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.

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.
