We show permaculture with all the life-centered cycles
in the essential areas of our life.

- energy self-sufficiency: e-car, bio-gas, solar cooking, bio-climatic building, the AUTarcaMatricultura "Earthship", water recycling - grey water treatment.
- Nutrient self-sufficiency: humus build-up with TerraPreta, wormfarming, lasagna-, crater- and hill beds, water retention landscape.
- Dignified integration of domestic and wild animals, including small cell Varroa resistant beekeeping.
- Oxygen self-sufficiency and "production": re-greening , revitalizing with species-rich wild forest gardens, with ponds,  swales, craters ( =chiropractic for Mother Earth...), agroecology and syntropic farming
- Transition towards a resilient economy and peaceful and egalitarian society.
- Integral Environmental Healing: original weather work according to Wilhelm Reich, biol.dyn. preparations according to Maria Thun, the binding of heavy metals and radioactive pollution with biochar (pyrolysis).
- Matriarchal way of Education and Healthcare
and many tips for emigrating to the Canary Islands...

"AUTarcaMatricultura has provided the most enriching experience I can ever have imagined receiving on countless levels in my being! The whole place is a blessing for humanity and our planet, and I am leaving here with my heart full of inspiration.  Now I know what is possible, and how easy it actually is, I am excited to use this, share this and be part of the example we need to be to fulfil our duties at this time on earth."  Maria, England

 "AUTarcaMatricultura explores solutions to the global crises we face today – solutions any one of us can be part of – in order to live in a sustainable and regenerative way. From forest gardens to composting toilets, renewable energy self-sufficiency to ecosystem restoration. This project offers ways we can rethink our approach to how we live." Jeff, Australia

AUTarcaMatricultura - Permaculture Documentary
Permaculture activists take responsibility for their thoughts, actions and feelings by "understanding and copying nature" as well as "studying and imitating peaceful and egalitarian societies".
AUTarcaMatricultura is portrayed in the 'BUT BEAUTIFUL' documentary.

Matricultura© is an area of research for step-out-step-in-pioneers (Living the Change)

The step-out-pioneer recognizes the exponentially growing destruction of Mother Earth and the oppression of her creation as a consequence of the patriarchal-characterized world view and therefore she steps out deliberately. The step-out-pioneer says no to the chaos of war, economic and social injustice, atomic, genetically engineered and electromagnetic contamination, abuse and exploitation, logos-driven perception and ego-centred lifestyle.

The step-in-pioneer puts life in the centre of her work and her activities. She encourages vividness with heart and creativity, the joy and the health for all beings; she feels that she is part of the whole, part of Mother Earth. The step-in-pioneer walks the path towards life-centred livelihood focused on the origin, he creates powerful visions of a healthy Mother Earth and he assumes full responsibility for his actions. To become more uncompromising and more life loving there are changes to plan and to realize in all areas of life.

We all are in dependence with the existing systems that are based on a patriarchal world view. The successful step out is not to be forced overnight. The deeper we get involved with life and the more skilful we get of life-giving activity, the more sustainable we step out of consumerism, greed and exploitation. The step-out-pioneer knows that six thousand years of patriarchalisation of the human race leave their mark to the innermost mental, emotional and spiritual existence and to the base of cellular level, too. Vividness became divided, oppressed and buried. The step-in-pioneer liberates herself gradually from the patriarchal world view. She uses this new sense of liberty and spare time to build her Life-Biotope. The step-in-pioneer liberates gently the buried and frozen vividness in his nature. This gained freedom gives him ground, orientation, spontaneity, grace and the ability to empathic participation. In order to win back life, the step-in-pioneer works his outer as well as his inner world. The inner and the outer working levels fertilize each other mutually.

AUTarcaMatricultura is a Temple of the Goddess TiniTara.

Poetry for Mother Earth
“The prime Directive of Permaculture: The only ethical decision is to take responsibility for your own existence and that of our children’s. Make it now.” Bill Mollison.

„Though the problems of the world are increasingly complex, the solutions remain embarrassingly simple”
Bill Mollison

“The prime Directive of Permaculture: The only ethical decision is to take responsibility for your own existence and that of our children’s. Make it now.” Bill Mollison.

“The greatest change we need to make is from consumption to production, even if on a small scale, in our gardens. If only 10% of us do this, there is enough for everyone. Hence the futility of revolutionaries who have no gardens, who depend on the very system they attack, and who produce words and bullets, not food and shelter “(Bill Mollison).

“Without trees, we cannot inhabit the earth“ (Bill Mollison).

“Animals are the messengers of the tree, and trees the garden of animals. Life depends upon life. All forces, all elements, all life forms are the biomass of the tree” (Bill Mollison).

“Within every problem lies the solution.” “The only limiting factor is information” (Bill Mollison).

“Trees are cool, they grow!” (Wangari Maathai).

“Nature is the best thing we have got, point to something other…we haven’t anything else, it hasn’t only survived, it has thrived“ (Geoff Lawton).

Barbara Graf, Ostara 2011, Translation from the German original: Lucienne Mueller, Chile

To Reconnect

I am shivering because of cold and fear; I seethe with anger, foam over in incomprehension, the heart swashes, the tears flow ceaselessly with the rain at the same time: The skies cry, the earth is livid with shock, in the depths of the caves, unending reverberation of the unspeakable.

The poison made by fissioned people, crawls without warning, fissions, destroys, slowly, steadily, suspends the wheel of time. The poison made by fissioned people enwraps the delusion of wealth, generates deformed figures, contaminates water, earth, fire, air and life.

Long since the beings of the air knew about it, the birds, bees and spiders, long since the beings of the earth knew about it, the worms, the snakes and rabbits, long since words failed the beings of the oceans, the dolphins, the turtles and octopuses.

Earth mother globe, big wonder of whom I am a child, I beg You: Forgive all my actions which I did and still do against you because of ignorance, arrogance or vanity; forgive me where I don't rebel because of laziness; forgive me where I participate in fissioning life because of cowardice.

Grand mother of all life and all souls, with your help I try to cement, sow together, create ground, for your beings, all my sisters and brothers, the birds, bees and spiders, the worms, snakes and rabbits, the whales, turtles and octopuses. 

Carrier of the holy cycles of life, I thank you, for the strength and the distinctness, to always find the sense again to counter steer: With firm paces my feet want to touch the stones; without blood on my hands the seeds shall be laid in the ground; my conversation with the trees shall be with a pure heart; a womb full with thankfulness and joy shall welcome your deliciousness; clear windows shall be my eyes for my children; who know the truth from my soul and straighten I shall my spine for a reconnection to the grand wonder of life.
