A permanent experimental laboratory combining old and new techniques involving permaculture, natural agriculture, education, art and self-building.
We have often been told that we are dreamers. We have been told this because our eyes shine when we say we want to promote a way of living, working and producing that is different, respectful and in harmony with nature. That same nature that welcomes and sustains us. However, many dreamers all together can actually create something real: this is how the Saja social promotion association was born, in beautiful Sicily Inspired by the beauty of nature, Saja is a place of production and contemplation where work and culture are the driving forces of community growth. A permanent experimental laboratory combining old and new techniques involving permaculture, natural agriculture, education, art and self-building.
Now the dream is to expand this style of living and producing, in harmony with nature, so that even more people can learn about it and experience it. Another project – Finca Palta – was created with the hope of bringing many nature lovers to a beautiful terraced land, not far from the sea, where trees, people and nature coexist and look after each other.
Many people have contributed to making this dream come true by growing their tree in Saja!
On April 18, 2021, Roy Paci and Angelo Sicurella’s PHONOSYNTHESIS event took place; the first worldwide concert whose duration depended on the number of adopted trees. The concert, which live streamed on Facebook, was hosted in the magnificent food forest of Saja (in Paternò), at the foot of Mount Etna.
The adopted trees, besides defining the duration of the concert, served to complete the food forest, ultimately leaving the land in a better state than how it was found. And that is precisely the concept of Climate Positive and of TreeTicket’s service: capturing more CO2 than was emitted during the event.
