  • Description


    In the deep green hearth of Calabria we are starting a new eco/sustainable project, based on permaculture principles. We are a dynamic and diverse group of friends with the goal of creating a safe and protected space where it is possible to disconnect from the rhythm of the outside world, reconnect to the core essence of the human spirit, live and work symbiotically and harmoniously with Nature.

    Our daily life is simple and full, we take care of the orchard, the vegetable garden, the animals and our selves.

    We take our time to cook and eat together as well as meditate, walk around the woods, explore the river and practice arts and simply relax.

    We do not eat meat and preferably enjoy people who do not drink much alcohol and smoke, thanks!
