  • Description


    We are a little family (Kal, Issa & Zayneb) of life artists, we are building a little oasis on a land close to Marrakech.
    We need help in building, gardening and all the infinite things you have to happily do when you finally go off grid...

    We still need to create a new Insta for the land… :)

    *** UPDATE ***
    We will be :
    - building tiny domes with a local technique, just big enough domes for a 2 persons bed
    - repairing our well completely and reviving our plot after those problems we had with the water well, like for example putting back the shadows above the plot and preparing the soil
    - finishing the watering reservoir which is also our natural swimming pool
    - building shadows as much as we can everywhere
    - and a lot more…
