Our Story

Tribodar is an association born in 2010 out of a dream to create an environment which facilitates learning, sharing and connection for people of all ages. Holistic and sustainable living is at the core of Tribodar. Since the beginning of the project we have received many people from all corners of the world to volunteer and participate in our permaculture and creativity gatherings, open learning events, healing retreats and our Tribojam Festival. Now, we feel ready to add to our project a new educational level: a homeschooling co-operation between families. This is how the FAMILY PROJECT was born.
