Eco community Free and Real
I had the opportunity to visit quite a few times the eco co-housing community Free and Real and capture the daily life of its members! It’s a priceless experience being a volunteer photographer for such an amazing eco-community! The idea behind Free & Real, which stands for Freedom of Resources for Everyone Everywhere & Respect, Equality, Awareness, and Learning began to take shape back in winter 2008. The vision is to create a self-sufficient eco-community in Evia, which will serve as a school for sustainability and a model that can be replicated throughout the world. Since 2010 Free and Real have been based at N. Euboea, turning the continuous research of the basic fields of self-sufficiency (health, farming, nutrition, building & energy) into action. Free and Real are participating in the large family of the Greek Eco-network of producers, handcrafters, and collectives, act as a medium for the free flow of information on various subjects, promote fair trade products and are part of the global eco-village Network (GEN), cooperate selflessly with local groups and citizens encouraging free economy, while participations and visits have turned into joint ventures and travel outside the Greek border.
