EcoAldea 8va Vida Panamá



THE PROJECT

Come create community.

8th Life Panama is a permaculture-based Eco-village Project in 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 forming our core team.

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 Ubuntu, is 21Ha of rolling hills, grasslands and forests bordered by a river and stream. It is located 11 km from the town of Antón Panama, which is 2.5hrs from Panama City.

The finca, which was in its natural state when we acquired it, now has a .5Ha food forest, bunkhouse, kitchen, common room, nursery, and toolshed. There's electricity, well water, raised bed gardens, and a camping area as well as lots of areas under reforestation.

  • “Vivimos en una sociedad adolescente, El País de Nunca Jamás, donde nunca crecer parece más la norma que la excepción. Niños pequeños que llevan trajes caros y cuerpos adultos no se les debe permitir dirigir grandes corporaciones, … gobiernos, ejércitos, religiones, … y también son bastante malos como maridos y padres. La humanidad se ha convertido en Pan-idad.”

  • “Hay una, y sólo una, solución, y casi no tenemos tiempo para hacerlo. Debemos convertir todos nuestros recursos en reparar el mundo natural y capacitar a todos nuestros jóvenes para que ayuden. Ellos quieren hacerlo. Tenemos que darles esta última oportunidad de crear bosques, suelos, aguas limpias, energías limpias, comunidades seguras, regiones estables, y saber cómo hacerlo “
