Lake Creation @ Telethrion

For English Press here! Free and Real, in the contexts of the creation of the school of sustainability and self-sufficiency of The Telaithrion Project is making an open call for ten days with the subject: Lake Creation, Reinforcing the Forest Garden, Permaculture Applications and Many More The ten day event will start at noon of Friday 23rd of February and will be completed on Sunday March 4th . Free and Real, in the context of the Telaithrion venture, puts forward one of the great goals of this year, the completion of the works for the creation of the lake in the area of the project, and the strengthening of the forest garden with 100 extra fruit trees. The purpose of this specific ten-day period is to complete extensive manual tasks that are required before laying the specific material at the bottom of the lake. So we need few good “ready for battle” friends of the project, who want to live life in the venture through this ten days and learn from this experience. The lake is one of the four major development pieces of the Telaithrion venture. Its area is about 340 square meters and the depth reaches 5 meters. With its completion and with achieving an ideal balance between the plants, fish and other elements that will be added, a natural closed system will be created that will change the microclimate and feed the forest garden. The program will include about 4 hours of practical work every day at Teletrion (weather permitting) and the rest of the day we will learn and live together, as much as we can about all the issues that we have been working on over the years here at Free and Real. Some of these are, natural farming, permaculture, ecological building, alternative energy sources and DIY constructions, home self-sufficiency, mushroom cultivation, organization of workshops and festivals, herb collection and more. We will be filling our days with discussions and presentations but also co-decided actions. Our evenings will be filled with projections and collective games. Also (weather permitting) Basma will coordinate yoga classes in the dome. Of course there will be a detailed presentation of the Telaithrion project and after an open discussion there will be a bath and spa in the hot springs of Edipsos at the 9 queens spa hotel.  The suggested contribution price for this ten day venture is € 90 and includes: Accommodation.
