Our project aims at developping a self-resilient place in the middle of the Pyrenees mountain chain (South France) and practicing Ecology on a daily basis.

Here we learn, share, aware, respect, accompany, shape and communicate on a very simple basis : "Minimize your impact on this planet and maximise general happiness". This is one of the reason the place is vegan.

If you want to share (or already share) this vision, you are more than welcome!

Our work consist in :

1/ Restauring an old house, partly troglodyte (carpentery, alternative way of energy production...) to create a "workshop area", where we could finaly host events, classes, debates to approach the world differently than the main-capitalistic-stream...;

2/ Regenerating the soil together with providing food to the residents : we base our work on permanent agro-forestry cycles (I am not talking of permaculture but it is); Oïkos land is only 0.15ha, thereby we are "experimenting" in order to feed max 5 people. We are also prospecting for other shared lands, assuming an enthusiastic futur of our project, who has only 2 years now :-) ;

3/ Developing medicinal herbs gardening (under progress... I mean discovering the wild herbs and their properties);

4/ Planning the animal refuge project (under progress... I mean not to plan it but to acquire the space to go that way);

5/ Planning the refugees' housing project (under progress... I mean not to plan it but to gather the contacts to go that way).

After several years spent in different communities and farms, it is now time to build something coming from all the experiences gathered and positive energies accumulated :-)

In exchange of your help, we offer roof and comfortable bed, organic food, forest source water (healing properties for kidneys) in a moutainous healthy environment. We are located on a hicking path closeby a tiny village of 40 inhabitants ; the closest city is 1/2h car drive. Mediterranean see at 1hour. Spain is accessible by bicycle in 30 min. Barcelona is located 160km south.

Work (max. 4-5 hours, 5-6 days a week) will be defined together according to your habilities and physical strength. Everybody can find his/her place here ;-)

Welcome to our dream. May all the beings be free, in peace and happy.
