    One day, the urge to leave the world of offices and research, and live in and with nature became urgent.
    After a few years of preparation, research of house (first in Belgium and then in France without result) and training in permaculture, fruit trees, berries, aromatic and medicinal herbs, Bach flowers, vegetable growing, internships with market gardeners, lactofermentation, preserves, reading books, etc, it happened: I finally found a wonderfull place to live independently, hands in the ground, head under the stars and savor the day.

    Creative, joyful, slightly spiritual, supportive, feminist, greedy, attentive, passionate about photography, I would be more concretely tempted to co-create a welcoming place to live.

    The house is located (Tigalate, La Palma, Canary Islands) on a plot of 5000m2 which should be transformed into a nourished garden with dry toilets, oven and solar dryer, showers, table of hosts, docus evenings, associative coffee, flea market, recycling, various workshops and residence of artists.

    The quiet and green island is very well served by public transport.
    It offers masses of beautiful marked walks, small museums, small towns or villages full of charm, amazing beaches and the possibility of "ploufs" everywhere. Small cafes and restaurants everywhere too.
    The Palmeros are very welcoming, kind and quiet. There is no pollution, 5G, noise, highway, mall... and full of stars, wind, strength and good energy!
