We are living at a wonderful place outside from Bacalar, different houses, a beautiful garden with a lot of various plants and jungle. We have our own access to the lagoon with a Palapa and our own sailboat.
We are taking care of this place and running our heartproject - a compost and ecological farm.
First We collect the organic waste and cuttings from our gardens, then lift growing beds with all kind of matter and manures to make soil and grow our own food. The project is in the beginning and we need a lot of help with building, gardening, planting and composting. You can learn a lot about permaculture, growing your own food, building in a natural way... self motivated peeps are required.
We also run an ecoturistic company and sail along the lagoon in a sustainable and conscious way.
And now, the house bakery with Chispi Crim and her german recipes!
Spoken languages are spanish, english and german.
Not allowed: Cocacola people, if you fancy these kind of products you can either take a break and discover feeling good without them or have your sugar toxic stuff out side. We also don´t use toilet paper, plastics and any fast contained food. A beer and other fun is welcome once in a while, but once we live here we try to keep the place as clean as possible, and up to the every day jobs. So if you don´t know how to consume healthy, get to read a little about sustainable consume habits, which may include what you eat and what you use for hygiene.
Alternative activities in the place: Meditation groups, Jamming sessions, BBqs, Sailing adventures, Beach camps...
