    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    How to make a sustainable garden, build a house, make arts, fencing in natural material. All to go after the permaculture perspective. This place is a very magical place. The energies are unbelievable, and the mountain is like an amplifier.

    I have been hosting volunteers from all over the world the last years, and I am now using my on-site workshops for bamboo, wood, metal, stone, concrete, glass, to teach building any self-sustainable systems from scratch. Including different house building techniques.

    There are hundreds of mountain bike/hiking paths throughout the area.
    In our time off, we might decide to go exploring the mountains, just hang out in the sun or in the hammocks in the shade, tell stories and play the guitar in front of the fireplace in the evenings. We might go to the river, visit some farms or towns/cities or check out the many well kept local secrets. Like the secret bathing place of many waterfalls, theres even one that has 3 waterfalls in one, its highly recommended.

    I'm taking in the feeling of being surrounded by former volunteers, now close friends and almost like a family. Sharing their dream with me.
    And how we are helping each other and new visitors to discover, remember and become the ones we need to be.

    A place to grow personally and spiritually and receive healing.
    A place to meditate and contemplate.
    A place to discover our own powers.
    A place where we found a higher and more powerful value than money, to keep our lives going and having the freedom to make mistakes. And the responsibility to correct them.
    A world of free-share and appreciation for who we really are.
    Allowing us the full attention to nature and our own connection with it.

    As the light breeze, that has kept us cool from the strong sun, fade away along with the daylight,
    we all take a moment watching the brightness and clarity of the stars in the sky, up here at this altitude.
    And we all find the connection with each other in the gratitude and excitement for what life soon will present for us,
    of new possibilities and new people... tomorrow.
    Just as we all return to the privacy of our homes with our loved ones.

    Im hoping to spend many lovely days with the company of all of you.

  • Help


    We would like our guests to help with seeds, planting, weeding, watering, and gathering the produce. The site is situated on the side of an old volcano which means that the earth is really fertile, basically every seed placed in the ground - Will sprout! The farming and gardening are under the supervision of me with experience of organic gardening in the area. Theres also oppurtunity for artworks, creative building, free thinking and ideas in making the space as expanded as possible. Food preparation would be shared in daily meals in a community setting. Visitors are welcomed, if you are in the area, please contact to arrange a visit.
