End of season Permablitz Party

5 10 2016



(en castellano abajo)

We’ve had an incredible year at Boodaville and achieved so much – geodesic dome!, festival, kitchen roof, successful funding application, became an association, regenerative farming, hundreds of participants and volunteers. This is absolutely the longest year of my life and we are going to end the 2016 season with a BANG. So join us on the 29th October for an amazing get together to plant trees, spread seeds and dance under the stars.

“Build Your Future” – Youth Exchange

5 09 2016

We built a dome!! An amazing 9 day Erasmus+ program, working with a fantastic team and a wonderful group of young, and not so young participants. Thank you so much to Jordi Cavaller Badia, Chuchi, Carlos, Bernat, OJ, Alberto and Kate for making this happen and to all the participants for their energy, positivity, ability to adapt to basic living and very hot conditions (41º on 2 days, but don’t get me started talking about climate change) and their openness and great collaboration.

Guest writer – Claudia, one of our participants from Portugal has written about her experience:

Hey this is Cláudia (pt) from Boodaville Summer 2016. We are in our last day before departure, trying to make everything beautiful for our final presentation with some guests here in our place.

Day 2 and 3 of the dome course..

29 08 2016

Never mind the practice dome we built as a team-building exercise on day 1 .. we’re already well underway with the big dome which is the focus of this course!



Dome course – day 1

27 08 2016

We’re all here! After a late rush to find participants due to a cancellation we have a full course and have spent the day getting to know each other.. with people from 10 different countries!

The participants have recovered from the initial shock of living in nature and are already looking comfortable with alternative living – some girls are still wearing make-up I applaud them if they keep that up for the full 9 days with such small mirrors😉

As i write they are team-building and actually building a metal dome structure to be our chill-out space and yoga zone – up in the forest. I’ll post some photos of their successful work tomorrow….
