Giardino della Gioia

We are an ecovillage called Giardino della Gioia, that would like to become a community. There is already enough structure to host 10 people, we have 3 yurts, 1 straw house, 1 caravan, 1 tipi, a draft of treehouse, 4 compost toilets, a kitchen, a meditation circus and a bathroom with sauna, but right now we are just two! All are built with natural material and with the principles of permaculture. We live in an olive garden in a National Park in front of the Adriatic coast (800m walk), the energetic line of San Michele pass through this area, and you can feel it. We consider this place as a healing place, that invites us to work on the awakening of consciousness and to work on yourself.

This project has a lot of potentials but needs energy to evolve.

In this 6 years many people have given their energy and together we worked to try to find new concepts for relationships, based on trust and transparency. We believe in gift economy when it is possible, the community provides the basic things, the rest is left to a private creativity. We try to be self-sufficient and we make courses in the summer. We have solar panels where we get all our energy, a solar kitchen and we have a well for the water, though it is a little bit salty and we take drinkable water from the city, 16 km from us.

We try to create awareness amongst people around us, such as the environmental problems, cleaning the beach each summer, and we also try to produce as less garbage as possible in our daily lives. We like to do yoga and meditation, but we are not stuck on a specific but are open to trying different techniques. We believe in the way of the circle to share and take decisions and we are also trying to introduce sociocracy and we would like to work on emotions with the forum.

We try to live life with healthy values without drugs and alcohol (there is a smoking area for transition) we are vegetarian almost vegan.

This is what we have achieved until now, all the rest we will develop together.

The ecovillage needs to be lived, everything is here, waiting for you and your energy.
