  • Description


    We are a young couple starting a permaculture project. We live 20km away from Montevideo, near Joaquin Suarez in Canelones department. Last summer we start to build our house with the help of volunteers and want to continue with the construction next summer. Also we are three now because a few month ago our child has born so we need more room to live our three.

El verano pasado comenzamos a construir nuestra casa con la ayuda de voluntarios y queremos continuar con la construcción el siguiente verano. También ahora somos tres porque unos meses atrás nuestra hija nació entonces necesitamos más espacio para vivir los tres.
