    Description

    This Community Centre is located at the edge of a medieval village in Southern Tuscany. This Centre is the cornerstone of an initiative to regenerate and revitalise the local village into a thriving Intentional Community. Our pilot project in Italy is a land-based academy and healing centre dedicated to ethically, environmentally and socially responsible living.
