Bioterra is a non profit organisation aiming to develop
ecosystems where man and nature can joyfully expand together.

 As an Ecological Transition Laboratory, we want to help people

to establish on agricultural land in order to create new paradises

To face the greenhouse effect and capting the CO2, we believe that planting forests is a credible solution. But it needs to do be done massively. And under the pressure of an increased value of a dead tree, we are facing some radical oppositions. Much more than planting, we will have to protect it !


Then you realize that beyond plantation, many aspects of live could be considered. Therefore, we started on a white page where, inevitably, it brought out some other crucial questions.

Where to live, what to eat?

How to live, what to build?

How to collaborate with a mix of interest?


Land's local Design

To find the best balance between planting trees, construction and cultures


Personnal or Shared?

Light Personal Construction combined with Communal infrastructures


The creation of a tool to help groups in their decision making process

Therefore, these are the reasons why we define ourselves as an economic transition laboratory.


After a period of researches, tests and various developments, we suggest the development of an agroforestry program directly followed by agro-tourism projects. It puts forward new ways to harvest and to take care of the land, to build with an eco-consciousness, and to live together through communal principle and collective intelligence. For this project, we are proud to propose a model of efficient gouvernance. 


Fields of activities:

   Our goal is to provide:

  • Assistance in the production of landscape architecture :  paths, cultivated areas, plantations, personal and communal areas, networks (water & electricity), etc.

 Practically :

   It is with pride that together, investors, partners and the whole team, for eleven years, we have       

  already set up:

  • Effective acquisition of two pilot's plots: 10 hectares in Costa Rica,13 hectares in Morocco,  

  • Develop a farm on the land in Morocco with a "wwoofers" (cf wwoof organisation),

  • Launching of a social and societal laboratory in Belgium with multiple collaborative activities,

  • Setting of urban vegetable gardens and hydroponic crops in close collaboration with a team of market gardeners in Belgium,

  • 7 years of running an ecolodge in Morocco to increase our knowledge regarding  best practice of hotel's management,

  • Development of a collective intelligence application (Donkeys) for decision-making in groups

  What remains to be done?


    Do the values ​​of Bioterra resonate with you? Get on board!
