Life at Ecotara

Ecotara grew with the intention of learning & sharing how to nourish mind and body, living in a simple way and love for Nature. Food, animals and people are a celebration of our aliveness.

 

 

Our organic garden

Our organic garden

We grow our own food. From seeds to plants to tasty vegetables. We try to have a good variety of herbs, vegetables, and roots. We also have fruit trees, most are orange, lemon and olive trees. Planting seeds, nurturing and watching them grow gives us a feeling of accomplishment that’s hard to explain. It’s fun work that helps us nourish and maintain our health. It’s also a great way to relax and get the stress out of your mind. We love to learn from others and exchange knowledge to keep our vegetable garden a life. Products are not for selling, if we have an excess of food we give it to guests, friends, family and of course we feed our animals.
Our little farm

Our little farm

We have 9 beautiful chickens, 3 roosters, 6 sheeps and a naughty black canary pig, whom roam freely in a large fence- in area. One of the joys of owning animals is watching "Animal TV" as they interact with each other, you, and their environment.

 

When chickens free-range, they are able to do what nature intended them to do.  They can scratch and dig in the dirt to find bugs and leaves and to forage for other things to eat – all that scratching, pecking and pooping in the soil does a great job of keeping the dirt loosened, fertilised and aerated. They can run and exercise their wings by flying short distances.  They can snooze in the sun or find a nice place to take a dust bath which is essential in controlling parasites and conditioning their skin.
This is why we have high quality of eggs and are healthier for us

 

Local community

We are sure that the incorporation of the children of the nearby community in Ecotara will add more value to our project. We are already have a good relation with Fataga people but we believe that we have to make the local people participants of our project if we want to achieve real success.
