  • Description


    On a little farm in the mountains in Andalucía, close to Málaga, I live with two horses and a cat in a small cortijo. Recently we started to convert the site into a permaculture farm. Now we're in the designing process but started already with some small changes and experiments.

    -The volunteers room is almost done. The last little details could be done by yourself!
    - We just started to do worm composting with the horse manure.
    Goal is to go fully sustainable with the least possible input from outside and least loss of water and nutrients.

    We implemented already a worm farm to compost the horse manure.
    You will help us to maintain it.
    Soon we start with the earthworks to create the water retention landscape and we will plant the food forest.
    We will start a small vegetable garden.
    Actually we're designing the site and preparing the volunteers room with a dry toilet.
