We are an international community of peace workers, community organizers and ecovillage activists developing a popular education center and intentional community on an organic farm in central Italy. Our space is a rennovated 13th century “borgo” of stone buildings divided into independent apartments on 27 acres in the foothills of the Appenine mountains in the Emilia Romagna region, developed as an “agriturismo.” We generate 75kw of solar power, recycle rainwater and greywater through passive filtration and irrigation systems, and have maintained organic certification and a weather station for over 10 years. We are trained group facilitators, permaculture designers, and conflict mediators. We have supported grassroots community network building through projects like the Helping the Helpers Training, a trauma awareness program for people working with migrants in Europe. We support our work through outside consulting in progressive causes including the Global Ecovillage Network, as well as increasing emphasis on transitioning hospitality and farm activities for financial sustainability of the community. We are still definitely in formation and welcome visitors and prospective members.
