    Description

    Hi!
    We are Sofia and Ronny,
    Long time as passed before we finally have made the decision to change our lifes, escaping from normal and busy life in the center of a industrial town in the north west of Italy.
    Finally we broke phisical and mental chains to follow the freedom of being ourself, to bloom in harmony with the earth and nature.
    Then we decided to move in a place far away from negative thoughts and any other kinds of pollution.
    Now we stay in the south-east side of La Palma, in a nice place called La Rosa. It's no so distant from the capital Santa Cruz and the airport. It's surrounded by mountains, forest, and it has wonderful sea and islands views. If you like nature and a quiet life you'll be happy.
    We welcome people who know or want to know more about sustainable way of life, recycle and reuse, consciousness and permaculture.
    On the amazing island of La Palma, stay with us on our finca and help us to develop our permaculture project!
    We are in the exciting first stages of planning, to transform this land in a spot of abundance and happiness.
    We're looking for strong volunteers to help us in the garden and, at the same time, others as much as strong to face our little ones!
    The help in the garden is a mix of earth working, terracing, rising beds, landscaping, some stone walling, setting up the drip irrigation system and so on.
    The help in the house is to stay with our kids and a little bit of housecleaning.
