  • Description

    Description

    We are a small community in the hills of Biancareddu, on Sardinia's west coast, 1 km from the sea. We started in 2016 in a 8 ektars land with small forest, centenary olive trees, pond, well, earth houses. Inspired by permaculture, surrealist art, ashram life, physical and mental self sustainability is the goal. After 3 years of observation of what happens in the wild with a open group of outernational people without rules , we are now going to experiment a more schematized living pattern, on the guidelines of ashram organization, with established timetable for activities to be respected.
