  • Description

    Description

    We have a small organic farm in Dominica, plus we're developing the property. The farm is on 6 acres, a third or more just forest up a mountain. We have a small river but it flows all year. We do have electricity, running water but no internet since hurricane Maria in 2017. The island is still recovering. . We live in a really quiet area and we are pretty far from Cities. Closest village, public transportation and internet is a 2 kilometer hike.

Also we're building paths, tiny greenhouses or other ways to grow food. We propagate fruit trees and tropical flowers.We have quite a few animals to take care of like pigs, chickens, dogs, cats. We build creative furniture from local timber.
