...not insane (yet) but ORGANIC!! We have passed the three year test period and are growing fruit and vegetables without the use of chemical fertilisers or pesticides (pollutants).

Now the Permaculture cycle is complete and we are contributing to the regeneration of the land around us and it is sustaining us.

The permaculture cycle
Planting seedlings at the farm

At La Finca del Castillo Arabe we generate power using the sun and bio diesel (for back up), and hot water using biomass (olive pips from the local olive cooperative)

All waste water from the house passes through several different filters and is purified without the use of chemicals and is used to irrigate the formal gardens


What is permaculture?

La Finca del Castillo de los Moros
Here at our farm we manage the relationship between our building project - la casa - and the land at la finca using the principles of Permaculture.

Permaculture is about designing ecological human habitats and food production systems. It is about creating the harmonious integration of human dwellings, microclimate, annual and perennial plants, animals, soils, and water into stable, productive communities. The focus is not on these elements themselves, but rather on the relationships created among them by the way we place them in the landscape.

The principles include

  • sustainable land use strategies without waste and pollution
  • established systems for healthy food production and maybe some surplus
  • restoration of degraded landscapes, resulting in conservation of endemic species - especially rare and endangered species.
  • integration and harmony of all living things on the property - all things live in an atmosphere of cooperation or interact in natural cycles
  • no use of pollutant chemicals
  • minimal consumption of energy

This means that:

  • products and services used by our business need to be as local as possible
  • waste products resulting from the habitation and production processes of the business on the land must be recycled wherever possible
