Our intention is to create and maintain a community in which we can support and help each other in a cooperative and sustainable way. We want it to be a space where we can exchange, expand and welcome our natural, social and cultural environment.

We need to establish links and relations between ourselves that will make us strong as individual beings and especially as a social web.

Thatís why we:

-Share sources to make life easier, simple, sustainable, coherent and very satisfactory.
-Promote respected and shared childcare.
-Cultivate a life of personal growth and conscious development.

We want to offer our work and energy, canalized trough different projects born from our own motivations, capacities and actual jobs, and some of which will guarantee our own economic self-sustainment.

Our plans are:

-Rebuild the traditional stone oven of the principal house to make homemade bread with consciousness, sour dough and organic flours
-Participate in organic-sustainable-craft-alternative markets with our pizzeria or bakery stands, also both using organic ingredients.
-Grow our own food in an organic way, following permacultural bases.
-Create several spaces for the creation of different artistic expresions: sculpture, music, dancing, circus, handcrafts...
-Offer health and personal growth services and workshops. Many of us work already in these fields: yoga, kinesilogy, bio-decodification of illnesses, dancetherapy, Chinese medicine, meditation, pregnancy, birth and childcare support.
-Create a respected and shared childcare space: a space where our children are accompanied and respected in their life processes.

There are in total 10 kids and 7 adults in our tribe, the number of kids is higher than adults, and from the beginning, they have been one of the most important motors of our project.

Each family will have itís own individual space/construction and we will use the principal house as common house with the bakery, kitchen, multifunctional room and other common buldings for woodworking, learning space (school), warehouse...

Our buildings will be designed with a humble, natural and sustainable way, adapting each building to the land

We deeply believe in horizontal and circle human organization, in where we all are situated in unity and equality. In an expression and empathic listening space. For this our way of functioning and our way of making decisions is reaching consensus through assemblies, peace dynamics, etc..
We are also exploring different tools for a creative conflict resolution.
