11:00 WORKSHOP: Introduction to Permaculture with Daniel Stocker


Water retention landscapes, edible forests, soil regeneration and microorganisms.

We live in a world of extremes: very strong winds, times of severe droughts and floods, polluted water and food with almost no nutrients. Every day mankind moves further away from nature.

Fortunately, more and more of us are looking for sustainable alternatives to live in a way that is more in line with our principles and more in harmony with our environment.

“All solutions can be found in the garden! (Geoff Lawton)

We can design a way out of this misery. We have already united knowledge in a holistic science: PERMAKULTUR.

Daniel Stocker is a Swiss musician – double bass player – living in Málaga, who has been working on various permaculture projects in the Axarquía for more than five years. His main project is Monte Alegre, where he designed the water retention landscape and coordinated the permaculture work with his accumulated experience. The Forest Garden Project Monte Alegre is 4 years old and has more than 500 plants that are only irrigated with collected rainwater! After several years of voluntary work in other projects and participation in permaculture workshops and seminars that fascinated him – such as the seminar on water retention landscapes in Tamera (Portugal) www.tamera.org- – he started to advise companies and private individuals. His main focus is on soil regeneration including the reproduction of native microorganisms, the creation of water retention landscapes, reforestation and the creation of forest gardens in dry zones.

12:00 WORKSHOP: Yoga for children and families

Tense and integration which is hidden in the movements creates strong, positive vibrations use to silence our mind, free our potential, strengthen our bodies, remove all the toxins and give us courage to live our lives full-on. Power of the silenced mind, opens the door to perceive with our Heart. Teaches us to listen to the guide inside, to the healer, the master. What will You tell Yourself?

16:00 WORKSHOP: Sow your ancient seed with ALONSO NAVARRO

Synergistic biodynamic farmer and founder of Plantaromed.
Dedicated to the recovery and cultivation of ancient peasant seeds, Alonsi is a passionate and great collector of auxiliary, medicinal, and culinary plants.
In the workshop “Sow your ancient seed”, the whole family will be able to participate in a master class on ancient seeds and take away some planted seeds. It is recommended to bring yogurt cups, flowerpots or small containers to sow, here we offer you the soil and the old seed.

Plantaromed is a synergic-biodynamic agriculture project” promoted by ALONSO NAVARRO, research farmer.

The farm where “el Viso de los Romeros” works is located in the Biosphere Reserve “Sierra de las Nieves”, between the towns of Alozaina and Yunquera (Málaga) where he started his activity almost 20 years ago with his partner.

The cultivation methods practiced on the farm have evolved from traditional to organic farming, to synergistic agriculture and finally to biodynamics. It has been, as Alonsi says, a natural progression, fruit of our passion for nature.

Alonsi’s project is developed with a deep research work with the soil, with seeds and plants, where we study how to create our own inputs, how certain plants can cure other plants and other people, or influence the properties of crops (aromas, flavour, nutrients, etc …).

17:00 WORKSHOP: Contemporary Dance with Valentina
