Dear you!!!

After the last snow melted, yellow, white and purple flowers appear everywhere, big black bees are already scouting for calendula flowers that survived the frost and the first lizards are sunbathing on the rocks.

This summer Liveloula will be hosting several workshops, retreats and an erasmus internship. Also you can just come and have some time to switch off and tune into nature.

Liveloula is in spring mode, bursting with energy! Like a dragonfly looking for the waters to multiply, we are offering the grounds to multiply the knowledge we’ve built up so far and offer a space to immerse in nature!

Staying and learning in Liveloula is nurturing the soul, mind and belly! It involves a lot of joy, slowing down, whilst being super active and leaving the place with a lot of knowledge and happy memories.

In the last years Liveloula transformed to become a center for experience and learning about natural living and permaculture. We have now created the capacity for individuals but also groups to stay with us in our cozy Mongolian yurt or in the new spacious glamping tents.

The wish is to share our piece of magic with like minded people that would love to learn about natural living or with those that are looking for a place to be close to nature, but still like to have comfort and community within reach!

We hope to see you back at some point, maybe even this year, this is the first announcement of the 10 year celebration that we are going to have in the first weekend of September.

For now it would be very helpful and appreciated if you can share in your circes our flyer with the workshops and the internship.

If anyone comes to mind that would enjoy staying in our yurt or in one of our glamping tents, please feel free to share our contact details.

Love Does Not Imply Pacifism

Years ago I spoke with the wonderful philosopher and writer Kathleen Dean Moore about why calling the earth our mother is not always helpful.

“I think the whole ‘love your mother’ metaphor is just wishful thinking. Mothers can usually be counted on to clean up after their children. They are warm-hearted and forgiving: mothers will follow crying children to their rooms and stroke their hair, even if the child’s sorrow is shame at his treatment of his mother. It’s nice to think the Earth is a mother who will come after us and clean up the mess and protect us from our mistakes, and then forgive us the monstrous betrayal. But even mothers can be worn out and used up. And then what happens to her children?”

Greenhouses are usually glazed structures, but are typically expensive to construct and heat throughout the winter. A much more affordable and effective alternative to glass greenhouses is the walipini (an Aymara Indian word for a “place of warmth”), also known as an underground or pit greenhouse. First developed over 20 years ago for the cold mountainous regions of South America, this method allows growers to maintain a productive garden year-round, even in the coldest of climates.
