    We are a band of eclectic woman that have joined forces to create our dream reality!

    Meny years of manifestation has aloud us to finally start our dream project . A space were we can come together as tribe and shear knowledge, art,music ,food, permaculture ,natrual medicine and everything Els in between! A cultural house of epic proportions!

    As the mama bear of the project and mama of 1 tiny human I am hoping to raise my son sourneded buy inspiring people and ideas ! The space we have cultivated is a blank canvas at the moment. There is a reasonable size space for a permacultur garden were we will eventually host introduction to permaculture courses and Permaculture design courses, there is a beautiful space for art creation , workshop space ,dining area , vegan / vegetarian restaurant and cooking class space. We will also be turning the roof into a living class room / movement/ meditation space!

    The goal is also to create a mycologi with surrounding projects and community's to encourage community involvement, to understand and bring awareness to being more ecologically friendly and creating a feeling of community support!

    Right now we are working with 3 locals to clean up the space. All managment is working unpaid for the beggning part of the project and volunteering our time and energy aswell !

    We are hoping to one day be considered the heart space of the town , were everyone is welcome! Were we can learn and grow as a local and international tribe !

It will be your responsibility to advertise your workshop while you are here , and up to you if you want to do it donation based or for cover charge ( if cover is charged we would need a small percentage of that charge) and a percentage of donation if it is over a certain amount.
    We will also need our workshop leaders to help with general upkeep of the space (cleaning and organizing)

    This person needs to be kind and patient and find joy in being with small humans and learning from them ..they will need to help during the day with my son. And also help with children on days were we have community projects working with mamas .
