Hello Permies!

This is Vidya writing on behalf of all our Danyadara community, a non-for-profit permaculture farm located in Southern Spain. We are quite new in permies.com (also we are quite new ourselves).

We started a beautiful permaculture project a year ago with design around the land of a world-class yoga retreat centre. We planted thousands of trees and created a garden that feeds the kitchen of the centre. So far we can see great progress in the landscape but it is very localized and small-scale. This year we want to kickstart something that will have a bigger impact so we are launching ourselves into transforming a 7 hectare field that was previously used (and abused) for wheat in an industrial agriculture model.

Our goal is to create an abundant food forest that will regenerate the land and inspire the local community. It is a philanthropic project that runs on donations only so we count on our friends to spread the word and putting us on the map so we can buy the trees, create the rainwater harvesting infrastructure, build the greenhouse and run the project.

Well, apparently they are well established.

I wonder how that bigger project went.
