    We are based on agroforestry and permaculture principles, aiming build bioconstruction structures (dry toilet, chicken coop, nursery seedlings community kitchen and music studio) and agroforestry management for food production (planting of seedlings / seeds, digging contour lines, garden irrigation).

    Agroforestry and bioconstruction tasks are distributed according to current priorities. Houseworking tasks are part of daily activities (sweeping and washing areas in common/ doing the dishes), help in our Cafe and tourist assistance. If you want, you can cook something that is part of your culture.

    La Agrofloresta del Lobo se basa en principios agroforestales y permacultura, teniendo como objetivo la bioconstrucción de estructuras (baño seco, gallinero, vivero de mudas y cocina comunitaria (futuro estudio de música) y el manejo de la Agroforestación para producción de alimentos (plantación de mudas / Semillas, cavar curvas de nivel, riego de huertas).

    Las tareas en la agroforestación y la bioconstrucción se distribuyen de acuerdo con las prioridades del momento.

    Las actividades domésticas forman parte de las actividades diarias (barrer y lavar áreas en común y lavavajillas) ayuda en el café y atención al turista. Cuando quieras, puedes cocinar algo que forma parte de tu cultura.
