    We built this project with lots of effort and much caring of the nature surrounding us. We work together in a collaborative way between each other and we have lots of fun, either working or in leisure time. We work hard and very focused, we have lots of things to do every day and we take our job seriously. We recieved lots of volunteers these years and we are really happy to connect with so much different people. Our idea is that every person that passes through here takes with him a huge package of experiences learnt here.
