Hello, my name is Estephanie. I am Mexican girl from Tepic, Nayarit, a land of Cora and Huichol ethnic groups, and I am in charge for the first time of the permaculture project of my partner Alejandro, who has been away for a few months.
Our project in which we work to develop a more sustainable and harmonious life with nature through practices and systems inspired by it.
Currently I find myself and my two beautiful dogs living on the ranch, I like to practice yoga, meditation, work in the garden, as well as cooking, I usually participate every Sunday in a local market that some members of the community organize and promote local consumption of the producers of the region.
Our project is located on the outskirts of a small picturesque town of no more than 7,000 inhabitants.
We are in the rainy season so now access to the ranch becomes more challenging and adventurous. We are 25 min walk from the town through stables and paddocks.
The ranch has all the facilities of a rustic and comfortable life, we have some fruit trees, a family garden, a chicken coop, a small greenhouse, a mandala garden and other technologies sponsored by nature.
