"Often in the middle of nowhere is where you find yourself" 

Remotely located in the Tiras mountain range we founded our Permaculture Project.

We aim to create a better future by learning about alternative (renewable) ways of living.

Besides the satellite internet, we are 100% off grid. We have some of the finest and cleanest drinking water and loads of wildlife and domestic animals, which make the location a good place for anyone that really wants to get in touch with nature.


The project was Founded in 2018 to create a better life for future generations by teaching alternative ways of living and greening the desert. We are creating a model of a productive system for people from all over the world to come and enjoy and learn from and with us.
