  • Description


    My mom and I have a 5-hectare estate in a FInca 15 minutes from the city of Popayan, Cauca Colombia. We have an ecological project that involves adapting the grounds of the estate, in order to share with nature, guided by the teachings and contributions of experts in this field, focusing on organic farming, green building and water management.
    We have chickens, dogs, cats and we wanna have a cow, a goat and other animals more.
    The house is small but full of love, it is equipped with two bedrooms, a lounge and outdoor baths.
    In the back, we can find one table room, not finished (but very soon will be) house which is only composed of a large room and an outdoor patio.
    We also have a large camping area and we can provide one or two mattresses if necessary.
    We receive friends, volunteers and institutions often to exchange knowledge and advance the many actions that we dream, we are happy, we work in the morning till evening with a variety of good music and lots of energy!

    Mi mamá y yo tenemos una finca de 5 hectáreas en una vereda a 15 minutos de la ciudad de Popayan, Cauca- Colombia. Tenemos un proyecto ecológico que consiste en adecuar los terrenos de la finca, con el fin de compartir con la naturaleza, guiados por las enseñanzas y los aportes de personas conocedoras del tema, con enfoque en agricultura orgánica, bioconstrucción y manejo de aguas.
    Tenemos Gallinas, perros, gatos y pensamos tener una vaca, una cabra y otros animales mas.
    La casa es pequeña pero llena de amor, esta equipada con dos habitaciones, una pequeña sala y baños exteriores.
    En la parte de atrás, podemos encontrar una casa en tabla, no terminada (pero muy pronto lo estará) la cual solo esta compuesta por una amplia habitación y un patio exterior.
    También contamos con una amplia zona de camping y podemos facilitar una o dos colchonetas si es necesario.
    Recibimos amigos, voluntariado e instituciones con frecuencia con objetivo de intercambiar conocimientos y adelantar las muchas acciones que tenemos en sueño, Somos felices, trabajamos por la mañana hasta la tarde con diversidad de buenas músicas y mucha energía!
