Ecovillage of the season : the community of Sachawasi (Bolivia)

Thanks to our partner, the Non-Profit Organization ekidina (visit or here ), we got a nice review about the ecovillage of Sachawasi. 

Sachawasi is a permaculture community located in the county of Franz Tamayo, in the Qeshwa village of Santa Cruz del Valle Ameno in Bolivia. It is founded in 2008 by Bruno, a french farmer.

The two main ideas of the foundation are agriculture preservation and protection of biodiversity. They develop different projects through workshops which are open to public: permaculture, local food agriculture, setting agro-ecosystems. The project, spread on 5 hectares, has a budget of US$180.300 (1)
