I recently took part in the Conscious Earth's Food Forest course and absolutely loved it. First off, the location is stunning and idyllic. Remote and in the mountains, it is peaceful with the most wonderful views. Secondly, our teacher, Stacey, was an excellent teacher, thorough and super knowledgeable.
Our 30,000m2 patch of Andalucian countryside was once farmed solely for Almonds. Untouched by human hands for decades. Although the soil is free from pesticides the nutritional values were depleted by mono crop farming. We wish to take our land back to nature, back to a forest.
A Food Forest.
Our Food Forest is growing, incorporating & combining. ......
fruit trees & shrubs, bushes, ground covers, vines & legume trees & plants to grow together symbiotically.
We hope to inspire local farmers to change their own traditional farming methods to help to encourage by example, to help Andalucia.
By using Permaculture principles we have begun to rejuvenate the land.
We are Conscious Earth Permaculture Farm
- we are Beyond Organic!
Many large Organic farms that sell to supermarkets still use a mono crop system, smaller local Organic farmers usually use some kind of Organic Pesticide, we are beyond this, by mixing our plants we create a biodiversity not found in most Organic farms. We are constantly reinstating our nutrients by allowing our trees & plants to biodegrade, we replenish the soil. We don’t just pump the water from our Aquifers, as some farms do, we have put in place systems to collect and preserve our water supply. We recycle our water, we ensure we lose as little as possible from evaporation.
CONSCIOUS EARTH PERMACULTURE FARM & VILLA DE VIDA CANNOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY LOSS OR INJURY ON ANY OF OUR COURSES OR RETREATS.
