We are Bastian & Inge, the owners of permaculture research farm Semilla Besada.
In 2011 we took on a beautiful, off-grid, permaculture farm which had been started in 1999. It’s located in the high mountains of the Spanish Sierra Nevada, in the Alpujarras, at 1350m above sea level. After four years of working hard and learning a lot, we believe it is time to become a fully-functional, educational, permaculture center.
Our goal is to integrate the land, resources, people and the environment through mutually beneficial synergies. It is our intention to give people the opportunity to learn the real permaculture practices, sharing good food fresh springwater in an abundant environment.
To reach our goals we decided to restore and improve the existing infrastructure:
improving water catchment from the roofs
fitting new windows
building a bigger kitchen
installing a library
creating large dining and teaching rooms
building a new bathroom
installing a new off-grid solar-wind system with battery bank
making a greywater filter system
adding new foundations to the terrace
building a large gabion in front of the house to avoid further movement of the house
making a dormitory for 10 people
installing solar heating
By searching for financial ways to fund our project we discovered:
This new approach for banking the 2 billion unbanked in the world fits in the permaculture principles where we stand for.
The OneLife vision is to provide alternative payment solutions and equal access to financial education to people worldwide.
OneLife Network makes financial transactions and trade safer, easier, and available to everyone on the web. Our ecosystem of virtual tools and services holds the potential to open new economic markets for cross border trade and to stimulate economic growth.
The Semilla Besada is still shaping the future for the better! The OneLife core values reflects strength and future ambitions. By joining the OneLife Network business model that is based on a direct sales concept, in which members can profit by referring and selling educational packages about cryptocurrency and financial management we can make our dream project of the non-profit association Semilla Besada real. Now we will be able to educate people about permaculture and the future of payments.
