This is the eco-living arrangement and rural lifestyle of Olmec and Melisa.
Our 2 hectare lifestyle forest garden is a haven of diversity. We use permaculture principals and thinking to shape and care for the land, growing a wide range of crops and creating habitat for animals including pigs, chickens and ducks. We make use of alternative energy systems and attempt to create a low impact way of life.
Motivated by the converging problems of environmental degradation, over population, peak oil and climate change, we develop resilient living systems with a focus on biological environmental restoration, food production and living in balance with nature.
