementation of the food forest, earthworks to prepare the space where we will install the first caravans, etc.

From the IKI-GAIA motor group we feel that we can reach at least 225.000€ of the 300.000€ we need with your help. On the one hand, we would like that this first economic impulse that we need arrives blessed from this closest circle, with money coming from your hands. And on the other hand, we are aware that launching crowdfunding campaigns of more than 75.000€ are very difficult and there is a risk of having to return everything if it is not reached.

!!For us it would be wonderful to undertake the first investments with the economy gathered by our motor group and your trust before launching the more open campaign that we are preparing!!

To support us and/or take steps towards IKI-GAIA, you have the option to donate, or to contribute as a collaborator or lender of IKI-GAIA.

To make it easier for you to understand the options, we have created these simple cards that we invite you to take a look at here

PERMACULTURE ACADEMY

This situation and the unleashed systemic crisis has reconfirmed that we were on the right path! There are more and more beings returning to the land and eager to recover our food and energy sovereignty in rural areas. We are overflowing with work! The demand for our services as permaculturists continues to grow! Do you dare to train in a profession of the future?

Fulfilled the 7 years of this cycle leading Permaculture projects and advising many families, projects and associations / companies in the area on the management of natural resources, gardens and edible forests, water harvesting, etc., we open horizons to give shape to the Permaculture Academy projected in the space where we will start our ecovillage IKI-GAIA. Would you like to learn about this holistic science that offers us permanent solutions to the challenges we face at a very low cost?

CROWDFUNDING AND FINANCING

With a wonderful engine group gathering the 2nd ecosample to move forward with the purchase of the great land for the ecovillage that will host the dreams of so many beings, we realize that we need a little push to accelerate the materialization of our holistic project. Would you like to help us to find ways?

The trailer of our crowdfunding video is about to be released and we are looking for people who would like to join this team to boost the campaign, as well as explore more ways of funding that allow us to dedicate ourselves to build the ecovillage focused on what it touches, so that all generations can, as soon as possible, return to live in harmony and close the cycle from birth to old age.

If you move in the world of investments and abundance, you want to invest part of your savings in a life project that welcomes you, or you simply want to support this model of society, do not hesitate to contact us!

TRAINING AND EVENTS

Are you passionate about organizing events, courses, offering face-to-face and/or online training? From September we start again with webinars, face-to-face meetings, and we want to launch an online platform to give impetus and share all our knowledge, gifts and talents, inspire each other and continue learning.

From the platform promoted by our association GAIA-VESAD "for a healthy and dignified life and education" we want to promote the new educational paradigm that is making its way. Through a holistic educational platform of the new humanity, we want to cover the learning needs of all generations, and offer tools to educators and parents who educate at home or in small educational projects with fewer resources.

Graphic designers, computer scientists, programmers, communicators, and all kinds of support in advertising and network management, marketing, logistics, cooking, animation, etc. are welcome.

BIOCONSTRUCTION BIOCLIMATIC CAMPING

Although the farm has already renovated infrastructure to start with some projects from minute 0 (school, bakery, tourist accommodation, etc., we have many square meters built to be renovated and a unique bioclimatic camping project very ambitious that encompasses the entire surface of the land and where we are working on the holistic design.

For this, we need to expand the multidisciplinary team of collaborators (permaculturists, biobuilders, engineers, architects, site managers, etc.) who would like to try and project themselves in our ecovillage and/or contribute in this design and planning phase, learn and develop professionally in this area that will generate many jobs as soon as the implementation phase begins.

"Learning beim doing". While the permits and funds for the implementation of the official construction of the campsite arrive, there is a lot to be done and we will be financing them through courses and events bringing experts in the field that will teach us.

THE YEAR TOWARDS OUR IKI-GAIA

SPECIAL IKI-GAIA GERMINATING IN SPRINGTIME

Ready to take the step

AN INNOVATIVE MODEL ADAPTED TO TIMES OF TRANSITION

Our GAIA SCHOOL model of Education in values and for the Sustainable Development and Regeneration of the Planet + ECOALDEA IKI-GAIA (or sustainable human settlement around it) has been designed taking care of all the details in order to welcome families and beings who feel that this is the future that the planet and humanity need and want to take the step to try it.

