  • Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The experience will be rich in knowledge on how to prepare various types of compost and on how to manage a site in permaculture in its first years of life, obtaining profit from our work to finance the project.
    Our goal is to become an educational farm in the next three years, where, in collaboration with the schools, we will sensitize the new generations to a style of agriculture, pasture and regenerative and eco-sustainable life.

  • Help


    We need volunteers of good will to speed up the construction of the site (through the construction of small wooden structures) and for help in the management of composting, grazing, pasturing and cultivation.
