  • Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    My father is a passionate farmer and I help him during 5 months, (part of the fall and winter) His knowledge and the local activities are indeed a very rich & cultural exchange. Spanish practice, sharing time with our family when they visit from Guadalajara, good food (traditional mexican & international fusion) and enjoying the "pajaretes" gathering with the farmers, listening to their stories and exchanging seeds, before starting to work. *Part of the fall & winter, when I am at the farm , I cook vegan food, practice pilates, mindfulness, art, food tastings.