With a trial period of 3 years, and another 7 years to see if this is where you want to be, and continue to be from the absolute conviction and freedom, a world of possibilities opens in front of you to become a member of our project and worker of one of the projects that we promote from the beginning:

    • GAIA ECO-Learning Community
    • iKI-GAIA Organic Bakery and Restaurant
    • Agro-ecological projects
    • Ecological store
    • Permaculture Academy
    • Music and arts academy
    • organization of trainings and events
    • bioclimatic camping
    • IKI-GAIA foundation, etc

FOSTERING THE ECONOMIC SOVEREIGNTY OF ALL MEMBERS

In IKI-GAIA, autonomy and economic independence, as well as the sacred space of each member, are fundamental axes that guarantee healthy human relationships (without dependence) based on trust and love. Hence, the Entrepreneurship Center of the project is one of the projects that we have already started to accompany you on this journey in search of your ikigai or in the materialization of your great dream with us.

To savor more of our proposal we leave you this short presentation that speaks for itself.
You can also read the last post of our website by clicking here if you haven't done it yet.

STARTING THE COLLABORATION

With a minimum financial contribution, you will be able to start collaborating and benefit from multiple advantages and be part of this dream at your own pace (in the way we both agree), without the pressure of having to make the decision from one day to the next.

Feeling if it is your place, in this project and with this family and tribe where you want to be for the next years, is fundamental for us and for the good development of the project. For this reason, we have designed a very flexible and innovative participation model that will allow you, without risking or investing large amounts, to start walking towards your ikigaia or individual and group life purpose and feel WHERE you want to project yourself, HOW, WHEN and WITH WHOM.

As guardians of the vision, we will simply take care that it is always aligned with mother GAIA, and all proposals are respectful of the welfare of children and the most vulnerable, who in our project will always have the prominent place they deserve.

Waiting for the right moment to take the step is fundamental, and from IKI-GAIA we are WAITING for you!

ECOVILLAGE SEEDS AND PIONEERS

If, on the other hand, you have been feeling for a long time that this is the direction in which you want to focus your life, and you need to materialize it now and be coherent with your principles, write us an e-mail presentation or letter of motivation so that we can feel you and start the process!
semilla@semillamontealegre.org

To be a pioneer of our project, in addition to the economic contributions (deposit fee) and minimum volunteering work that help us to know each other and co-create, we only ask for a commitment to try (on both sides) for 3 years, after which you can recover the corresponding part of the deposit fee invested and continue on your way grateful for the experience and the learning that we take with us.

In this first phase of IKI-GAIA we welcome some more pioneers who enter with decision and resources that can help us move forward with the project in this pioneering phase prior to the opening of the campsite estimated for 2023.

BEING INVESTOR OF YOUR OWN DREAMS

Through an ROI investment model inspired by American models (return on investment), you can become an investor in our project, secure your savings and benefit from great advantages.

We know that our model is not for everyone and we are very selective with the individuals and companies that are interested in our project...

If you have at least 10.000 € to invest in IKI-GAIA or you want to participate in the creation of the IKI-GAIA Foundation, do not hesitate to contact us to get to know us and tell you the details.

Investing part of your savings and betting on IKI-GAIA in 2021 will offer you great advantages as founders of our project! What better place to invest your savings than in a life project that gives you the possibility to realize your dreams and those of your children.

IKI-GAIA Ecovillage Model, Axarquia (Málaga)

"IKI-GAIA": Model of a Sustainable Ecovillage

”To live in community, to feel useful and to be always engaged with what we love. Following a purpose in harmony with nature brings happiness"

EKOPLAN "IKI-GAIA" is a holistic i+D+i project where we co-create a HEALING BIOTOP that is developed and designed around an inter-generational, multidisciplinary and multicultural Center called Inspira-SanAccion: IKI-GAIA. In a natural environment with inspiring and coherent eco-educational work and living spaces, it is easy for the beings who live there to be connected to their IKIGAI, their purpose in life.

In all our actions/decisions we transversally integrate the view of the four dimensions of sustainability (social, ecological, cultural/worldview and economic) promoting the Circular Economy based on Resources

Guided by our IKIGAI (reason of being, purpose of life) individual and group, we cooperate with our MOTHER EARTH (GAIA) in her mission to regenerate, restore the harmony and facilitate abundance for EVERYONE.

 

 

For our Mother Gaia

Located within a Healing Biotope that we co-create together, our model of eco-school, slow tourism and sustainable ecovillage is designed to generate the minimum impact between the community of beings that inhabit it and the Nature around us.

