Join us in an adventure like no other

Hey everyone! I want to tell you about an incredible project I'm participating in.

It all started because of an awesome online Permaculture Certificate Course I'm taking. I'm just a few months into it (it's one year long) but it's totally rEvolutionized my way of learning and feeling, and also knowing how much useful stuff I can do in the world.
Online might sound like 'theory-only' but in fact it's all about action, so it's helping everyone be much more effective and improve their environments.
As for me, I've been transforming my roof-top garden as I build a support-group with all the other students (they're awesome people) and plan for my next projects, and recently I even got to be helping to design and manage an incredible project I'm cocreating with one of the teachers and a few other people.

The project is called GaiaSis, and it's basically a rEvolutionary form of action-learning research in Integral Permaculture, along the lines of a permaculture boot-camp with a bit of BigBrother, like a weird (and extremely productive) adventure experience, and you get to help in building an EcoVillage and become share-holders of it as well, if you want. This year it will be based in a Permaculture EcoVillage they're building in the Canary Islands (Spain), next door to me (I'm on another island).
You can take a look at our site here, at (you have everything there, but if you need something else, you can write us at ).
If you want the basic information, you have our leaflet here, and you can join our mail list (and receive more information, a manual and the application form) here.

I can't wait to finish off my university degree this summer so I can get on to GaiaSis3 (the third session). This is such a great and exciting opportunity! So I wanted to tell you all about it, because I thought you guys would love it too. Oh, by the way, the first challenge, GaiaSis1 starts very soon (enrollment is until the end of January).
Don't miss this opportunity if you want to put into practice everything you've learned about permaculture so far, or wish you had learned, in a deep-dive kind of way. But mind that it's only for the very adventurous

And maybe our overlord likes the idea and can make use of it too, hehe.
Oh, and how about Paul does a podcast with these people? They've done lots of interesting stuff.

Interested in volunteering, EcoJobs and Permaculture hands-on learning?

Wow...that is really neat. I will have to look into this more. Thank you so much for the link, I never heard of GaiaSis before.

No land yet, but growing what I can with what I have!
