Transition Tavira is part of an international movement to encourage sustainable use of local land, as well as a way of creating community gardens. Some groups use Permaculture methods and or organic practices. The group in Tavira have been working on some land near Santa Rita, for a few months. The land was provided by Tavira Camara, for their use, for 5 years. The group in Tavira is made up of all nationalities. They have enthusiastically organised a festival called the “Festival of the Tree” and it will take place from March 22 to 24 in Tavira and Mata de Santa Rita. Aviram Rozin (Sadhana Forest) Auroville, India is coming to share water preservation techniques and much more.