We apply in a practical way water retention techniques in landscapes and regenerative practices,in order to help create more biodiversity and optimal environments for education, housing and sustainable ways of earning a living, where we can live and fully develop ourselves in complete harmony with nature around a resilient, coherent and mutually supportive social network where we are all references. Seeing, hearing, touching, smelling, feeling and experiencing in first person why certain practices and lifestyles help to care for the planet, while we care for people, will be an unforgettable sensorial experience that will help us understand why we have reached such a state of climatic emergency and disconnection with our essence, as well as reflect on what we can do and put into practice to reverse the situation in our daily lives.

For the whole family

Guided by the principles of Ethics, Common Sense, Shared Prosperity and Circular Economy, the whole family will be able to benefit from this life project designed to offer the best conditions of psycho-social-educational, emotional and motor development to children and future generations.

In a family and rural environment of explosive landscape beauty, we facilitate the participation in our ecovillage to volunteers, visitors and clients through the Socio-cultural Center and Ecological Restaurant, the Bioclimatic Camping, the Iki-Gaia Eco-Learning Community or the Farm School, the Co-housing of the Elderly, the SaLUZ Center, the Retreat House, the Birth House, the trainings, workshops and events that we organize or collaborate with some of their key projects in the fields of agro-ecology, technology, renewable energies, health, holistic education or creativity, etc.  It is a wonderful opportunity to work on individual and group development to discover our ikigai and put our gifts and talents at the service of the continium cambium and what it takes to promote the new paradigm that today's society and the planet need.

 

Uniting generations and cultures

Sharing as in a great Family by embracing each other in diversity, recognizing each other in complementarity and giving  back to our elders, the place they deserve in our society, as sources of experience and wisdom, is one of our main purposes.

Our Iki-Gaia ecovillage model is designed so that all generations can enjoy and benefit from the nutritious and necessary intergenerational, interdisciplinary and multicultural exchange of knowledge that occurs naturally and organically when we bring together the different cycles of life and different cultures. Through carefully designed residential, work and meeting spaces and celebrations, all generations will feel welcome to let their reason for being emerge and express their individuality, feeling they are heard, useful and participating in the co-creation of a great Common Dream that feeds back to each individual dream that is integrated into the global project in line with their vision.

Be HAPPY feeling as a co-creator of the WHOLE: EVERYTHING... YOUR ❤ WAS LOOKING FOR!

This beautiful project, located in a large Mediterranean Andalusian forest, with majestic oaks of even more than 9 meters high spread across the landscape, gives you the oportunity to participate in diferent ways:  spending some time in the bioclimatic campsite, with even the possibility of living there, in sustainable and passive housing of great comfort. It is an opportunity to live coherently covering vital needs of your whole family - education, food, health, etc.

Being integrated in an idyllic regenerative, healing and sensible environment, facilitates the deployment of all human potential by promoting synergies and collaborations between its members. The satisfaction of discovering/being aligned with your ikigai or purpose in life, accompanied by beings with similar values and principles who pursue a great global dream, are a guarantee of Well-being, Health and Longevity.

WE OFFER

In this first phase of the project we offer the possibility to participate as pioneer investors in our project and acquire rights of use, - even for life - in the campsite, and other rights related to the reservation of offices and workshops in the coworking zone, as well as exclusivity for key projects in line with the global project a:

Ecovillages would not exist without pioneers capable of visualizing them and ecovillagers who come to water the seeds and inhabit them. To be a pioneer of an integral life project like the one we started requires to be very coherent, visionary, to have a path in the world of individual development and to be very clear about what you want.
Call us to meet us at the next intimate ecovillage meeting that we organize.

How to start the process

KEY PROJECTS

INSPIRA-SANACCIÓN CENTER: IKIGAIA

We are aware that the regain of our SOVEREIGNTY in the fields of HEALTH, EDUCATION, FOOD, and ENERGY are the basis of any successful process of deep transformation of society, as well as the central role played by individualized and respectful Education in the formation of FREE BEINGS with a critical spirit. We want to BE GOOD REFERENCES AND SOURCES OF INSPIRATION to facilitate from the EXAMPLE the replication of the New Paradigm in all areas of life.

