PERMACULTURE GARDEN SPACE

Our educational project Gaia, as you will have heard us say more than once ;), puts a lot of emphasis on sustainability and food sovereignty; how we feed ourselves. That's why we have started a school garden in our Almayate space, so that ALL THE FAMILY can participate and learn how to regenerate the land, grow food and process it.
You are invited to participate with your children in the activities related to agro-ecology and sustainability that we have scheduled for Mondays
coordinated by the Swiss permacultor Daniel Stocker
(Spanish / English and German lessons).

THE FOOD IN GAIA PROJECT

As healthy, ecological and km 0 food is one of the pillars of the project, along with learning to share them, our educational proposal includes breakfast and lunch in the price.

Providing food from the project is designed, on the one hand, to cover the needs of children to eat from time to time and, secondly, the need to do so in a structured way from the project; avoiding waste, comparisons and cravings to see their friends eating different things.

The idea is that this daily habit forms part of a ritual-celebration of coming together, giving thanks for the food and sharing it with our friends.

The food will always be balanced, in terms of protein and carbohydrates, with an abundance of legumes, vegetables, sprouts, quinoa, millet and whole grains. In the preparation of the meals, no refined food will be used, -no refined flour or oil, no salt, etc.- nor will fried food be served or prepared with palm oil, sunflower oil, etc.

Menus for diabetics and gluten intolerance kids also possible.
