    Description

    We are a couple (Nacho and Mile) and we got the opportunity of our lives! And we are going to need your help! A nice lady (Maria Clara) offered us to build in her land (by the beautiful Rocha lagoon) a sustainable project thats is going to have, vegetables production, beekeeping, dary, fauna and flora reserve and accommodation and food (with our own ingredients) for tourist.
    We are working in restructure an old building, planting, building a green house, milking and doing dairy products, fencing to keep parts isolated. We are also thinking about (and working on) becoming independent on all sorts of energy.
    During our free time we enjoy this beautiful place, helping each other, enjoying and respecting nature, playing football, fishing, singing and playing instruments, talking with the chickens, picking up mushrooms, birdwatching, cooking....if you think you can help us, you have a proactive attitude and you love nature and you want to learn of teach something come to work with us
