For the whole family

A day at a very inspiring permaculture farm full of unforgettable surprises for big, small and medium. Depending on the group (more beginners, professionals of the sector, with majority of adolescents or children) more or less demonstrative practices will be made, and, the theoretical explanatory part, will be more or less technical.

Good for the environment

This route of „slow tourism“ with small groups and in a rural environment of the Axarquia of Malaga, is designed to generate the minimum impact between the community of people who inhabit it, and the Nature around which they are hosted. In addition, all the food and gifts offered to the visitor are organically produced, vegan and as local and seasonal as possible.

Educational and environmental awareness tour

Seeing, hearing, touching, smelling and feeling why certain practices collaborate to take care of the planet, while we take care of people, will be an unforgettable sensory experience that will help us understand why we have reached the state of declared climate emergency and reflect on what we can do to reverse the situation in our daily lives; at home, school, work, holidays, etc.

SENSORY JOURNEY

„Learning with the 7 senses about Permaculture and its advantages for humans, their environment, and the next 7 generations“, is a sensory journey that immerses the visitor in an integral life project; an invitation to co-create a better future.

„Eco-Experience on an Inspiring Sustainable Permaculture Farm“, is without a doubt, a very inspiring educational route that will captivate and make us reflect on the simple solutions that we can implement in our daily lives – at home, at work or on the farm – to live more in tune with Nature; contributing, at the same time, to do our bit to reverse the state of climatic emergency and minimize our ecological footprint.

Through the explanation and vision of different regenerative practices -compost, edible forests, etc.-, techniques of water retention in the landscape -Swales- and recycling of grey water, the visitor will develop the 7th sense, -the capacity to recognize which practices and actions are in our hands and contribute to a better world; besides receiving a holistic formation in the world of Permaculture and sustainability.
