We are two sisters who moved from Portugal to Germany in late 2017 to work on an organic mushroom farm located in a small village situated in the idyllic Eiffel region.
We are looking for friendly people to share ideas and experiences to promote a lifestyle in harmony with nature and to help us with house and garden maintenece, cooking, language practice, etc.
We really like to share knowledge and experiences because we believe that is the best way to learn and to stay connected with other people.
We are pleased to teach about:
Cooking (vegetarian, vegan, gluten free);
Ferments and sprouts;
Cultivation of mushrooms;
How to keep animals ethically;
Natural cosmetics and ecological detergents;
Reuse of materials;
We would like to learn more about:
The above items;
Biointensive agriculture and biofertilization;
Self-construction and eco-construction;
Holistic therapies (including yoga and meditation);
And much more...
We hope to see you soon!
