  • Description

    Description

    We are Natalia & Eyal, a Colombian/Israeli couple. together we run a non-profit organisation
    We live on a beautiful farm 80 km from Bogota, in a bamboo house in the middle of a mango plantation. It's really a paradise! The weather is perfect year-round (15 ºC to 30 ºC), there are lots of tropical fruits and several rivers a short walking distance from our farm.

    Over time, after hosting over 300 amazing volunteers we realised that what we really offer is more then "just" a farm experience. we offer the opportunity to experience an alternative life style for the modern rat race. an alternative where abundance is created by the the creative power of mind and heart combined together. where knowledge, support and resources are to be shared generously. we do our best to contribute to the local underprivileged community in this beautiful part of Colombia and we surly feel embraced by them in return.

    Our goal is to continue developing our project keeping in mind the conservation and empowerment of the native habitat and at the same time to help develop our surrounding, leading and taking part in meaningful projects related to education, agriculture, conservation work, animal care, construction, and more.

    We eat healthy, practice yoga and capoeira. There's much to be done, as far as the imagination goes.
    we feel blessed and inspired to make the difference even in small daily things .
    Each one makes a difference
