Vegan Eco Community in the south of Europe

When vegans dream alone it is only a dream. But when many vegans dream together it is the beginning of a new vegan reality.

Invitation to create together a vegan eco-community

We are a group of committed vegans originally from Spain, Mexico, Germany and France. We share a dream of living in harmony with our Mother Earth and all the beings on this planet. We are looking for people who are single, couples and families who want to create, together with us, an eco-village in the countryside, no more than 50km away from a small city. 

The main idea is not only to live in complete self-sufficiency - providing our own source of sustainable energy, our own food and water - but also to live as a single family in which all the members treat each other as brothers and sisters without separation or discrimination. This vision of unity begins with bringing together those who share the same values.

The Eco-village will function independently from the grid. Construction ideas will begin with the question of how we can live in harmony with our environment.

We dream of an Eco-village that will function without money. Within the community no service or goods are sold, there will be no money invovled and no bartering. Instead we want to share everything we have from materialistic stuff, knowledge, wisdom and skills. We dream of living entirely by sharing with one another, creating webs of contact with other eco-villages in order to get all that we need, share all that we have. We believe in the law of universe: You receive what you give.

We dream of a vegan Eco-village where no animals are enslaved or exploited. (That said, anybody would obviously be free to eat what they want while outside the community.)

We dream of a Permaculture design: growing our own food according to the laws of nature, applying techniques borrowed from Permaculture or Fukuoka, creating water circuits for irrigation, composts, dry toilets, biodigestors etc...

We dream of houses made out of love, local resources (adobe, clay, wood, stones), and recycled materials (megaposters, tires, canvas,...) The goal is to use only natural materials found in the region. For elements that cannot be found in nature but are needed for a functioning house (such as, pipes, washing machines, hoses, windows, doors, furniture, tiles, tools, shower, water plug) we will use only recycled materials.

We dream of old recyceld solar panels who were going to be wasted and instead continue to provide clean free energy. Further we want to explore new ways of creating renewable energies by harvesting the wind, the rain, biomas and the sun in order to provide the entire community with enough gas and energy.

We dream of a community where children are raised in an atmosphere of respect and peace towards each other, mother nature and all living beings.

We dream of a free school without classes and grades. Instead we want to learn from the kids, discover the world through their pure eyes and in return offer them a wide range of non-formal learning methods. We are all teachers and we want this space to be a huge university where each square meter is an opportunity to learn.

We dream of creating a center for sharing peace and awareness - a place where everybody is a master and a student alike; a platform to share wisdom, knowledge, curiosity, innovative practices and empathy with one other - in order to form a peaceful, creative and vibrating melting pot of people thriving for human evolution.

We dream of a place which is open to everyone, any nationality, any belief. We will hold regular work camps, conferences and offer the opportunity for volunteers to learn and share their talents, ideas, and abilities.

We dream of a community that strives towards non-hierarchical structures, where everybody is a leader, and where decisions are taken in a group process so that everyone feels responsible and wants to be part of a rotating system for communal tasks.

We dream of beginning in an abandoned village, an old farm house, or an empty field and building our own eco houses. We don't plan to buy a piece of land. Instead, we dream of someone (a farmer, an individual or family, government etc.) who cedes his/her property to the community with the objective to create a thriving example of sustainable communal living. Once alive, we dream of a public outreach program aimed at encouraging others to follow our example.

This dream is not unique. We know many share it and we invite you to connect with us to dream and work together. There are no rules defined, we are open to any proposition... unity prevails over everything!
