  • Description

    Description

    We are a family with 2 children with whom we learn through experience. We are starting a new permacultural project in a magical place on the banks of the Guavio reservoir in Gachalá (Cundinamarca, Colombia), where we swim and meditate. We want to make common-unity to protect this biodiverse region and we need hands to build it.

Queremos hacer comun-unidad para proteger esta región biodiversa y necesitamos manos para construirla.
