An ecovillage for nature lovers
The “Eco village Piracanga” came forth from a dream. A dream of a group of people to create a place to live and work in harmony with nature and with the intention to use every opportunity to grow in consciousness and in deep respect for our self and every body and everything around us. The “Eco village Piracanga” functions in a strong relationship with the Center for Art and Human development “Piracanga”, a Center were people can learn and experience the miracle of life in an inspiring environment. People from over 20 different nationalities and a large brazilian majority are part of the Eco Village family . Our ecological village has been constructed with local materials like “piacava”, wood, adobe and other materials, which are found in the region.
We use solar and wind energy for electricity and hot water supply and all septic tanks are ecological. We have a biological garden to produce our own vegetables and fruits following the permaculture system.
We have a holistic school for the children of the inhabitants and the local communities with students from the age of 3 till 18 years old, free school Piracanga. We are protecting a tropical virgin rain forest of 70 hectares with trees of more than 1000 years old which borders the back of the village and makes part of the Center.
The “Eco village Piracanga” is situated next to the Center Piracanga, 150 meters from a virgin beach and the river Piracanga.
Piracanga makes part of the protected nature resort “peninsula Marau” and is 6 km away from the lively town “Itacare” with its many delicious restaurants, capoeira, music and many surf beaches.
