Hello travelers, my name is Socratis. With the help of other fellow humans i am creating a little self sufficient bubble outside the village of Amargeti, Paphos.
We build with natural materials, grow food by the principles of natural farming, collect rainwater, regenerate the soil and the ecosystems and generally try to practise harmonious-to the rules of nature living.
We have managed to have 3 sleeping units by now. The one made out of cob, (main building), one made out of wood and one with wattle and daub and compressed earth blocks. We are now in the process of building a big communal kitchen where we can gather and a workshop for all sorts of microprojects.
We take care of many olive and almond trees and some other trees that are in the property.
We would love to host people who are interested in natural building, natural farming and generally sustainability and natural living. If not, we welcome anyone who is willingbto learn.
We enjoy hosting responsible, reliable and independent people.
