  • Description


    We are a family with two little girls living in Punta Negra for a year and building our mud house since June ... in December we have moved with half the house working and the other half to be built .. so right now We are a bit finishing a part and also seeing what is still ahead ... we do not have a room for the workawayers but we are inviting those who want to come to know the place or are interested in learning together with us about permaculture to camp on our land and give us a hand with whatever you can .. We have a quiet lifestyle following the rhythm of the girls and enjoying the construction process ..

    Somos una familia con dos niñas pequeñas viviendo en punta negra hace un año y construyendo nuestra casa de barro desde junio... en diciembre nos hemos mudado con la mitad de la casa funcionando y la otra mitad por construir.. así que en este momento estamos un poco terminando una parte y viendo también lo que falta para delante.. no tenemos una habitación para los workawayers pero estamos invitando a quienes quieran venir a conocer el lugar o estén interesados en aprender junto con nosotros de permacultura a acampar en nuestro terreno y darnos una mano con lo que se pueda..
    Tenemos un estilo de vida tranquilo siguiendo el ritmo de las niñas y disfrutando el proceso de la construcción..
