I´m learning how to live in harmony with my surroundings, incorporating permaculture thinking in my routines...
It is possible to share this circumstances with other people so that everyone can benefit from it!
I live in a valley where there's is a main permaculture project, a school (unschool), communal gardens, several homesteads and lots of unspoiled nature to wonder around!
Most people here are interested in sharing experiences, knowledge and genuine moments...
The idea is to help in the development of this non intentional community and at the same time share with others the special feeling that comes from being here...
Playing music is also a big parte of the sharing...
Cooking / shopping
Help with Eco project
Help in the house
One can benefit from a cultural exchange by doing it! here there is no set culture... it is more like counterculture.
Here one can have a feeling that words cannot reach...
silence can be appreciated...
