After 5 years of experience with the Terra Purna project, we want to follow the journey. We rescued these 2 ha of land from abandonment and erosion and implemented a permaculture design, that includes landscape and social elements. This time here has been an amazing opportunity of learning and we are very thankful of every single moment we passed here in connection with nature and the community around. We have reached a high level of resilience. We consider ourselves as the pioneers that set the stage for the next custodians that want to be part of this eco-social succession. It is the time to allow succession to happen.
Until now Terra Purna was a family based project, including two adults and two children. We consider Terra Purna as an integral life experience, we use permaculture and the social economy as major tools, trying to develop a resilient way of life synchronized with the natural cycles. We also investigate techniques to live in frugal abundance tending toward zero waste.
Elements of Terra Purna merge in a flower with 5 petals.
