Children learning freely according to their own interests. Parents and volunteers are there to help with this process and with their needs, sharing their passions too. Children are great mirrors who show our path to freedom , what we still need to clear/unlearn
We are creating a food forest garden with vegetable beds and fruit trees. The tecniques are a mix of Permaculture with Agro-Forestry. It has been a lot of work and dedication but finally it’s very productive for a young food forest.
Moabi is a Kundalini Yoga teacher and shares classes and mediations with the parents and volunteers. Together we enjoy this transformative experience to release stress, quiet the mind, liberate tensions in the body and come to our own power and joy.
The main mission of this project is to provide a space for self-directed, alive and holistic learning at the countryside. A place to enjoy learning, exploring, connecting with ourselves and others, listening to our own rhythms and needs and engaging in a more sustainable lifestyle.
Self-directed learning means we choose and take responsibility for what we want to learn. Learning is an ongoing process that can happen in our habitual learning space, where we have tools available, or any other place. We go to other people to ask for help or to guide us in our personal learning process.
“We can best help children learn, not by deciding what we think they should learn and thinking of ingenious ways to teach it to them, but by making the world, as far as we can, accessible to them, paying serious attention to what they do, answering their questions — if they have any — and helping them explore the things they are most interested in.”

“What is most important and valuable about the home as a base for children’s growth into the world is not that it is a better school than the schools, but that it isn’t a school at all.”
― John Holt
Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school.
― Albert Einstein
“We have to go from what is essentially an industrial model of education, a manufacturing model, which is based on linearity and conformity and batching people. We have to move to a model that is based more on principles of agriculture. We have to recognize that human flourishing is not a mechanical process; it’s an organic process. And you cannot predict the outcome of human development. All you can do, like a farmer, is create the conditions under which they will begin to flourish.”
― Ken Robinson
Children are educated by what the grown-up is and not by his talk. ― Carl Jung
From Families & Volunteers
“Our experience at Tribodar is truly transformative! In an environment of great love, in the midst of nature we find our nature more intensely! We learn something everyday, about animals, how food is prepared for the soil, how an ecovillage works, about permaculture, how we can adapt to a life so simple and so enriching! Children discover what they like, decide what to learn and explore freely and happily their talents, as well as responsibility for space and community living, participating in some important tasks of collective space. My son is so grateful, I perceive in his eyes and even in the special affection as that of gratitude for the experience and for feeling that he is more mature, stronger and more conscious !!! “

“At summer 2018 our family (me, my husband and our two kids age 7 and 2) stayed couple of weeks in Tribodar. It was amazing time, amazing people and many beautiful experiences. Tribodar welcomed us so very warmly; truly it has this magical atmosphere and Moabi and Gennaro are the magic makers there! During these weeks I felt I was learning so many new things, getting totally inspired, having lots of fun, working hard, laughing with the kids and also learning new stuff about myself. I could not be more grateful! Hope to meet Tribodar and everyone there very soon again!”

I stayed here for 2 months and have to say that it was such a wonderful experience . the work was varied and included cob building , gardening , olive picking amongst many other things . i learnt a great deal about myself and community living .
I had the opportunity to partake in various workshops that included drumming, yoga , meditation, bicycle repair and of course the 7 day edible olives .
I met such a wide range of people who all had things to teach and share . some of the volunteers that i met here are now very good friends and i am staying in touch with them after my time here .
I would like to thank Gennaro, Moabi and of course Minky for all the experiences i had during my stay with them . I am sure i will see you all again soon .
