  • Description


    We are an agricultural estate of approximately 20 hectares, located in a rural area favored by natural resources, completely surrounded by mountains and a privileged view.

    We are currently developing a project that allows us to be self-sufficient and sustainable farm, so we ask for help for the development of agricultural work, such as planting trees and vegetables, gathering fruit and other crops, care of animals, we now have sheep, chickens, rabbits, and soon we will be adding more. We also develop composting activity. We are interested in receiving workawayers with knowledge or experience in permaculture, who are available to share their experiences with us.

    We seek to offer a life experience to our visitors, in the midst of nature, with a pure and relaxing atmosphere. We hope that volunteers who join us love nature, seek to enjoy and explore the benefits gained by living in harmony with our environment.

    The farm is located 7 km away from the town center, this is a rural community whose main economic activity is agriculture. The village is 1 hour and 30 minutes from the capital, with constant bus service to this and other sites.
