  • Descripción


    This is an ecoproject started in 2020 by a small group of young people and set as a place for the organization in order to implement exchanges, trainings, seminars and host volunteers.
    After the crisis of COVID 19, we realized that the way of living in cities was really stressful, without any purpose and without any sense of sustainability.
    So we decided to move to the village Makra Logka where one of the founders of our project, originates from. We changed completely our life and now we try to create in our land, a small core of sustainability, by permaculture design, food forest, building with natural ways, DIY projects and empowering the local community.

    Some of its main objectives are natural building, natural farming, recycling, respect for nature and reducing the ecological footprint. All of the facilities are natural building structures made from stone, wood with low to zero ecological footprint. In terms of production possibilities, the land provides us with chestnuts, walnuts, plums,
    quinces and a vegetable garden for vegetable production.

    We are envisioning a space where young people, adults from different countries live together, work together and create together by harvesting the land, nourishing the mind, feeding the soul and body with joy and creativity, mutual respect and equality.
    A key element of our philosophy is the dedication to learning the importance of a social cause, of encouraging experience while evolving as a unit and as a group, thus serving as catalysts for the improvement of our wider society.

    We believe in:
    ● Preserving or using what nature so selflessly provides, without intervening too much.
    ● Producing our own food from traditional seeds with traditional cropping methods and natural intervention when production problems arise (plant illnesses, natural disasters, etc.)
    ● Taking action when it comes to knowledge, harmonious relationships, mental health, well-being, balance and harmony of body and soul.
    ● Respecting and learning the story of our land.

    The location is an excellent opportunity for us to organize workshops about sustainability and ecolife. We aim to create the essential conditions for the awakening of knowledge in Greek and foreign groups of young people.
