Over the last four years The SoulFire Project has organized, participated and collaborated in many projects. From sustainability workshops, forums, and festivals to fundraising concerts, promotional films, and music projects, we have managed to support the project and our mobile community (ranging from 2 to 20 people) while inspiring fundamental change in the way we live, growing this network and the movement towards a more sustainable future.

The SoulFire Seed Bank - A new initiative of the SoulFire Project to gather, store, and exchange organic, local seeds with the communities and eco-villages we meet on the way south. The idea is to promote bio-diversity, keeping a sufficient store of these seeds and to be able to offer a variety for people to choose from, in exchange for other organic, local seeds.
