The Tribe Project Goa
The Tribe is a creative eco-project based in the lush greenery of Goa’s tropical jungle, at the doorstep of one of the world’s eight richest biodiversity reservoirs: The Western Ghats of India. The project strives to reconnect communities back into nature using music and arts. Since January 2017, our mission has been to rewild nearly 60,000 m2 of former cashew plantation and transform a disturbed, mismanaged piece of forest back into a thriving, self-sufficient eco-reserve creative hub.
The project is also engaged in non-profit outreach programmes including a free 24hr wildlife rescue service, creative and environmental community projects, education, and sustainable tourism development.
Permaculture principles inform much of the design of the space and we are constantly working to evolve with creative, cross-disciplinary solutions to problems around waste, water management and sustainable building. We are still in the initial stages of observing the land and learning about local ecology to develop structures, live on and eat from the land whilst protecting and enriching the balance and biodiversity of wildlife and native plant and tree species.
