Hariharalaya Permaculture & EcoVillage Development
Starting May 2012, the Hariharalaya Retreat Center community is coming together to bring abundance to life through the practice of permaculture.
We are engaging in the process of designing and creating an ecovillage embodying the ethics of Permaculture, renewing our relationship with Earth and each other. With the intention of cultivating our living connection with the landscape to activate the abundance nature has to give, Hariharalaya community is focusing on developing creatively integrated ways to inhabit the planet.
Hariharalaya has recently annexed the land and structures adjacent to the healing retreat and we are currently beginning the process of transforming the three Khmer houses and rice paddy into an fully integrated ecovillage and healing landscape alive with edible, medicinal, and native plants.
We are designing and creating a beautiful and abundant human habitat in which all of the products of our life feed the gardens and the regeneration process of the land, the fruits of which will nourish the human community at Hariharalaya.
We offer many opportunities to join our community to participate in the Ecovillage creation join us in exploring sustainable solutions that express our inherent connection to the earth.
