    Beschreibung

    We are a couple with two babies, trying to establish a forest garden, based on permaculture principles, in a 12 acres farm we have Cantabria, in the north of Spain.

    I'm a 49 years old business consultant, though I spend most of my time working in the farm (@5 days a week). My wife, 46, has also a management background and works in a factory near Bilbao, where she stays 4 to 5 days a week, spending the weekend in the farm.

    We are both fluent in Spanish and English and she also speaks German.

    We bought the farm 11 years ago, completely refurbished the house (@ 2.500 sqf.) and are now working on designing and building the infrastructure (barns, chicken coops, green houses, fences, well, swales, ponds, tanks, terraces, raise beds...) and planting trees, shrubs and herbs to create a forest garden and sustainable farm.

    We had little previous experience on farming or manual works, but are reading a lot on the subjects and are not scared of learning by doing (though we would really appreciate some help from someone with hands on experience on those areas).

    We have a cat, three dogs, beehives, hens, ducks, geese and ponies.
    The house is in a quiet place in the mountains, 1,2 km. from a small village and 17 km. from the coast (Laredo beach).

    There are many nice places around for sightseeing, with gorgeous mountains, caves and beautiful beaches. You can relax around the place, or borrow our mountain bicycles to move around.

    We think this can be a wonderful place for a couple interested in permaculture and/or willing to enjoy some quiet time in contact with nature, as well as an excellent base camp to explore the north of Spain.