Driven by the implementation of the educational project for children of compulsory school age that next year 2021/22 would start its 4th year of life and an interdisciplinary Academy of PermaCulture - Semilla Monte Alegre - and for all generations that nourishes it with practice, wisdom and coherence, our Center of Inspira-San-Acción offers us the ideal framework to develop all other projects that feed back into the school: Farm School and Holistic Livestock, Science, Arts and Technology Laboratories, Arts and Crafts Schools, Socio-cultural Center, etc.  Projects aligned with Iki-Gaia's vision that promote the development of SOVEREIGN beings capable of discerning, facing the challenges of society and the planet and materializing their individual and collective dreams.

GAIA ECO-LEARNING COMMUNITY

This project is born from the recognition  that Education has the central role  in the formation of VALUES and in social action, as well as from the total commitment with the TRANSFORMATION of the educational process to promote a NEW PARADIGM that favors the replication of sustainable and equitable societies.

Our motor and integral life project, which is already in its third year  (and already has a homeschooling program approved in Estonia while the approval process is underway in Spain), allows the reunion of families with similar values who want to be participants in the co-creation of a different holistic school where the cooperation of the entire educational community - students, companions and family members - among themselves and with their environment, is essential for the proper development of the school.

Acting locally and thinking globally, we encourage the participation and collaboration of people from different generations, disciplines and cultures, aware that the future of the planet will depend on us offering them, NOW and despite the context of integral crisis that we are suffering, the best conditions for their psycho-social, physical and emotional development.

SUSTAINABLE TOURISM IKI-GAIA SLOW

Due to the great acceptance and demand that exists between tourists, foreign resident families, and Spanish families that want to complement the education of their children with a more outdoor educational proposal that emphasizes on environmental education and values, we have decided to open a more public area, a bioclimatic campsite, and offer attractive options for the whole family designed to bring children closer to nature and develop their commitment to the environment. With a large natural swimming pool, a farm-school where the children can feed the animals, a large garden area with native trees and fruit trees to learn about the local ecosystem and the arts of farming, a biotope where they can discover how the amphibians of the region live, etc. being at Iki-Gaia will be an unforgettable experience.

Through Iki-Gaia Slow rural tourism, you will also be able to approach this holistic project as a collaborator and try out a more conscious and coherent lifestyle, complementing, at the same time, the holistic education of your children in an environment of Nature, respect and sustainability that values our heritage, customs and traditions in a very enjoyable and original way.

ACTIVITIES IN NATURE FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY

We will also organize tours along the hiking trails so that you can discover the vegetation and fauna native to the area; climbing days; visits to the mini Iki-gaia Adventure Park and other spots of tourist interest in the area.

And to complement the proposal of the campsite: concerts, workshops and talks of all kinds about the environment, recognition of edible wild plants, healthy family cooking, arts and crafts, etc. and of course, circus shows to make your stay in our campsite an unforgettable experience!

SUSTAINABILITY, BIOCONSTRUCTION AND BIOCLIMATISM DEFINE THE ESSENCE OF IKI-GAIA

Located in one of the most beautiful places in Axarquia, the Iki-gaia campsite will offer different types of accommodation so that you can choose the one that best suits your needs: spacious bungalows, stone, wood or earthbag houses, plots to erect your own tent or yurt or park your vehicle or caravan, caravans to accommodate a whole family, as well as shelters built of wood and comfortable cotton tents with enough space for four people. All powered by wind energy and heating systems for the winter based on olive pits.

Pioneers, collaborators and long and short term visitors, as well as organized groups from all over the world will be able to rent even campsite cores to do their own training or activities and participate in those offered by Iki-Gaia in a magical, unique and inspiring environment.

HEALTHY HOMES WITH GREAT AIR QUALITY AND COMFORT

The designs of our houses are conceived, paying special attention to the materials that we find in the area and the use of energy, prioritizing the passive systems to reduce the energy demand (good orientation, heavy elements with high thermal inertia, sizing of windows, compact designs, grouping of installations, etc).

With unbeatable acoustic, thermal and air quality comfort, the passive houses that we are planning in the campsite act in a similar way to an insulated thermos, since it maintains its content at a correct temperature, without the need for active heating or cooling, as happens with a coffee machine. Its ventilation system imperceptibly supplies the necessary fresh air, avoiding the formation of humidity and the generation of mould.

With our approach to housing, we try to address the future moment to which we are doomed with new regulatory requirements from climate change and the temporalityof natural resources, so that it results in a benefit in the long run, from the proper use of resources

Ecological restaurant, natural swimming pool, SaLUZ and care center, mini Adventure Park, Cohousing of seniors, Conference and multipurpose room...

