    Description

    Hello...my name is Lorenzo, I am 43 years old, I am in the center of Cantabria. My project is to create a mini ecological farm, as sustainable as possible, seeking self-sufficiency in all aspects...I consider myself a dynamic, positive person, with various concerns. I have always been linked to this way of life, so I have a lot of experience in bioconstruction, gardening, animals, permaculture... It is a piece of land of almost one hectare, located at the foot of the mountain, bordering to the east with the Saja Besaya Natural Park , in the Iguña Valley. Currently I am giving priority to adapting the land and creating infrastructure, earthworks, fencing, improving the chicken coop, shed, etc... and of course taking care of the dogs, cats and chickens. All people with a positive attitude and a desire to share are welcome. For me the beauty of this is to exchange experiences, wisdom, experiences, meals, work... For the lodging of the volunteers there is a small cabin, with the right amenities, there is no electricity or running water, there is a solar panel to have light , charge the cell phone and thus, the water is collected from the rain. In summer you can set up a nice camp outside, in case a group or something wants to come. If you have any questions, I'm here for whatever...

    Hola...me llamo Lorenzo, tengo 43 años, estoy en el centro de Cantabria. Mi proyecto es crear una mini granja ecológica, lo más sostenible posible, buscando la autosuficiencia en todos los aspectos...me considero una persona dinámica, positiva, de inquietudes varias. Siempre he estado ligado a esta forma de vida, asique tengo bastante experiencia en bioconstrucion, huerta, animales, permacultura...

    Es un terreno de casi una hectárea, situada en la falda de la montaña, lindando al este con el Parque Natural Saja Besaya, en el Valle de Iguña.

    Actualmente estoy dando prioridad a adecuar el terreno y crear infraestructuras, movimientos de tierra, vallados, mejora del gallinero, cobertizo, etc...y por supuesto cuidar a los perros, gatos y gallinas.

    Son bienvenidas todas las personas con actitud positiva, con ganas compartir. Para mí lo bonito de esto es intercambiar, experiencias, sabiduría, vivencias, comidas trabajo...
    Para el hospedaje de los voluntarios hay una pequeña cabaña, con las comodidades justas, no hay luz ni agua corriente, hay una placa solar para tener luz, cargar el móvil y así, el agua se recoge de la lluvia. En verano se puede montar un campamento bonito fuera, por sí quiere venir algún grupo o así.

    Sí tenéis alguna duda, aquí estoy para lo que sea...
