In August, the "Green for Life" training course was held in Lefkada (Greece). The project aimed to promote good practices in relation to sustainability and the responsible use of resources. This is the testimony in which one of his participants, Andrea, tells us how the experience has been.
Going back to a place where you have lived adventures, experiences and learnings for a year is always a challenge, but at the same time it is a great joy to return to a place you feel like home. I thought so when I received the email that said I was selected to participate in this "Training Course in Permaculture and Bioconstruction" in Lefkada, Greece.
It has been ten very intense days, in which more than thirty young people from different countries of Europe and Africa (I can not forget those Tunisians who prepared a delicious meal) have lived and worked closely to build a wooden tree house on a centenary olive tree (to which we ask permission) and some brick banks of adobe and cob (for the less experienced it is a mixture of sand, clay, water and straw). These banks are in turn "wicking beds", a permaculture technique that allows plants to absorb the water they need by capillarity, saving large amounts of water.
I just want to thank all those people who put so much desire, effort and love in what they do. Thanks to them and they are worth it.
