WHERE IS IT ALL HAPPENING?
The UnSchool’s CO Project is a unique rural regeneration brain spa retreat project in the lake side mountain town of Serra, Tomar (1.5 hours from Lisbon). The property has 150 olive and fruit trees, animals, 3 farm houses and an old olive Mill that will being converted into a 8 room boutique ‘brain spa’ accommodation concept to host events and cultural programs as well as serve as the home for the experimental knowledge lab, The UnSchool offering likeminded social enterprises an off site sustainably designed retreat facility. We will eventually also create curated cultural programs around systems change, sustainable and regenerative design.
The project started in June 2017 and so far has had the 100 year old farmhouse restored into a 4 bedroom guesthouse, a small cottage for the director, and an outdoor eating area is being established for summer programs. The farm is being regenerated and new garden produce being planted. The best way to understand the project is to go to the COProject.co website.
We will be in Phase 1 development until the end of 2018, a rustic stage where we will run small intimate programs and experiences as part of our slow growth.
