    Description

    We are a couple with a 14-year-old boy and a 5-year-old boy. There are twelve boys and girls between the ages of 1 and 16 in the village. It is a family project where we are investing a lot of energy trying to be very respectful with the earth when building using nearby and ecological or recycled materials. We are very friendly and respectful and consider ourselves good hosts. On the construction site we have experimented a lot with natural materials and construction techniques. we have lived in a yurt for 12 years while we were building the house. Right now, we are already living in the house although there are still things to finish. And we are focusing on the outer space: garden, workshop ...In the same town there are families with the same concerns as us with whom we share common spaces, materials ...
    We work in different fields such as crafts (making puppets), meditation and mindfulness classes, art therapy and gardening.

    Somos una pareja con un joven de 14 años y un niño de 5 años. En el pueblo hay doce niños y niñas entre 1 y 16 años. Es un proyecto familiar donde estamos invirtiendo mucha energía intentando ser muy respetuosos con la tierra a la hora de construir usando materiales cercanos y ecológicos o reciclados. Somos muy amigables y respetuosos y nos consideramos buenos anfitriones. En la obra hemos experimentado mucho con materiales naturales y técnicas de construcción. De momento hemos vivido en una yurta durante 12 años mientras construíamos la casa. Ahora mismo, ya estamos viviendo en la casa aunque faltan cosas para terminar. Y nos estamos enfocando en el espacio exterior: huerta, taller....En el mismo pueblo hay familias con las mismas inquietudes que nosotros con los que compartimos espacios comunes, materiales...
    Trabajamos en diferentes ámbitos como la artesanía (haciendo marionetas), clases de meditación y mindfulness, arte terapia y jardinería.
