We’re not the only ones who need extra blankets in winter...
Today our permaculture students are protecting the trees with a layer of mulch.
This mulch insulates the soil helping to provide a buffer from the big temperature fluctuations we get here at this time of year.
Mulch also retains water helping to keep the tree roots moist.
The manure they’re using will give our precious trees a nutrient boost too!
Things are shaping up fast! 🌱
This is our latest natural building project - turning a neglected swimming pool into a beautiful eco casa for staff to live in 🏡😍
We’re using as many materials that already exist locally as possible, keeping costs and impact on the planet low. 🌱
The lovely mosaic you see appearing is made of tiles left over from previous building work, and will give a long lasting, moisture-resistant finish.
Keep following us to see this project evolve! 🌱
Is there anything better than good company?
We are not alone, even if it feels like it sometimes.
For me, good friendship means 💥 feeling like the best of me comes out and leaves me energised 😜 being able to play silly buggers
🤦♀️ being able to share my down moments as well as my happy ones, and be accepted “warts and all”
🌺 being able to just hang out and watch the world go by, without having to have exciting plans 🥂 having people who celebrate my wins as hard or harder than I do!
What do your friends bring to your life? 🤗🌺🍻🐶
About the sacred valley of Perú.
Yes, it is a very beautiful valley and maybe we personally just have another expectation of „sacred“… Hm. Could be. For me all the pesticides, the houses of cement, all the electric wires across the valley, the very polluted river Urubamba you would not want to bath in…
Like… I can definitely see why the valley is sacred, it´s a special climate, it might have some sort of spiritual meaning and stuff..
Maybe people are just not treating it „sacredly“… :/ At the same time, I see a lot of people doin a change.. a big, big community of organic gardeners, nature curious people, natural building lovers and other wise alternative interested people are creating beautiful community over there and really opening stunning spaces to be and live and feel.
So, no offence to the valley.. it´s just what we observed and I wanted to share it here with that beautiful picture of andean food source plants ( quinoa) in front of those majestic mountains of the sacred valley :) #gaiama#peru#cusco#sacredvalley#ecoproject#alternativelife#naturallife#valley#mountains#travel#travelling#aroundtheworld#rawvegan#vegan#veganfood#worldtrip#healthy#fit#sacred#truth#southamerica#andean#andes

🥃💀💋 One sip ain't gonna do shit.
In the second sip I begin to admit
That the third one down is what makes me feel alright.
And number four I slam down to the floor.
By five I'm ready to fight all night.
And then six, seven, eight to make me break your face
Sometimes. 🥃💀💋 @godsmack
