La Bolina envisions a world of thriving ecological, regenerative and intercultural communities

 

….And, to activate this vision, we’ve decided to start where we live - El Valle de Lecrín, Granada, Spain. 

 

We catalyse and implement local regenerative initiatives, in collaboration with other individuals and projects in El Valle, a municipality of three rural depopulating villages, between Granada and the coast. 

 

The La Bolina team moved here in December 2017 and have been joined by new project members, migrants and refugees, producers, students and volunteers who have supported the project to take root.

 

La Bolina is becoming integrated locally and regionally and team members are becoming an active part of village life. This means that we are able to listen to what is needed - whilst also bringing global perspectives on complexity, migration and the need for regenerative agriculture and localised food systems.


 

La Bolina’s projects and actions adapt (like a living ecosystem) responding to changes in the local context - such as connections with people, new collaborators, local politics, the trends in migration and the realities of the Spanish asylum system, availability of land and learning new farming techniques.



 

Our current projects:

 

  • Regenerative agriculture based on agroecological principles 

  • Farmer X

  • La Bolina Veg boxes 

  • Catalysing a network of local ecological producers

  • La Bolina training programmes

  • Local community events 

  • Social art and theatre with migrants and refugees

  • Building an eco garden in El Valle school

  • Employment, internships and training for migrants and refugees

  • Nature connection activities



 

In all of our projects we commit to:

 

  •  live our values.

  • take courageous, responsible and positive action.

  • think, do and act with creativity.

  •  meet all humans as humans and embody the values of equity, love and respect.

  • embed ecological regeneration in all that we do, acknowledging the non-separateness of ourselves and nature.

 


 

Even though La Bolina is a young project it has gained international recognition for its dedication to regeneration, local rural development and work with migrants and refugees. [read more]
