  • Help


    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..
