Sólheimar eco village

Sólheimar eco village

A sustainable community in S-Iceland

Sólheimar is a village in southern Iceland, located about 80 km from Reykjavík.

Sesselja H. Sigmundsdóttir (1902-1974) founded Sólheimar on the 5th of July 1930. It is the first community of its kind in the world, where so called able and disabled people live and work together. Sólheimar is also the first community in Scandinavia where organic cultivation is practised. Today, Sólheimar is a village with 100 inhabitants, 40 of whom are disable. The grounds are about 250 hectares.

Community Garden in Rural Wayanad!

A project to Create Employment Opportunities and Enhance Food and Nutritional Security for Tribal People in Wayanad, Kerala!

Introduction: The hilly district of Wayanad, Kerala is known for its rich biodiversity and cultural diversity. It is an agrarian district with nearly 90% of people depending on agriculture for sustenance. Dependency on agriculture and farm work is of particular concern for Wayanad’s tribal population which continues to represent the highest demographic in Kerala at an estimated 18%.

Living Roots EcoVillage

Living Roots EcoVillage

Living Roots EcoVillage is located on a beautiful 75 acre farm near Patoka Lake/French Lick/Paoli, IN. This historic farm has 3 barns, a bunkhouse, a community center, more than 10 springs (including a spring house), good fencing, good soil, a pond, forest, and beautiful rolling pastures. In just about 2 years on the new land, we have built three greenhouses, 5 cabins (including an earthen clay-slip, earth bag dome), an 1800 ft. deer fence, farm stand, outdoor kitchen, produce shed, U-Pick strawberry patch, building workshop, walk-in fridge, and earthen grow room.

Regenerative Organic Agriculture

Regenerative Organic Agriculture

The answer is under our feet
Regenerative organic agriculture remove the carbon from the atmosphere and oceans by sequestering it into the soil. It creates humus, made up of the stable, long-lasting remnants of decaying organic material, which expands the soil’s water-holding capacity and improves the fertility of the soil and our ability to grow nutrient-rich crops.
Vermicomposting

Vermicomposting

Worm composting
Worm composting (also called Vermicomposting) is a method for recycling food waste into a rich, dark, earth-smelling soil conditioner. The great advantage of worm composting is that this can be done indoors and outdoors, thus allowing year round composting. It also provides apartment dwellers with a means of composting. In a nutshell, worm compost is made in a container filled with moistened bedding and redworms. Add your food waste for a period of time, and the worms and micro-organisms will eventually convert the entire contents into rich compost. In ideal conditions worms can eat at least their own weight of organic matter in a day and their casts are supremely beneficial to plant growth.
Intercropping

Intercropping

Mixing it up with your crops
Intercropping offers farmers the opportunity to engage nature's principle of diversity on their farms and have the following advantages: Benefits of intercropping are crop yield, productivity of various plant constituents, economic return, yield stability, social benefits, pest control, and nutrient use efficiency. Furthermore, because of some favorable exudates from the component legumes, greater land-use efficiency, greater yield stability and increased competitive ability towards weed, intercropping is advantageous over mono-cropping.
Hugelkultur

Hugelkultur

Hügelkultur is making raised garden beds made of and covered with organic material for cropping. It has several advantages: The first few years, the composting process will slightly warm your soil giving you a slightly longer growing season. The organic material will also shrinks inside the garden beds, making more tiny air so there is no need for tilling. As the years pass, the organic material keeps nutrient excess from passing into the ground water and refeeds that to the garden plants later: That makes the soil of the raised garden bed incredibly rich and loaded with soil life. Besides, it holds a lot of water so hugelkultur can be part of a system for growing garden crops in dry areas with few – or no – irrigation. Passing from 2D to 3D increases the cropping surface as well and enables different micro-climats in the garden bed so it is possible to have more diversity. Last but not least, it allows to avoid bending down…
No Till Gardening

