Permaculture design on the New Guinea farm
The New Guinea farm is designed on the basis of permaculture principles and is a field of application and experimentation for the study, development and adaptation of different techniques in a Mediterranean climate. The design includes different polyculture systems, water collection and management systems, living hedges, composting and wastewater management systems and infrastructure to support educational activities. The farm produces food, herbs and timber to meet the basic needs of the people involved in its cultivation and also supplies the New Guinea kitchen during the seminars. It is an open classroom for the practical workshops organized in the context of the relevant seminars, while it also hosts open information events and guided tours.
