    Description

    Hello!. The Garden is a community habitat that is in Barra de Valizas ... Rocha ... Uruguay.
    A small and beautiful village of fishermen and hippies of the Uruguayan Atlantic coast. We live in this town since 1992 but as concept and family enterprise was born in 2009. We are: Mama Daniela (here I introduce myself), Alegria, Marina, Lilah And Maya (my daughters), Patrick (companion) and his son Gurvan. In team we support a natural marine coastal area, inhabiting it with the least environmental impact and sharing it with tourists and explorers. In beach season we rent 4 small cabins with capacity for two and three people that are built with several techniques of bio architecture and bio-construction. Natural wood and fibers are mostly the materials used.
    2casitas Geodesicas and casita in the tree that are integrated to the large garden that surrounds the main house where also there are several places for camping There is also a communal kitchen of wood and green roof with reciproca structure that is the center of the spirit of the garden and also a peqieña Octagonal cottage with showers and dry toilets.
    All the organic wastes produced in the place are composted and then reused in the orchard and nursery as well as in the trees. We extract the exquisite drinking water from the subsoil and maintain a healthy cycle using wetlands built for the disposal and filtering of the waste water and return them in a good way to the environment.
    Between July and November we take care of the structural support of the place and the landscape. We give workshops on bioconstruction and organize constructive mingas with the whole community.
    This is the time of the year we receive volunteers !!!
    It is a very rich moment of the year where the exchange of knowledge generates life and art.for those who arrive and for whom we are.
