    Description

    Hello and welcome everyone.
    Our place is a wise 70 years old olive grove.
    We just moved last year and we are working to create Permaculture farm..
    We try to live a simple life, respecting and cooperating with nature, and neighbours to pursue the goal of a healthier humanity on Earth.

    Because it is a young project there is plenty to do and we need people willing to help.
    We have done a permaculture design that we are on process to implementing (swales, ponds, reforesting, etc)
    We already have the organic veggie garden planted, the chicken shed built (wood and cob), the compost area done and we are working on building outside compost toilets.
    We also grow edible mushrooms with our own recycled logs and hopefully this year we will have our first crop.
    The options of work are enormous: from the basics structural to the delicate creative decorations.
    We appreciate everyone’s skills and advice.
    We are happy to help and learn from each other.

    My name is Gustavo and at the moment I live by my self in a cob recycled and concrete house. Most of time there are friends or other volunteers staying so it is a dynamic and friendly environment.
    There is also Blaky the horse.
    There is a room into the house to share between volunteers and plenty of space to camp under old shady trees.
    Basics facilities like hot shower, electricity, drinkable water from well and compost toilet are available.
