Li’s vision stretches beyond permaculture designs and sustainable living. We aim at reestablishing the connection between the culture and habitats we currently live in and the ones we previously cherished before we moved into an excessive and demanding lifestyle.
The more we observe that fact, the more we realize that nature does not tolerate excess. Our nature as beings reached a point where it has traded abundance for excess. Infinite growth is destructive, sustainability is balance.
We receive by giving, first the luxury of a retreat to raw nature, to learning different concepts (in local communities, schools, researchers. summer campers, practitioners, nature lovers, and curious observers) from organic planting, to harvesting, to eco building, to social responsibility ; A space for workshops/talks, hands-on experience where people can shape ideas, knowledge & skills.
Workshops raise curiosity, results create initiative in others, and more results create a trend and then a momentum.
We are neither a venture nor a venue, we are somehow collaborators of change, and we are learning that along the way, all channels tend to have an impact directly or indirectly.
The project started with a series of workshops hosted by local and international people, starting with vermin-compost toilets to a cob oven, wood working and finally the building of an earth bag dome hobbit house
The idea was to teach others the process of building one’s own house with minimum cost from limited resources they can acquire from their own land. Smart and simple systems can be installed (passive solar, gray water, rocket mass heater ...) that would allow them to benefit more from nature's abundance as an alternative to investing money and thus time to pay unnecessary bills.
Our vision aims at making a difference while interacting with nature, by substituting nature’s exploitation with nature’s appreciation.
We are a natural lab inspired by the spirit and techniques of permaculture to provide an educational space where people can reconnect to nature, learn sustainable farming, building & living techniques, and further spread this knowledge into their communities.
