Our project has various objectives: self sustainability, organic agriculture, animal shelter, horse guided empowerment, a retreat center and a production of native herbal products.

During the day the sun can be very strong but once the it goes down it gets very cold! We need help from people with discipline, willing to work and with a sense of responsibility.
Auto-sustainability & organic agriculture
Being already independent on water and electricity, we aspire to be as much as posible independent on food by the next 5 years. We have a piece of land where we can cultivate potatoes and veggies from the region and oats and alfalfa for the animals. We are experimenting and researching to cultivate organic.
We currently take care of eleven horses, two Alpacas, four sheeps, chicken, rabbits, a cat and 3 dogs. With our shelter we want to provide a safe space for our animals, a place where they can live as natural as possible. We are an animal shelter; we do not ride our horses. We mainly do ground work and would like to prepare our horses to be able to work with children and help in therapy and coaching.
We are creating a special space for horse guided empowerment, familiy constelation with horses, meditation, yoga and traditional Aymara ceremonies and earth offerings.
