Organic Without Borders have recived funds to make a pre-study for a Demonstration Center in Lalibela, that will be our demonstration area for sustainable solutions. The vision is to create a beautiful and attractive learning place, both for locals and for tourists.

We want to demonstrate and have courses in:

  • Permaculture principles and methods in organic gardening and food production with scarcely of water
  • Environmental friendly houses for living with eco-san toilet system and low tech solar energy systems for electricity and hot showers
  • A place for meeting between all nationalities and religions
  • Beekeeping and honey production
  • Reforestation program with planting trees, plants and flowers that end soil erosion and also contribute to a increased biodiversity in the area

We have got fundings from Kulturbryggan and the project will start in the winter 2016/2017. The pre-study will hopefully be performed in a collaboration with architects without borders during winter 2016/2017.

Unfortunately, the land was taken by another actor. We have to close the project.

  • Location: Lalibela, Ethiopia
