    Description

    Hello, my name is Joan and I am looking for people interested in joining us on the construction of this amazing dream. We have been renovating some land to make it a place of exchange for local and foreign people to come and do workshops on sustainability and holistic topics. Our mission is to focus it on bio-construction, organic farming and community once we finish adapting the land.

    Currently we are still at a very early stage so it's all about doing some land work, rebuilding stone walls for the terraces, find water, taking care of the goats, removing the bramble, being in touch with nature and most importantly, dreaming with us!

    We want motivated people that would love to share different points of view, all ideas are welcome, experts, non-experts, people who are willing to learn and people who want to be in touch with nature.

    The idea is to build this project as a community with the support of every volunteer that comes to help out!
