    Please contact me in ESPAÑOL o INGLES por favor.

    About me
    My name is Don
    I have a good sense of humor, i open the doors of my house expectig you respect it and take care of the place, respecting all of us at same time. And keep order and clean.

    I like working on farm, wood, constrution. Also play risk and board games, deep conversations but also i take my time for myself.. i enjoy anime and good food, also beeing surrounded by nice, conscious and smart humans, and as an open minded person i like new experiences taking care of each others integrity, but having as much fun and grow as posible.

    I hope you take advantage of the interpersonal exchange between all the people involve when you stay here and also lets keep a comunication clear, direct, respectfull and oportune between all of us please.

    In 2016 i came to live here with the intention of discovering how uposible is to just be free and survive, in peace, i did not have faith or doubt, just the wish of jumping into an unknown space of land and nature, away from any source of social and economic support. Just with my tools, one phone and small savings.

    Some years ago (2014) i lived here in this house and i found peace, and spiritual strength thanks God, i want to share with more people that. I like to be aware in that human dimension. And in a close future i want to share that learning with more people who really wants a real change on their existence.

    From January 2017 until June 2021 i have been learning what is needed for farming here, and also making this area able to stand over weather change, and also removing rocks from soil to be able to begin farming; as well rebuilding has been a whole experience since i just knew few basic things in the begining of this. Main sourse of knowledge for me is people.

    Since July 2021 this place is ready to start planting to become selfsustainable and first thing to do is to build a green house, plus i will look for more seeds. You can bring some please.
    Next to the future green house i most make my own organic repelents and compost for many the plants in the fields.

    The vision of my project is become a complete big farm, and develop a good relationship with my old and new neighbours, local and internationals, and hopefully build together a functional comunity. And latter to create an cultural center.

    Selfsustainability, holistic and integral health, are my goals and i invite people with vision and desire to work on that vision to come and join for some weeks, months or even more. And support economically if you desire to.

    I have planted and/or harvest seasons fruits, roots, and herbs for seasoning and for medicinal tee.

    You are welcome to use herbs and spices, lemons and chesnuts and roots from the farm for free, however as i am not selfsustainable yet you will need to bring your own food from store wich are 500meters from the house.

    I produce and sell CBD oil and Tinctures.

    In my house you will meet my dog Kamala. Please mention her when you contact me so i know you readed my profile.

    My policy about alcohol, cigarret and canabis: its allowed as long as you can respect the people arround you and still be able of take care of yourself.
