Exploring a permaculture farm in sunny Alicante: A veggie-filled adventure!

Remember that time last year when I embarked on an unforgettable journey to Alicante, Spain, with a group of new friends? Well, I’m finallly sharing my full experience about this beautiful, relaxing and educational day at a permaculture farm that left me buzzing with excitement and green inspiration!

Let’s set the scene, shall we? Alicante, this beautiful region, known for its sun-soaked beaches, lively fiestas, and *mouthwatering* paellas. But wait, there’s more! Nestled amidst this Spanish paradise is a permaculture farm. 

First, let me explain what permaculture. Permaculture is an approach to farming and living that mimics natural ecosystems to create sustainable, self-sufficient environments. It focuses on designing systems that work harmoniously with nature, reducing waste, and promoting biodiversity to ensure long-term ecological and food security. This practice aims to cultivate a balanced and resilient relationship between humans and the environment.

So, picture this: we hopped on a bus with a group of people who joined this tour. The excitement was real as we rolled through the scenic landscapes of the Valencia region to Alicante. After what felt like forever (in reality, not that long), we arrived at the permaculture farm. 

The farmers showed us around their green paradise, giving us all the info on how they make the magic happen. They told us everything about their methods for permaculture, explaining how they create a symphony of growth without messing with the earth’s vibes. It was super interesting, especially since I did not know that much about Permaculture before.

Oh, did I mention we got to play farmer and pick our own veggies? I was so happy with my colossal cauliflower. It was *huge*, and look at my happy face just holding it.

After that the farmer/chef made us a fresh paella that made our taste buds do a happy dance. Picture this: soaking up the sun, digging into a plate of mouthwatering goodness, sipping on bio wine (fancy, huh?), and trading stories with our fellow eco-explorers. It was basically a foodie’s dream come true, complete with great conversations and endless laughs.

After a few hours we sayd goodbye to the permaculture wonderland, my heart and mind forever changed by this adventure. I left with a newfound appreciation for sustainable living, a belly full of paella, and memories to last a lifetime.

So there you have it, our tribe – my journey to a permaculture farm in Alicante, Spain. It was a day of discovery, deliciousness, and bonding with nature in a way that felt straight-up magical. If you’re ever in Alicante, do yourself a favor and seek out one of these eco-oases – trust me, your inner hippie will thank you! Until next time, keep it green!
