  • Description



    my name is federico. I am from montevideo but i am now living in maldonado in a farm near the sea. A few years ago I realized i wanted to live out from the city and more in contact with the nature and i moved to this land that i share with my sibilings. I live with my girlfriend, Lua, her two kids, Eloi (9) and Aru (6) and our baby girl Emma. we have our house, a couple of greenhouses, an orchard, trees, 2 dogs and 3 cats.
    the project is based in permaculture, organic farming and bioconstrction.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are experimenting with several things. Bioconstruction, alternative energies, organic farming.
    You will have the chance to participate in the project almost from scratch, help in the design and execution. This will probably be the seed of a future community.
