Events
The life in the community

Everyday we work together on specific projects in the community. The work includes different tasks, such as permaculture, construction or helping in the kitchen depending on the programme you choose. 

 

In the afternoon you can enjoy your free time by swimming in the river, relaxing or participating in different workshops like Kogui weaving, yoga, sharing circles and many more.

 

At night we spend the evening together in the Maloka with fire, sharing words and music.

 

It is important to us that everyone staying in the community values to live in harmony with each other and nature. With coming here you are part of the family and that is how we treat each other. We want you to feel at home and invite you to come with an open heart and mind. We ask you for open communication and treating each other with respect.

Our programmes
Permaculture 
Programme

Lasting 14 days, the invitation is to come and live Permaculture as a lifestyle choice at our beautiful Eco-Community, sharing meals and sacred spaces together as a family, whilst connecting deeply with the essence of Permaculture across 4 different projects on the same mountain.

  • We work 5 hours a day, 5 days per week (Saturdays and Sundays are off).

  • We start work in the morning after breakfast around 8.30 am and finish at 1.30 pm.  

  • You stay in a dorm or a private room (upon request) and receive three healthy and delicious vegetarian or vegan meals per day. 

  • The contribution for the program is 85.000 COP per night. Other accommodation options available at other rates.

  • Arrival every Friday and Sunday before 4 pm

The programme offers a unique opportunity to come and study deeply the wisdom contained within the underlying principles of Permaculture. 

During these 14 days, you will:

  • evolve as a human being

  • feel more connected to yourself, nature, and everyone and everything in your life, 

  • have the skills, knowledge, and confidence to apply the teachings to land all over the world

  • become a huge asset to humanity as you actively work towards regenerating Planet Earth, working in harmony with her rather than against her

What our recent visitors say about
the Permaculture programme

When I came to Sierra Nevada I did not really plan to do a permaculture course, but I met Steve at the right time and the course found me. We had a wonderful time together, creating with the Earth and really seeing big changes. We built beds and terraces, planted trees, harvested fruits and yuca and visited other permaculture projects and had good chats with good cacao together. 

What I liked a lot, was the balance between teaching the scientific part and talking about the philosophy behind. We learned which components you need to give our soils and plants. Also it was part of the course to learn about the principles of permaculture and involve them in your daily life. I understood that permaculture is more than just a sustainable way of agriculture - it’s a way of connecting to nature deeply. 
During the course we also spent time together to connect to each other and ourselves. Steve created a place where there is space for everything. He really took good care of us. He made us laugh every day, gave us energy with his endless motivation and he gave us time to rest, when we needed it. Thank you for the great experience. You make a beautiful job, go on and spread permaculture love in the world.

The teaching methodology is very practical in style because it is felt that the best teacher is Mother Earth - the more time spent with our hands and feet in her, the greater the opportunity for learning.

 

Alongside the practical work, there is ample time for discussion and communication around the themes being explored. There will be sacred fires and sharing circles to help us connect and share knowledge and wisdom. 


On a technical level, we explore:
  • Capturing and storing energy as a bedrock for a permaculture system using many techniques including banana circles, Vetiver, check dams, and terraces

  • water harvesting

  • moon calendar study

  • agroforestry for regenerating degraded soils

  • the alchemy of Bocashi compost

and much more...

 

We host Perma Cinema regularly to find inspiration and motivation in other projects. We also like to take groups on field trips to other projects nearby our farm to see Permaculture in action on other lands.

The Programme is open to anyone who feels the calling from inside to connect more deeply with the Earth. From this willingness, we have a great opportunity to go very deep and download incredible new ways of living and co-curating together with Mother Earth.

“My wish for humanity is that we find our way home, that we find the opportunity within ourselves to connect to Mother Earth, to put our hands inside the Earth and reconnect with the One That Gives Us Everything We Need. It is with absolute faith and belief that when we plug into the vibration of Mother Earth through this practice of being with her over a small period of time, we will remember ourselves as being born from this Earth, and from there, much magic happens! Everything is taken care of, we have returned home safely and can be good guardians of this magical planet we now call home.” (Steve – 2024)

Moon
programme 
  • We work 5 hours a days, 5 days per week (Saturdays and Sundays are off).

  • We start work in the morning after breakfast around 8.30 am and finish at 1.30 pm.  

  • You stay in a dorm or a private room (upon request) and receive three healthy and delicious vegetarian or vegan meals per day. 

  • The contribution for the program is 70.000 COP per night. Other accommodation options available at other rates.

  • Arrival every Friday and Sunday before 4 pm

For this programme we invite you to stay with us for four weeks corresponding to one moon cycle. Hence we will have enough time to work and grow together and learn from each other. However, if you do not have time to stay with us for four weeks, we invite to stay with us at least for two weeks.

The work includes:
  • Permaculture activities, such as planting trees, preparing beds, composting, watering plants, collecting harvest

  • Construction of different objects and buildings for the farm

  • Helping around the kitchen 


Despite working with the moon and the seasons, we will try to find tasks that suit your strengths and interests.

 

You are more than welcome to share your gifts or talents, such as yoga or breathwork sessions or any kinds of workshops while you stay with us. Typically we offer a variety of different events and workshops throughout the week, such as weaving circles, sharing circles, Temazcal and many more.

Who is this program suitable for:
  • People who are exploring the world and want to connect deeper with themselves.

  • People who want to experience community life and get in touch with nature. 

  • People who want to grow, learn and work, knowing that the work can be physically demanding from time to time. (We believe that this is part of the growing process as well 🙂)

Long-term stay

If you have already been through one of the programmes and would like spend more time in our community, we invite you for a long-term stay.

The support we ask for during your stay will be something we can agree on together. The money is used to have an abundance of food, for living costs and reinvestments into the land.

The programme is suitable for you if you:

 

  • Have the motivation to be a part of the community and want to take on more responsibility for the farm and the family.

  • Want to deepen your connection to the land, the work, the tribes and the family.

  • Want to learn more about permaculture, construction, art and more.

  • Want to stay in one place for a longer period to get a sense of home.

  • Are maybe seriously thinking about having your own farm and you want to gather some inspiration!
