    Description

    Hey there!

    The finca is an agricultural estate of approximately 20 hectares, located in a rural area favored by natural resources, completely surrounded by mountains and a privileged view.

    We are currently developing a project that allows us to recycle our plastic trash into new treasures to reduce and reuse the garage we and our community produces. In collaboration with a local, green initiative we are gathering the plastic waste from nature and households to transform it into better environmental awareness. With the income from the recycled products we support local and worldwide projects like reforestation activities, circular economy systems and educational programs.

    Also, we are aiming to be a sustainable farm, so we would love you to support us in the development of a permaculture garden, such as planting trees and vegetables, gathering passion fruits, avocados and other crops, taking care of our animals (we have sheep, cows, chickens, rabbits, cats and dogs).

    We are working organic and with self made compost remedies.

    Receiving workawayers green thumbs and other creative experiences would be a pleasure for us!
    People who are open to learn and exchange their skills and experience with us are warmly welcome.

    We seek to offer a life experience to our visitors, in the midst of nature, with a pure and relaxing atmosphere. You will live in rustic wooden cabins with a breathtaking view. We hope that volunteers who join us love nature, seek to enjoy and explore the benefits gained by living in harmony with our environment.

    This experience will definitely reconnect you with nature and your inner purpose!

    The farm is located 7 km away from the town center, this is a rural community whose main economic activity is agriculture. The village is 1 hour and 30 minutes from the capital, with constant bus service to this and other sites.
