  • Beschreibung


    This is a 10 hectare organic farm that is just being established.

    Our aim is to be as self-sufficient as possible and farm in a morally responsible manner, placing value on our environment above profit.

    We are situated on the river and only 3km from the beach. The site has fresh water from a well and beautiful river and sea views.

    Farm is 8 km from the cafes and nightlife of Lagos and 2.5km from the village facilities of Odiáxere. It’s on the estuary and only 2km from a beautiful lagoon which is a magnet for kite surfers.

    People with construction, fruit tree, vegetable garden and soil regeneration expertise are especially welcome, but anyone with an interest in horticulture and self sufficiciency is welcome.

    I am looking for people to stay at least one month and ideally 3 months or more.
