Earth ecovillage is an initiative for experiencing an ecological way of life.
It was established in 2009. We work to farm our land with ecological methods to offer an alternative to conventional farming methods which harm the weather, soil and air.
Our goal is to be self-sufficient by producing organic vegetables and fruits, and to enhance the surounding environment using permaculture methods. We construct our village structures with local materials and ecologically informed architecture.
We are striving to make our village a place where people can feel at home, relying on help from our volunteers. Our door is open to anyone interested in these efforts. We prepare many courses and seminars about ecological way of living.
Participation is free of charge for all activities except for the trainings. We seek to fund all other activities with gift and donation culture. Our cuisine is vegetarian, but we don’t forget vegans.
