About Karina Starnes

I've grown up in Germany and been living in Switzerland for the last 7+ years where I've been working as a graphicdesigner until recently. I'm interested in Yoga, Nature and peace-work. I've heard about permaculture around ten years ago and since then wanted to create a place in a tropical country according to those principles.

In 2013, my husband Sam and I have bought 6 acres of land close to the rainforest reserve Sinharaja in Sri Lanka. We have started to create a self-sustainable Farm, planted 1000 native trees and are going to attend a Permaculture Design Course soon.

Our land was part of an abandoned tea estate and our plan is to reforest the land by creating a fruit forest. We would like to give people a peaceful place to stay in natural houses, off the grid and where one can experience nature, practice meditation/yoga and find peace.

So far, we have build one mudhouse for us and are about to finish our first guest house. We're looking for people who want to come and help us with building cobhouses and create a new community.
