Incredibly Sustainable Fair– Can Pipirimosca
Description: Can Pipirimosca is an organic farm where living in a more simple and sustainable way is part of the activism for caring of the enviroment. The project is nowadays focused as the headquarters to support activities in towns (transition town, urban gardens, free market) as part of the enviromental activism. Can Pipi is a place based on permaculture principles. Deep ecology retreats take place to raise awareness. Resources are recovered, fixed and reused to reduce impact on the planet. Can Pipi lifestyle suits activists and people ready to reduce consumption to the minimum and ready to be conscious about the impact of their daily actions.This year workcamp will give support to the Incredibly Sustainable Fair that is organized at the urban garden during Firagost.
