Hola familia!

We've got some news to share! After a more internal period of our lives, living in Florianópolis, becoming parents, etc, we've organized the next course for our lives: we are going to live in Bahia, Brazil !!

With the growth of our nuclear family, we are feeling the need to settle down and start a fixed project in a local territory, something we always envisioned doing. After weighing our options, we decided to move to Serra Grande, Bahia, a fertile region with a history of activists and ecologists acting in the area. (more about this later!)

Minhoca getting ready for the move...

While our new projects materialize there, we are entering a new phase of Común Tierra: we will be gathering our experience during all these years of documenting communities, continuing to edit some more materials, and offering some workshops locally.



A big part of our work is going to shift towards the production of the Común Tierra Book! The book will share lessons learned and stories from our 6 years on the road in Latin America, our trip in Europe, and maybe even a little from Africa and the USA. We're going to tell our story, starting in 2008 when we met living in the Esalen Institute, in California.

Esalen, 2008

Esalen, 2009.

We'll be sharing some of the adventures of Común Tierra, the experience of developing this nomadic project, and traveling constantly while working with education, permaculture, doing workshops ... living in a motor home and adapting it to be more sustainable ... our educational materials, eco- journalism, working to build networks. But we'll also be taking a broad look at the Ecovillage movement in general, and offering our insights for the movement moving forward.

Stay tuned for updates about the book . :)



Some news at the local level: a few days ago, Común Tierra offered a practical workshop for the leadership team of the Florianopolis Time Bank, as part of a mentorship partnership. It was a fruitful workshop! You can learn more about the Time Bank here.

Also in the last month, we documented the spiritual community and ecovillage Ecovila Sao Jose in Florianopolis. It's a very interesting project, founded almost 30 years ago, with around 100 residents in a beautiful area on the north side of the island. We'll be producing a video-interview with one of the community's founders soon!

Now we're preparing for the move, packing boxes into Minhoca, getting ready to hit the road after almost a year parked here on the island. In early Febuary we'll travel the 3000 km to Bahia! Happy travels ;)

Hugs from the whole family -

Leticia, Anahí, Ryan
