Sustainable Living

Community Description:

Penyon Bay Ecological Village is a project in the making and has not yet begun operations. We will be located near the city of Alhoceima in Northern Morocco, on the Mediterranean coast of the country. The village will be initially composed of a permaculture farm, a guesthouse and spaces for art meetings and learning workshops. Our vision is to build a community focused on self-sustainability, organic gardening and permaculture. The dream is that of a simple, healthy, natural way of life.

We welcome people of all backgrounds and nationalities, particularly those that are friendly, open, conscientious, love the earth and are committed to its preservation. We welcome sponsors and supporters.

Thank You
