    Description

    Hello everyone! We are Imad and Khalid. We are moroccan brothers passionate about farming and Permaculture.
    I own a great piece of land in the natural surrounding not far from Zagora. I have the dream to turn this piece of land to a wonderful project.

    I wish that many volunteers from all around the world can make this a special and unique place. I wish that one day there will be next to cats, dogs, chicken, sheep and a camel, a lot of fresh fruit and vegetables.

    The volunteers should have a place for an authentic experience, a place to find life lasting friendships. It shall be an environment with a happy atmosphere where people can work together and learn from each other.

    The first steps will be to build and extend the sleeping, relaxing and bathroom facilities for the volunteers. Therefore mainly construction work needs to be done in the start.

    Next to that we will need to do general maintenance works for instance fixing the stall for the animals. There is as well always room to make the area cosy.

    So whether you are a creative mind who likes to help making the project more beautiful by conducting an art project or whether you are a skilled builder or gardener or all together- you are more than welcome to the farm project .

    Also we can make our food , so that we will grow up our Food and we can cook in fire and exchange and taste lot of meals and dishes Moroccain one's or you can cook if you like , you will not pay for our food . you will have free food and accomodation and guiding exploring the city center and old building .

    We will help you with informations about the area . Also if you would like to visit the dunes they are not far from the project and my neighbours have dromadaires! you can have some days off and spend some good nights dawn starts in berber camps .
