  • Description


    Although the land has been in the family for several decades, starting in the year before Covid, and onward, I and my family have been learning from the land, and making more niches for nature to fill and prosper. The projects I have in mind are earth works, and swales, building a rudimentary greenhouse, rocket stove, food forest, and making the house itself more in-tune with the natural rhythms. Certain essentials are missing from the building, and some of our projects will be orbiting around making temporary solutions before the house is fully finished.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    My family is well traveled, but humble. we all have stories to share, and experiences to reflect on and be appreciative of. I'm more than sure that lengthy conversations will take place by our fire pit, at night. Memories and biochar is made during these magical times.

    If you enjoy beautiful views, nearby hiking trails, and working with the land, you would enjoy it here. We have many Oak, Olive, Fruit and Nut trees. If you have experience with gardening, or other permaculture-esc experiences, by all means, I would love to incorporate your ideas into the land. As I am just starting, organisation may be a bit haphazard, but its all part of the process. I want to help you help me help you. in 2022 I plan to plant many trees in the area to mitigate the effects of prolonged drought. I will need help with pruning, planting, digging swales, and baking biochar.

WIFI, a cozy bed, a large indoor and outdoor area.
