  • Help


    We focus on Bioconstruction so we are constantly building something with bamboo, earth and natural techniques. Some tasks are: make the mixture of clay and straw, build adobe walls, apply plasters and coatings, bamboo and wood framing, etc..

    There is also a trout farm where you can help feeding the fish and cleaning the tanks. On the eatible forest,there is planting, trimming and weed cleaning.

    Sometimes we have workshops, when this happens, we need help in the kitchen prepearing meals or cofee breaks and also help in teaching some techniques (that you have learned previously).
