This is an old canary Finca over Tijarafe on the cosy island of La Palma, From our Area we have a fantastic view over Tijarafe and the Atlantic Ocean.
Our way of living is to live close to nature, reduce our eco footprint, low energy consumption and as less intervention in environment as needed. We want to show alternative, sustainable lifestyle based on permaculture (PDC at Autarca Matricultura at La Palma) natural farming and ecobuilding.
We are vegan.

We are seeking wolunteers who are interested and willing to learn what this place has got to offer. Our aim is that you learn a lot while you are working here and take benefit from the experience. We believe that everyone has important things to offer, areas of relative expertise and various talents, so we try to provide a space for sharing knowledge. We are looking for wolunteers to work on permaculture, eco-building, renovation/construction, natural farming.
Our main project is to reconstruct old finca, of which history has began more as 200 years ago, and lift it to a sustainable modern biodynamic Farm, by applying principles from permaculture, food forests, oasis gardening and eco building.
We try to understand what and why the people living here do. This Finca was now abandoned for 40 Years, the last time one lived here, was in a time there was no road.. The Area is spreaded over 820 - 910 M Altitude.. You can not expect any flat and easy way.. between two levels there are many times just some rocks you can use as stairs..
In this Environment we do reconstruction jobs, mostly building terrace walls from rocks.. working for the soil by cleaning, preparing mulch material, making charcoal and compost.. and all the tasks a garden needs..
