We are a family of 5. We live close to the center of Todos Santos. We have 1 dog, 4 cats, and 2 ducks. We all enjoy getting to know new people and hear about the wide world.
We have a plant nursery on another property close by (5 minutes drive) This is where we are welcoming workaway friends. We are there most days working on gardens, nursery upkeep tasks and open for business. Friends of ours (2couples) are currently camping/working there long term.
We create large compost bins and fill them with all the organic matter from the plants and palms to create good soil.
We work on having vegetable gardens, just starting that up again now in October after the summer heat.
We have a plant nursery and can use help with watering, trimming the dry leaves off, weeding, and gathering organic materials for composting.
The nursery is just 3 minutes drive (20 minutes walk) from the center of Todos Santos.
There is a fresh water spring river at the nursery, and a palm forest. The soil is excellent for growing vegetables very deep pure silt. We have material for setting up a big drip system for vegetable farming a large area, this is something we hope to focus on in the coming months.
The bathroom systems are small scale dry compost toilet, well managed and we have had success with this method for years.
We have had the nursery here for 19 years and there are many many large plants and trees much shade and privacy.
