  • Description


    I am the pioneer of an Eco Village under construction. With me there is a group of people who want to help the project of sustainable living to develop and so on the farm is like being in an extended family. At this moment everything is evolving! The building is an industry building made out of bricks, it is a very beautiful big and spacious. There is also a 6.000 square meters of woods on the river Stella, where we bathe in the summer. Permaculture is practiced on a small vegetable garden and food forest.
