The Décentrale property on Mont-Soleil, Switzerland is the home of no one and the part-time home of many. It is an open space used by many projects that are self-organised through the Synergiehub. The property is owned by the non-profit Permavillages association, administered by the Coopérative Décentrale and is itself self-organised through the Synergiehub as well.
At the heart of the one hectare property, an old art-nouveau villa houses up to 16 people in dormitories and provides workshop rooms, the kitchen and social living space. The surrounding park offers additional shelter during the summer in the form of tiny houses, caravan, tipi and yurt. The mix of park trees, open meadows and forest provide a good opportunity to develop an edible forest garden.
The Synergiehub is an open network that invites you to participate in projects for fair economy, grassroots governance, free education and citizen journalism. The projects include activities in the domains of agriculture, housing, health and technology. We strive to co-create a future that embraces Permaculture principles in all aspects of life.
Wherever you are, at home or on the road, you are where you need to, to be involved. We work glocally around the world and from the Décentrale, an old art-nouveau villa that you can come and stay at and make your part-time home.
We accept Fairo, so you can also pay in FairCoin. The FairCoin is the proof-of-cooperation crypto-currency that serves as medium of exchange and store of value in the fair economy. More information here : https://fair-coin.org/
