THE BEGINNING. 11 years ago I decided to realise my dream of living a better life. I wanted to live off grid, and be as self sufficient as possible. After looking at over 300 properties (my only criteria being water, land and seclusion) I came across 12 magical acres in the region of Murcia, nestled in the foot hills of the Sierra Espuna mountains and here is where Bagend was born…….
THE EARLY YEARS. Full of energy and eagerness I set out to create Bagend. Thinking I had all the time in the world and the resources to do it the first 4 years slipped by. Unfortunately when the Spanish economy crashed, the magazine I ran folded, and I was unable to continue with the dream. It was time to re-structure that dream and find a way to proceed with the creation of my beloved Bagend.
THE MIDDLE YEARS. Determined not to be beaten, I temporarily closed Bagend, found homes for all the animals and left to find a job. I am not yet back permanently but Bagend is stronger and even better than before. The dream has now developed with even greater passion to incorporate many exciting ventures: yoga and meditation retreats, photography holidays, permaculture workshops, sustainable building workshops, earth bag dome building to name but a few .
This beautiful site has so much to offer to so many, we have an organic vegetable garden, our own fresh mountain spring water, solar power throughout, a beautiful swimming pool, earthbag dome, stunning yoga platform on the side of the mountain, hammocks, orange and lemon trees, a tailor made pinewood meditation/relaxation cabin with views across the valley, outdoor showers so you can shower under the stars, and so much more…. Although not the dream I started out with- this new dream has enabled me to share the wonder of Bagend with many others who also fall in love with the natural beauty and wonderful energy of this special site
