8th Life Panama



THE PROJECT

Come create community.

8th Life Panama is a permaculture-based Eco-village Project in the early stages of formation. We're designing our intentional community to provide a social support structure and a low impact lifestyle for our members, residents, volunteers and guests. We envision an intentional rural community where the values and ideals of community, respect, peace, and living an “on-purpose” life will be rediscovered by the diverse, multigenerational group of people who’ve joined us.

We are currently seeking founding members and experienced permaculture volunteers.

THE REASONS

We can live more lightly.

As human beings we weren’t designed to live disconnected from nature and each other. As a society we’ve gone astray and as a result we’re damaging our mother earth and soon she won’t be able to sustain human life. We seem to have also lost the ability to relate with one another as human beings.

It’s time to transition from a destructive society to a sustainable world. We need to stop the destruction, build soil, restore ecosystems, heal our addictions, change organizational structures of the global economy, & learn to live in community.

THE LAND

Be a steward and protector.

Our Eco-village land, Finca Astoria, is 21Ha of grasslands and forests bordered by a river and stream. When we bought the land, it was in its natural state apart from 1Ha that’s been farmed on occasion. The finca is located 11 km from the town of Antón Panama, where we have our operations center.

Villa Astoria is our co-working, co-living center in the town of Antón. It is an operational guest house, receiving travelers, digital nomads and volunteers and other project participants. We work and live here while designing the Eco-village.
