At La Loma Viva (The Living Hill) our vision is to bring together earth care and people care. We provide a platform for the research, practice and education of Permaculture and personal development - evolving the tools that encourage health and resilience in people and places. We are located on 10 hectares of terraced farm land, nestled beneath the Sierra Nevada mountains, overlooking the Mediterranean sea, on the coast of Granada in southern Spain.
La Loma is a farm project using Permaculture - a revolutionary approach to agriculture and to designing human habitats that work in harmony with nature. We offer courses on Permaculture and related subjects, as well as providing opportunities to engage with nature and the land in an experiential way.
La Loma is also a teaching space and retreat centre, running workshops, classes and fully catered residential retreats - specializing in established disciplines which encourage mindfulness and well-being.
We offer the space for other teachers and practitioners to hold events that are aligned with our vision.
At La Loma Viva we wish to create an environment where we can grow people and plants, learn about all the inter-connected systems of life and discover our inherent and participatory relationship with nature and the living earth.
Walking the Middle Way path, we approach our activities with an open and curious outlook - breaking away from rigid ideas and belief systems. Using the guidelines of nature, we are exploring possibilities and experimenting with new ways of doing things.
