We are 2 families with 3 small children, with a vision of creating a sustainable space, to live, to host events and workshops in the furure. Within all that we do we gather and share information regarding regenerative farming, permaculture, self development, natural building and renewable energy systems. We are in the stage of development, living on a farm with blueberry plantation, small forest, 2 houses, one in need of deeper renovation although offers a few bedrooms for the stayers who prefer to stay inside.
