  • Description

    We are Paola and Andreas. We are a couple. Together we are starting up a permaculture/art based operation (maybe even a community) in Asturias (Northern Spain) During the harsh months of winter we flee from the incessant rain and cold to learn from others. Check out what we are doing here:

    Paola is an established artist and poet. Teacher of Art. Her speciality is murals, you can admire some of her works in a cathedral and in two metro stations in Madrid. She is also an avid gardener, excelent vegan cook, radiestesist, orgonite ,good company and energetic healer. She loves children and has been teaching art to them for a large part of her life. Paola can also use powertools like drills compressors saws etc.

    Andreas can build or fix just about anything, do wet and dry stonework, wood construction, floors, roofs, tiny houses, brickwork, concrete and so on. Working with natural and upcycled materials has become kind of a hobby for him. Andreas also knows something about permaculture, food forrests, the propagation of plants and growing mushrooms.

    We are both fit and young at heart. We speak Spanish and/or English. Paola is a vegan, so we eat vegan. If you would like we will cook our vegan specialities for you.
