We're building an ecovillage from scratch.
It's a love project so it will be made with pleasure and everybody is welcome to join in! ;)
The 10th of August the building of the first earth Dome starts! (6 meters in diameter)
This is going to be a workshop for ANYBODY who wants to learn about sustainable living. So feel free to come and bring your friends!
We are sure this will be an unforgettable experience!!
There are a couple of waterfalls and a few ponds in the land.
We will enlarge two of the existing ponds so that water can be kept all year round.
The earth from the ponds will be used in the Dome.
Currently the ponds run dry around Jully for up to three months.
We, friends and volunteers (= future friends) will be on the land for all of August.
The idea for now is to camp, but there is a family house in a little village 4 km away from the land, if you prefer a normal bed!
Along with music and fun, vegetarian meals will be provided!
We are looking for people that want to help out at all levels, with or without knowledge.
There are no minimal hours of work per day, and everybody can stay for however long he or she prefers. Every single day of joy will be very much appreciated!
Bring an instrument if you can ;)
"Walkabouts" and jamsessions are all part of the plan!
Thanks for reading, contributing and being part of this beautiful project!
Graciano, Floris, Ariane, Julien, Olivia, Sebastian, Marta, Rui and yourself ;)
