    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Ecological/experimental and traditional building techniques, I am also a licenced architectural engineer. Deep contact to nature. I would like to also attempt farming using with local vegetation. There is also an original functioning pizza oven, for which we will organize collective pizza activities.

    More pictures of all work carried out so far can be asked for on demand. Presence of pets is also allowed and encouraged.

    Help

    The scope of the help needed is to build a sustainable housing/hostel complex. The future use of this structure will be to host backpackers from around the world, offering an economically viable solution within an authentic rustic landscape, portraying a preserved example of building techniques pertaining to a pre-petroleum peasants' animal farm.

    Participants will be granted food, sleeping accommodations, and will be asked to work two days and will be free on the third day to enjoy the wilderness, the seaside, and the coastal towns.

    Musical, artistic and nature-friendly interests are greatly appreciated.

    Presently I need the following skills:

    - building/woodworking
    - farming
    - social networking,
    - general cleaning/cooking.
