    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Our area is beautifully rural with traditional local agriculture still in action. Our neighbour keeps a herd of goats and you'll sometimes see horse drawn buggies on the roads. We try and learn from local growing methods. There are lots of local Festa village celebrations. We are off-grid so it's an opportunity to experience this way of life.
