    Description

    Welcome to our wonderful farm! Between the Moroccan imperial cities Fes and Meknes lies our piece of land of 10 hectares. Here we want to develop a new type of tourism!

    We want to create a space that is unique in its appearance and where people are welcome to live and camp.
    Our roots are based on permacultural philosophies, ecologic farming and thriving to be self sufficient. And for all the artsy and musically gifted people out there: we would also like the place to be beautiful and some background music is always appreciated! Feel free to use the instruments we have lying around.

    To be able to manifest our project we need open minded people to act, create and get in contact with the place, nature and animals. The place is already buzzing with animals: chickens, sheep, dogs, cats and a very funny little donkey called Marie Jeanne. They are a joy to have around but we need some human hands and enthusiasm to finish some ongoing projects. For now we are working on the olive trees. we have more than 1000 olive trees and they need to be prune an clear, so you think you can do that job please request to join us .
    i also looking for somebody to make video or pictures to make a crowdfunding for different things so if you like to work on a computer and you have a good english you should request me.


    The land is owned by a Moroccan/Swiss man. He is not always around, so you will probably only see me, Ben. So a bit more about me: I am 27 and originally from France. I was on my way to Morocco on the Ferry when I met Hamid (the owner) and he told me about his land and how he wanted to transform to a eco camping. Well... that was all that it took! now, a year later, I am still at the farm trying to make it an amazing place and overseeing the improvements! I love to relaxed vibe here but I love it more when nice people come here to help!

    Accommodation

    You can sleep in our Moroccan house, in a Moroccan tent in summer or in a large tipi.
    In the house I have a spare room with a bed for two persons. Since the weather is almost always nice, it is also possible to sleep closer to the stars in the thai house or tipi on a mattress.
    Water tap its clean to drink but volunteers can buy bottle waters in town if they don't wanna feel confortable to drink the local one
    We share the bathroom but you are also welcome to use the outdoor shower or our eco toilet. You can have a great view from there! ;)
    The kitchen is common space to use for everyone and breakfast always provide ( bread, olive oil, tea ,jam, butter) keep in mind you have to prepare by your self your breakfast and your lunch , if you wanna share the dinner with us you have to participate , if the owner's in the farm he will probably cook ,but if i'm alone il like to cook with my volunteers .i can give you more informations about cooking by message .