No Till Gardening

Avoiding soil degradation
The benefits of no-till gardening are therefore numerous: it promotes natural aeration and drainage, it saves water, reduces or eliminates the need to weed, it saves time and energy, it builds earthworm population and helps to reduce the soil erosion and to retain carbon. No-till gardening requires some experimenting to find the right techniques for each growing region but oneself can find a good documentation about how to apply principles of no-till gardening (Preparing the bed before adopting the no-till method, using mulch liberally, in layers; when planting seedlings, pull the mulch back and dig into the surface just enough to set the plant; cuting back on watering; covering cropswith hay in the winter; avoiding compacting the soil etc.)
Gift-economy

Gift-economy

Social Permaculture
A gift economy, gift culture, or gift exchange is a mode of exchange where valuables are not traded or sold, but rather given without an explicit agreement for immediate or future rewards. This contrasts with a barter economy or a market economy, where goods and services are primarily exchanged for value received. Social norms and custom govern gift exchange. Gifts are not given in an explicit exchange of goods or services for money or some other commodity. Property is not a thing, but a relationship amongst people about things.[13] According to Hann, property is a social relationship that governs the conduct of people with respect to the use and disposition of things. Anthropologists analyze these relationships in terms of a variety of actors' (individual or corporate) "bundle of rights" over objects. Gift-giving in many societies is complicated because "private property" owned by an individual may be quite limited in scope (see 'The Commons' below).[12] Productive resources, such as land, may be held by members of a corporate group (such as a lineage), but only some members of that group may have "use rights". When many people hold rights over the same objects gifting has very different implications than the gifting of private property; only some of the rights in that object may be transferred, leaving that object still tied to its corporate owners. Anthropologist Annette Weiner refers to these types of objects as "inalienable possessions" and to the process as "keeping while giving."[6] Valuing and creating relationships, ressources and responsability a gift-economy is much more sustainable to grow independent communities. There is no debt, just surplus. The coordination of ressources, people and knowledge can be supported by appropriate technology to be effective and accessible. http://ecobasa.org, the gift-economy network for sustainable communities are working for this vision. By connecting people and sustainable communities in a global gift-economy network they facilitate the communication and exchange of experiences, knowledges, services and resources and create sustainable win-win relationships. By participating in this network, our movement can grow into a true alternative to our current global exploiting capitalistic system!
Low cost public composting toilets

Low cost public composting toilets

Completely contained composting toilet and leachate processing system
The four Center for Creative Ecology at Kibbutz Lotan composting toilets has provided a no-water sanitary solution for human excreta for upwards of tens of thousands of visitors since 2008. Excreta, poo, urine and toilet paper, drop into off-the-shelf and augmented municipal 120 liter waste bins. Users add a cup of dry organic material (chopped straw, leaves). The toilet seat is a 40 cm diameter plastic culvert pipe which extends below the floor. The bottom of the pipe connects to a flexible plastic shaft which connects to a galvanized steel cover sealing the top of the waste bin. From the cover a flexible ventilation pipe connects to an solar powered inline exhaust fan. The bottom of the bin has a raised, perforated floor. A plastic tap allows leachate extraction. Composting deactivates pathogens and continues for months in a closed bin until volume decreases 60%. Compost is used on trees. Leachate is processed in adjacent constructed wetland and irrigates fruit trees.
Arid lands brackish water farming

Arid lands brackish water farming

Utilizing non potable brackish water for organic farming in desert and drylands climates with no soil
The Southern Arava desert, between the Dead Sea and the Red Sea gulf port cities of Aqaba, Jordan and Eilat, Israel, has on average 15 mm of rain per year. Well water has salt (Sodium) concentration of 600 to 2000 mg/L (WHO/EU drinking water upper limit of Na+ 200 mg/L). Land is either hard packed, rocky alluvium or pure sand. Industrial monoculture growing of a limited variety of vegetables in the region uses drip irrigation and high inputs of liquid industrial fertilizers. The Center for Creative Ecology has been successful with growing a wide variety of inter-cropped vegetables, herbs and fruit trees by creating nutrient rich soil from composting municipal and animal waste. Transplanted seedlings or seeds are planted along water limiting drip irrigation pipes atop rows of composted organic matter which is covered with thick layers of mulch from shredded tree branches. Yields increase yearly as the soil comes to life. New varieties of vegetables are introduced yearly.
