  • Description


    I live in the farm with my two sons , Amanda y Tomas both autist .Amanda are at the farm only half of the time as they move between their mother's houses. Both children love having visitors and sharing the space and activities we do on the farm and the art, exercise and yoga workshops.

    Our farm has chickens, ducks, cats a dog and soon a horse. We grow organic food and bee houses. Our mission is to share and educate people and especially children through our activities on the land, through contact with and being creative with our bodies and minds.

    We want to help social organizations and cultural groups by hosting their activities in our workshop domo. We already have weekly classes of yoga, kick boxing and art classes for children and teenagers. We are also working towards placements for special needs children and theatre workshops.

    Now we are developing eco tourism accommodation in treehouses with composting toilets, mountain biking and improving the access to our waterfall. Tourists will be able to learn and eat the native forest fruits such as maqui, copihue (also the national flower of Chile), Chilean hazelnut and murtilla. Inside the farm tourists and visitors can see the permaculture garden, the bees and feed the chickens and ducks to complete their experience.
