Area: Canary Islands- FuerteventuraHola! I consider myself a daughter of Mother Earth and Father Sun. I am a mother of a ten year old daughter and a eleven year old son. We live in a rural area on the outskirts of the capital of Fuerteventura. I enjoy living in the countryside, where we have a greenhouse, garden and land to grow fruit and vegetables. During the year I teach art in school. My dream is to finish building a workshop here in my home with natural materials such as earth, wood, recyclables as a place to give classes, to teach and form a small school alternative, especially for children but also for older; and begin building a small geodesic dome on the ground to make a bathhouse, temascal, and a tipi for meetings, meditate, sing, play music, celebrate etc. Nací en Argentina, soy italiana de sangre, y me considero hija de la Madre Tierra y el padre Sol. Soy madre de una hija diez años y un niño de once, vivimos en una zona rural, a las afuera de la capital de Fuerteventura. Me gusta vivir en el campo, tenemos una pequeña huerta, un jardín y terreno para cultivar frutales. Durante el año doy clases de arte en las escuelas. Mi sueño es terminar de construir un taller aquí en mi casa, con materiales naturales, tierra y madera y reciclaje, para poder dar clases y formar una pequeña escuelita alternativa, para pequeños y para grandes; además de un pequeño domo geodesico en el terreno, para hacer un temascal, y un tipi para tener un sitio para encontrarnos para meditar, cantar, tocar música, festejar...
