Holistic Inspiration Center
Earth Awareness is located in a living community in a little village called Teuge, near Apeldoorn in Holland. The place has gotten an eco-forest-village characteristic, due to long abandonment, when nature took over. There are lots of trees and the bird chatter is always present. You see amazing natural art, beautiful gardens and food forrest, off grid systems, big communal spaces and shamanistic decorations. This place will take you away to another world, where all feels like dreams come true.
called EcoTribe. In 2001, a group of young adventure seekers, came to live on the abandoned terrain, which is 3.2 ha and counts 10 farms. There are communal spaces for daily life and events, rocket stove mass heaters, heliofyte water filter, big veggie garden and greenhouse, solar energy and more. Here, life is off grid. Without the connection to the mainstream systems, the connection with nature and its elements became central, which makes it one of the rare free places in Holland with lots of practical experience in low budget, sustainable living. Alternative solutions have been created to live a more natural and sustainable life. An international meeting spot that magnets the “free minded”.
