    Description

    Our dream to change the city for the tranquility of the countryside and be self-sustaining is beginning to bear fruit. Around a year we have achieved our greenhouse mushroom production; vegetable garden; some fruits; plus a small plantation of lavender and rosemary to make essential oils.
    We eat what we produce, we are happy and we want to share with you this great dream that has motivated many of our workawayers for making their own projects.
    We financed with courses cultivation of edible and medicinal mushrooms and the sale of some of our products in organic fairs.
    We are on the way to be self-sustaining we know that we have to much for doing but one day we will get.
    We invite you to be part of this great project and share in family!

    IF YOU WANT TO STAY AT LEAST 3 MONTHS AND YOU TALK SPANISH WE CAN MAKE A PAYMENT AGREEMENT

    To start up with the vegetable garden we need lots of physical work to build the beds, add compost, mulch, etc.
    You will be asked to give a hand with the maintenance of the green house and laboratory of mushrooms.
    Since, the handling of the mushrooms can be complex, we ask you to stay for one month.

    We can host up to 4 people at a time.
