  • Description


    We are a free learning space, with many people of different ages who come here to play, study, build, meet us... We have a farm of approximately one hectare. On the farm we have the main house, which we use as a "headquarters", a yurt, which we will use as a bedroom. In addition to 5 chickens and two dogs.

    We are a group of young people with many tasks and projects in mind, so we thought it would be a great idea to ask for help from workaweyers to come and meet us and learn with us.
