Proyecto de eco aldea y Biotopo de Sanación junto al Parque Natural Sierra de Tejada y Almijara, Nerja (Málaga)

Después de más de 6 años de búsqueda, con la llegada de nuestro hijo Osiris el año pasado -2016- encontramos "El Lugar",o, mejor dicho, éste nos encontró: un paraíso abandonado que reúne más de 150 ha lindando con el parque Natural Sierra de Tejada y Almijara, el cual está clamando ayuda y en donde queremos crear un BIOTOPO DE SANACIÓN con bosque de alimentos de clima subtropical que contrarreste el proceso de desertificación y erosión tan acusado que sufrimos por el sur.

Nuestra comunidad esta basada en pequeñas fincas familiares,donde hemos reconstruido sus ruinas, repoblado sus huertas y recuperado sus manantiales.

Hof Hackenow

Hof Hackenow

We are a small group of people settling in the very east of Brandenburg close to the polish border in the beautiful Oderbruch region.
We have 2ha of space and two houses on it that needs renovation. We plan on doing permaculture in order to provide us with local fresh veggies, at the same time we strive to not destroy and protect the last bits of nature around us if possible - so to live peacefully with other creatures around us.

Peace of Mind

Peace of Mind

Experimenting with higher satisfaction of life

For many years I've wanted to start a new kind of intentional community, and now I'm ready to commit.

Even though we live in the best time ever, many people are more tired or unhappy then they need to be.

Political/economic reform will not work if people want to stay consumers. We need something more desirable than what consumerism offers. We need to inspire them with a real world example.

This has always been my calling and so over the last decade I've been designing a new lifestyle that provides a new kind of satisfaction.

It was established in 2009. We work to farm our land with ecological methods to offer an alternative to conventional farming methods which harm the weather, soil and air.

Un Camino de Restauración de la Vieja Selva Europea

Más allá del mito de la ardilla de Estrabón, lo cierto es que amplias zonas de Hispania que hoy son esteparias, fueron en otro tiempo bosques inmensos. Esta característica del extremo suroccidental de Europa no era una rareza en el continente. Hay indicios suficientes que prueban la existencia de una selva europea, del estilo de las tropicales. Aquí tardó siglos en desaparecer; en los trópicos fuimos testigos de la devastación en sólo unas pocas décadas.

Alternative View

Alternative View

We are a young couple who are looking for an alternative way of living.
Our hope is to find a location in the north of Spain and populate a rural village.

The intention is to live and work in a sustainable way, sharing ideas and assisting others in work.
It is however important that each persons freedom is respected, and they are allowed to explore and understand their own version of truth. Through this mutual respect of others we hope to build a sustainable co-operative community of people.

What we need is a location in need of restoration and re-population.
