    Description

    Hello, we are Heidi and Paco. Since 2001 we are living in Spain. A year ago we bought a farm in the southeast of Spain in Bullas with apricot trees, olive trees, walnut trees, nisperos, and other varied fruit. We are dedicated to organic and permaculture agriculture. We want to transform the farm into an edible forest to feed the people who live on it. We also run the non-profit association with about 50 to 70 families for the distribution of organic products by the network of producers in the Region of Murcia. And to complete our task we grow plants and select the seeds for our seed bank.

    Arrive is posible from wendsday to Sunday.

    Hola, somos Heidi y Paco. Desde 2001 estamos viviendo en España. Hace un año hemos comprado una finca en el sureste español en Bullas con albaricoqueros, oliveros, nogales, nisperos, y otra fruta variada. Nos dedicamos a la agricultura ecológica y de permacultura. Queremos transformar la finca en un bosque comestible para alimentar a la gente que vive en ella. También preparamos los pedidos para unos 50 a 70 familias para el reparto de productos ecológicos por parte de la red de productores en la Región de Murcia. Y para completar nuestra tarea cultivamos plantas y seleccionamos las semillas para nuestro banco de semillas.

    Llegada a la finca entre miércoles a domingo
