Transforming an industrial pig farm into an abundant fertile permaculture garden community and education center where post-consumerist culture meets art and beauty is not an easy task! But this is our ambition and for that we need your help… or maybe you need ours? If this is where you aim then we are going in the same direction. Maybe we could go for a ride together?
Starseed continually evolves and works to reflect growing trends in environmental consciousness, botanical stewardship, creative DIY and eco-friendly alternatives to build a responsible community. We gather seeds and tools, seek objects of beauty, foods & medicines that are super and sublime for all to share!
If your project is consistent with: (but not only)
- Reusing existing buildings and restoring habitat to accommodate creative people,
- Utilising cutting edge design and recycled materials to create energy-efficient, carbon storing or organic architectural buildings,
- Growing rich cultural facilities into beautifully landscaped gardens for food, fiber, medicinal or fuel use,
- Engineering environmentally-friendly cosmetics and green products,
- Conceptualising, developing and testing alternative exchange systems on a small scale,
- Producing multimedia material serving food autonomy, localisation of economy and cultural development
In brief, if you are looking for an inspiring place to host a sustainable business that aims to organise it’s economical activity around the principles of healthy lifestyle, permaculture, environmental preservation, responsible technologies and renewable energies in a vibrant and inspiring community: Starseed is a place to consider.
