    What else ...

    Volunteers should be aware that it is a farm to learn to plant, contemplate and be more connected with nature .. here, we value the silence in order to appreciate the sounds of birds, crickets and all the animals that live around ... in no time the farm is a place to party, drink alcohol or do other activities not related to organic planting. It is a place with lots of harmony.