Permaculture Slow Tours

PERMACULTURE SCHOOL SEMILLA MONTE ALEGRE

For the whole family

A day at a very inspiring permaculture farm full of unforgettable surprises for big, small and medium. Depending on the group (more beginners, professionals of the sector, with majority of adolescents or children) more or less demonstrative practices will be made, and, the theoretical explanatory part, will be more or less technical.

Good for the environment

This route of "slow tourism" with small groups and in a rural environment of the Axarquia of Malaga, is designed to generate the minimum impact between the community of people who inhabit it, and the Nature around which they are hosted. In addition, all the food and gifts offered to the visitor are organically produced, vegan and as local and seasonal as possible.

Educational and environmental awareness tour

Seeing, hearing, touching, smelling and feeling why certain practices collaborate to take care of the planet, while we take care of people, will be an unforgettable sensory experience that will help us understand why we have reached the state of declared climate emergency and reflect on what we can do to reverse the situation in our daily lives; at home, school, work, holidays, etc.

SENSORY JOURNEY

"Learning with the 7 senses about Permaculture and its advantages for humans, their environment, and the next 7 generations", is a sensory journey that immerses the visitor in an integral life project; an invitation to co-create a better future.

"Eco-Experience on an Inspiring Sustainable Permaculture Farm", is without a doubt, a very inspiring educational route that will captivate and make us reflect on the simple solutions that we can implement in our daily lives - at home, at work or on the farm - to live more in tune with Nature; contributing, at the same time, to do our bit to reverse the state of climatic emergency and minimize our ecological footprint.

Through the explanation and vision of different regenerative practices -compost, edible forests, etc.-, techniques of water retention in the landscape -Swales- and recycling of grey water, the visitor will develop the 7th sense, -the capacity to recognize which practices and actions are in our hands and contribute to a better world; besides receiving a holistic formation in the world of Permaculture and sustainability.

ROUTE OVERVIEW

After a brief introduction about the educational day and the place that hosts it, the guide, a renowned Swiss permacultor and musician based in the Axarquia, will offer several tours/sessions that will introduce the visitor to the world of Permaculture and holistic design through the viewing of the different areas of Permaculture, water retention techniques in landscapes; creation of compost, etc.

The highlight of the day will undoubtedly be to share the impressions/reflections of the inspiring experience by tasting a vegetarian-vegan lunch with seasonal organic produce grown largely on the farm.

IMPRESSIONS OF PERMACULTURE TOURS FROM LAST YEAR

[embed-google-photos-album link="https://photos.app.goo.gl/6z1xNmfahQ7Tx4Cv9"]

ITINERARY

After a dynamic welcome and introduction of the Permaculture day in the upper part of the farm, - enjoying the wonderful views of the Sierra de Tejeda and Almijara and the sea - we will go down to the kitchen area to get to know the history and the owners of the place.

We will start the immersion tour by recognizing the different "Permaculture zones" as a game; as well as some "Water Retention" techniques that help the aquifer to regenerate, while avoiding erosion.

Afterwards, we will taste some products from the farm while enjoying a drink. Depending on the season, we will try roasted acorns, fig bread, smoothies with Aloe Vera and Moringa, products derived from almonds and olives, etc.

We will continue to walk down the paths of the farm to the Yoga centre and discover different techniques for creating compost to regenerate life in the soil. We will pass through magical corners with edible forests where we will try wild and cultivated plants, bushes and fruits that feed the senses and nourish the human being and biodiversity.

In the Yoga Center we will do a small group dynamic to enter the theme of Bioconstruction. We will explain how this Center was built, its wonderful rocket stove, as well as other spaces on the farm with sustainable materials.

The morning's educational day will culminate with a visit to the farm's greenhouse where the visitor will be able to recognize samples of fast-growing, pioneering tree and plant seedlings with minimal water requirements that are ideal for reforestation and nitrogen fixation in the soil. And, depending on the season, we will make a practice of sowing seedlings, pioneer or fruit trees etc.

At 14:00h it is time to share impressions around an original vegan lunch full of km 0 flavours, smells and colours of the season.

To finish, the visitor will receive a small gift along with the educational material of the day and it will be the moment, for those who wish, to acquire home made products from the farm.
