Mission of Ecoforest Education for Sustainability is to develop
and expand our work from our first eco-education project in southern
Spain. Alongside education and the provision of information on naturally
healthy and sustainable lifestyles, we intend to create eco-education
projects and communities around the world where a simple, naturally
healthy and sustainable lifestyle is normal.
These Ecoforest 'paradise gardens' will be places where residents
and volunteers sustain themselves in ways which also sustain and
enhance the environment for generations to come. They will be places
that people can visit and learn that living in harmony with nature
and each other is not only possible, but also a beautiful, nurturing
and fulfilling way to live.
Education for Sustainability is a non-profit organisation and is registered
as an affiliated project of the Permaculture Association (UK), with the
of public education particularly by the promotion of knowledge in
the field of:
vegan-organic agriculture, horticulture, and permaculture.
Ecoforest is a charitable (non-profit) organisation set up to provide
education about living and working in simple, natural, sustainable and
has created a unique situation where people can live, learn and visit
in a natural, healthy sustainable way. This unique ecological micro-climate
is special to those who live here for ecological, health and spiritual
reasons. It is a beacon of positivity for many people that has changed
lives by providing inspiration, education and support.
these first years of the project before deciding on locations for more
permanent dwellings we are living in tents, domes, tepees etc. In the
meantime we are rebuilding the main house, observing the land and weather
patterns, researching drought tolerant, soil improving trees and shrubs,
composting, swaling, planting lots of salad plants, fruit trees and establishing
the forest gardens to create a multi-levelled edible eco-system.
The trustees and project members feel that Ecoforest will have significant
and increasing value as a demonstration of environmental sustainability
in many areas, particularly the agricultural and residential sector where
environmental damage is reaching immense proportions. We intend to demonstrate
that food can be produced by families and communities, and by farmers,
all around the world without destruction of the natural environment -
thus also making people more economically self-reliant and offering a
positive alternative to globalisation trends. We believe this is of great
interest to the general public who now favour a more balanced, healthier,
safer and natural environment. The project's purpose is to live and grow
food in an environmentally sound way ourselves, demonstrating and teaching
this to others. We welcome donations and grants to help us in this work
- and to help us acquire more land/property for this purpose, whilst running
the project as a charity.
