    You can be really helpfull in here and also share some good moments.

    At the greenhouse we have 10 bamboo species, 8 palm threes species and some other plants.
    At the farm we have our beautiful chicken & their eggs, always trying to grow them with love and being respectful with mother nature.
    At the plantation we have bamboo, coconut palm threes, lemon, starfruit, lychee and some other fruits.

    Let me know if you want to participate in a specifically project or you are willing to help wherever you can.

    We are located in Medellín De Bravo, Veracruz (14 has), 15 minutes near from the touristic Port of Veracruz and Boca del Rio. Come and show us something from your home, we will show you ours.
