Project Summary

In the mountains of Cocorná, Antioquia, Colombia, after 8 years of operation of the eco hotel www.tierradeagua.org, 10 hectares of land are freed to welcome 15 families to develop an ecovillage.

Project Description

My family, Dayana and Adán, is the first to join Natalia, Camilo, and their children Celeste and Salomón in the development of 10 hectares of land, keeping in mind the permaculture ethics and priciples.

We  have 10 ha in organic sugar cane plantation, 10 ha pasture that are being turned into food forest, and a commercial front that is the ecohotel, which we plan to further develop with an eCooperative Farm, involving our neighbors.

Alcohol production, aquaponics,  aquaculture, chicken, and organic produce are our priority.

We use bamboo and cob as our building material and hydro power is on our to do list.

Volunteers and partners welcome.

We work weekly with the communitie´s children school colearning biodynamic farming, and we have our own Rainbow Workshop house for  deeper education in arts and crafts.


We were kicked out of this project in november 2014 with a one day limit to do so. They said I had betrayed the trust embedded in me and that I was turning the staff against the owners of the project. Although I was the only person in the whole project with any environmental knowledge, vegeatrian cokking knowledge and bilingual to receive guests not to mention work ethic. The promise to work for a piece of land was broken and a year of my work and my wife's was lost. We have moved back to Medellín with her parents for a month with no balcony, patio, or natural contact, and from we moved to an old abandoned house in a small town called Ricaurte where we have done permaculture to restore the house and estabish a garden in the small backyard the last 6 monthd january to june. For the last 2 months we have found a bigger farm at www.vitallspa.com and on the 6 ha of the property we are now doing permaculuture again on a bigger scale. I will start a new project to post on this page as soon as I have pictures and more details.

Legend of Badges

Note: The various badges displayed in people profiles are largely honesty-based self-proclamations by the individuals themselves. There are reporting functions users can use if they know of blatant misrepresentation (for both people and projects). Legitimacy, competency and reputation for all people and projects can be evidenced and/or developed through their providing regular updates on permaculture work they’re involved in, before/after photographs, etc. A spirit of objective nurturing of both people and projects through knowledge/encouragement/inspiration/resource sharing is the aim of the Worldwide Permaculture Network.



A member is a permaculturist who has never taken a PDC course. These cannot become PDC teachers. Members may be novice or highly experienced permaculturists or anywhere in between. Watch their updates for evaluation.

PRI Teacher

With the exception of the ‘Member’ who has never taken a PDC, all of the above can apply to become a PRI PDC Teacher. PRI PDC Teachers are those who the PRI recognise, through a vetting board, as determined and competent to teach the full 72-hour course as developed by Permaculture founder Bill Mollison – covering all the topics of The Designers’ Manual as well as possible (i.e. not cherry picking only aspects the teacher feels most interested or competent in). Such teachers also commit to focussing on the design science, and not including subjective spiritual/metaphysical elements. The reason these items are not included in the PDC curriculum is because they are “belief” based. Permaculture Design education concerns itself with teaching good design based on strategies and techniques which are scientifically provable.

PRI PDC Teachers may be given teaching and/or consultancy offerings as they become available as the network grows.
