    Description

    Hello. We are Alba and Javier.

    Three years ago I decided to turn my life and try to live self-sufficiently in touch with nature. Here's how this project started.

    Objectives of the project are: as close as possible to the self, trying to keep the principles of permaculture, integrating and contributing what we can to improve the environment. The disclosure of this way of life, as a way to fight to change things.

    The work is and the country life is tough in the first stage but very rewarding.

    Thanks!!
