  • Description


    We are a family of peasant origin, whose objective is the protection of the environment and rural customs.
    We lived 5 years ago in the outskirts of the city of Popayán, 30 minutes from the urban area, in our farm we have a small forest, vegetable crops, coffee, banana, yucca, cane among others. In this space, you can see a wide variety of birds, beautiful sunsets, volcanoes and on clear nights you can see the stars.

    Our project seeks to create spaces for the exchange of knowledge and experiences for the protection of the environment through practices such as: organic agriculture, permaculture, reforestation, care of water resources and art. At the same time, we seek to honor the memory of grandparents and uncles who during their lives, were dedicated to creating spaces of conviviality through traditional, artistic and environmentally sustainable practices.

    Most of the members of our family do not speak English, but this has not been an impediment to share with people from other countries because our goal is that together we can live a rewarding experience and mutual growth.

    about two years we have been inactive on the platform for travel reasons but again we are willing to this experience

    Vivimos hace 5 años en las afueras de la ciudad de Popayán, a 30 minutos del área urbana, en nuestra finca tenemos un pequeño bosque, cultivos de hortalizas, café, plátano, yuca, caña entre otros. En este espacio, se puede observar una gran variedad de aves, hermosas puestas de sol, volcanes y en noches claras puede ver las estrellas.

    Nuestro proyecto busca crear espacios para el intercambio de conocimientos y experiencias para la protección del medio ambiente a través de prácticas tales como: agricultura orgánica, permacultura, reforestación, cuidado de los recursos hídricos y el arte. Al mismo tiempo, buscamos honrar la memoria de los abuelos y tíos que Durante sus vidas, se dedicaron a crear espacios de buena convivencia a través de prácticas tradicionales, artísticas y ambientalmente sostenibles.

    La mayoría de los integrantes de nuestra familia no habla inglés, pero esto no ha sido impedimento para compartir con personas de otros paises ya que nuestro objetivo es que entre todos podamos vivir una experiencia gratificante y de crecimiento mutuo.
