    As a volunteer at our small project we offer you a great opportunity to learn about many different skills . We work hard to build from only locally available materials, reduce waste production, compost all human and other organic waste, and to reduce erosion by changing the land from a cattle farm to a vegetable and fruit farm.
    Our goal on the farm is to grow as much as we can in order to feed ourselves and our visitors, at the same time we want to be an example as a sustainable farm for all of those who visit our place thinking in having their own farm in the future or just have the experience.
    This experience is meant for those who are interested in learning about living in a sustainable life using eco- friendly techniques and also learning about natural building while working hands on as a volunteer. We take our work very seriously and work hard to provide a quality experience for everyone, so we expect the same of our volunteers here .
    Volunteer will work 4 hours per day and we will provided all the instructions you need for the work you will be doing along with the answering of any questions you may have about the projects we are working on.
    Currently we are working on several projects ,so there is always plenty to do!
    Some of our current projects include: planting seeds and fruit trees, developing and maintaining composting systems, reworking and softening soil (the land was formerly used for cattle grazing and therefore is very compact), and the never ending job of weeding and garden maintenance! Also we have always building projects going on . We don't ask any previuos experience , the only thing ask is people to be open to help in different areas of the farm and we are always thinking of new things to do! We are open to hear and value your ideas for making this place better, for us is very important to create a family environmental where everybody feels this place as a new home.
