On a little farm in the mountains in Andalucía, close to Málaga, I live with two horses, a dog and a cat in a small cortijo. Since a while there are a few chicken with their rooster joining the team.
Three years ago 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.
- We do worm composting with the horse manure on four different sites, and the chicken are also involved in this task.
Goal is to go fully sustainable with the least possible input from outside and least loss of water and nutrients.
There are first steps for a food forest, some fruit trees already planted and the mandala veggie garden expands, too.

We're starting with a new permaculture project.
We implemented already a worm farm to compost the horse manure.
You will help us to maintain it.
We created the water retention landscape and we will plant trees and bushes to prevent erosion, wind and loss of rain water as well as provide food and natural activity for the horses. A food forest will follow.
We started a small vegetable garden.
