  • Description

    Description

    We are just starting a project of gardening, following some of the philosophical principles of permaculture 7 kilometers from Ribadeo.
    We have some animals, chickens, rabbits, horse and 2 cats for the moment, and one garden to achieve self-reliance with little maintenance, using many perennial vegetables, annuals, and cereals, fruit trees and berry bushes. We are starting one big food forest too, and some Syntropic Agroforestry plantation.
    We need help in many aspects; planting and propagation of plants and trees, mowing grass, taking care of the garden, moving the horse and feeding him...We also also have many building projects going on, new chicken houses, ponds, renovation of the buildings, greenhouses etc.

It is an organic farm with land outside and greenhouses, with more than 20 years experience. So there are plenty of things to learn if you are open to it.
