Vision

Permaculture Center. School and trampoline to promote a truly sustainable rural development, an ecovillage. To do it in an integrated way with the neighbors of the Vall de Laguar, to connect and facilitate different settlements that arise around us.

And regarding the resources, to put in value their great diversity that is already here and the ones that we are gradually generating, mainly biological and agricultural (such as orchard, cherry, almond, citrus …).

Also doing it by forging the very alive human networks that inhabit the region of La Marina Alta.
