& Permaculture Demo-farm
On a small Island south-west of Bohol in the Philippines we try to start a spiritual community based on the principles of the "Children of the Law of One" and unselfish love.
At the same time we do self sustaining farming and follow permaculture principles on a lot of almost 1'700 sqm.
The lot has around 7 different sections containing:
1. Entrance with Rest House
2. Garden with composting area, compost toilet and outdoor shower
3. Cogon Grass field
4. Pond basins
5. Fruit tree garden
6. (Earth-House) Ditch
7. Rocky hill and -fields
A small rest house of native style gives us shelter from moody weather. The climate is tropical, sometimes rainy but mostly warm.
A Solar-Island-System provides us with electricity and a deep well pump ensures us plenty of water with the small disadvantage of salinity.
The farm is located on mostly flat terain, approx 10m above sea level and is about 1km away from the sea cliffs.
Soon our rest house can accommodate people in 4 small rooms.
Currently there are 1-2 people, 2 dogs and 1 cat living at the Rainbow Farm.
We are still locking for new members;
People with skills and sencitivity towards the surrounding as spiritual guides and practicioners are most welcome.
Coming here is for most people, which are not used to Asia a bit of a culture shock.
We are trying ourselves to find the balance between the local culture, other species of plants and the cultural background we come from. Sometimes it's necessary to look at things with less expectations to manage daily challenges in communication with locals.
