  • Description


    We are gardeners, builders, permaculturists and artists seaking to teach, learn and share.

    We aim to simply live in the jungle and protect the land.

    Only accessible by foot, the base camp is a 25 min hike from Minca, beautiful little town of international and colombian culture where you will find a true buena onda. Lively little town.

    Our little piece of paradise is situated in the Sierra Nevada, a wild and powerful jungle of majestic trees, magical cacao, waterfalls, birds and snakes.

    See below for the main goals of this season.

  • Accommodation


    The accommodation is lovely but quite basic. There is no electricity or wifi, but there is phone service.

    We have a beautiful fully functioning outdoor kitchen. Compost toilets. Shower with a view ;)

    Good thing if you have your own tent and stuff. But we do have some tents and small mattresses.

    Also, we are 25 min hike from town, there is no road access. Having boots is a plus, there are snakes out there :) Don't be scared but be cautious.

    We share the food costs, so no work is expected. We rely on the spirit of community.
    We always make truly amazing food with what seems to cost very little.
