Learning how to live in harmony within a natural surrounding is the process behind daily life here...
It is possible to share this circumstances with other people who are interested in finding out about they're creative nature.
Set in a valley 8km from the nearest town, there's in the neighbourhood a main permaculture project, a school (unschool), communal gardens and projects, several homesteads and lots of unspoiled nature to wonder around.
This is not the place for a simple exchange of work for food and accommodation... The energy involved in hosting a human being has immeasurable value. The same has when someone is genuine in they're giving.
If you're not able to be relaxed without distractions (mobile, town, constant social life), ''work'' physically hard, wake up early, or be delighted by silence, then maybe this is not your best choice at the moment...
There's the possibility to obtain skills in most of what is necessary to life out of the system.
Also, if you're a musician, then you might find lots of people to jam and practice with...
Looking forward to meet you!
