 FOOD FOREST

Permaculture

Lalaland’s “lung” is our agricultural project.

This area is divided into horticulture and orchards following the permaculture principles.

Our Mission is focused on supplying our community with fruits and veggies while regenerating our land towards a fertile carbon absorber and oxygen producer.

During our Permaculture Design Courses, We take care & Upgrade this area while learning by doing.

We have planted biodiverse types of fruit trees and tree crops to support each other.

BEHIND THIS PROJECT

our vision and mission

Strengthen conscience for the circle of life:
we go from preparing the soil for planting (e.g. by enriching it with our dry toilet compost;), until preparing and eating together, for eventually restarting the cycle again that proactively regenerates this land substantially.
Like this, we want to change our own consumption behavior plus invite and inspire others to walk a similar path.
The more and more humans overthink and change their consumption behavior in similar ways, the higher are our chances for tackling the macro-ecological, economical and social challenges ahead.
