Alicia is Argentinian, Max is french. We met in a Natural Building workshop in Chile. We are looking for a simple and healthy life.
We teach Permaculture Design Courses (PDC) and organize Natural Building Workshop.
We just finished our last project, a small ecological Pilgrim's hostel on the Camino de Santiago that we restored during 6 years, from scratch to a beautiful small house, naturally built (see picture). A lot a volunteers from all over the world came to help and learn.
Now we're starting a bigger project, a Permaculture and Natural Building center in Asturias, to experiment and share everything about Autonomy and Resilience (food, Energy, Building, Water systems, etc).
We just found an old beautiful farm that we have to restore and transform, using Permaculture Design and principles, and Natural materials.
Help with Eco Projects
DIY and building projects
We are passionate about life, permaculture, gardening, natural building, vegetarian cooking, home made cosmetics, travels, light backpacking, St James way, and everything that is closed to a healthy, simple life
If you want to learn about "where and how to start a new permaculture project" that's the place and the moment.
From June 21 to July 16, for 4 weeks we're gonna build the foundation of this new Permaculture center.
Right now everything has to be done, from dry composting toilet to showers, kitchen, dorm to receive volunteers. We're gonna explore electricity, water systems, natural building technics (wood, clay, lime, straw, etc...).
We're working hard, here is a place to learn.
That's how Alicia and I have learnt and developed skills : participating in workshop, for months.
If you think holidays, it's not the place for you, if you think opportunity, you'll learn the basics to be able in the future to restore or build a place for yourself!
If you've heard about climate change, collapse or just because you want to build and develop autonomy, that's the place.
We have a great experience in natural building and we're passionate about sharing and teaching.
Right now it's gonna be very simple : Camping or dorm in an old barn. Hot shower cabin, dry composting toilet (efficient and non-smelly ones), etc...
We provide vegetarian food from Monday to Friday (Alicia is a great Vegetarian cook!). During weekends you're welcome to stay at the place if you want but you'll be responsible for your food (shopping and cooking)
We live in a small village surrounded by hills and nature, in the heart of Asturias, an amazing undiscovered region. You'll probably fall in love with it! We are situated 20 min from the coast.
