GCAS is developing a self-sustainable farm on crypto that’s off the grid and a base for innovative art, writing, learning and research.

Daniel Reeves & Luanne McKinnon

have generously provided GCAS College with this special resource to better our world.


GCAS’ farm in France, set in the Périgord region of the southwest, and will be the site of future education projects for the public. It is currently the research and development base; Le Caillou (“the pebbles”) will become a future site for original scholarship in a bucolic setting of 18 acres amid vineyards in the Bordeaux region.

What makes this centre unique is its located in wine country in the Bordeaux region, and its proximity to Plum Village—the first monastic community founded by Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh (Thay) in the West.

The plan is to create a self-sustaining permaculture centre of learning, expression and healing by 2021.
