    Description

    Hello Everyone !


    Things change a lot with Corona but we are here and there are a lot of things to do!!

    We love to host open minded travelers, willing to contribute to keeping this piece of land heavenly.
    Artists, musicians, nomads, writers, explorers, craftsmen, digital nomads, athletes, chefs, gardeners, artisans, and just about everyone with a peaceful and warm spirit are VERY WELCOME !

    We love to share our place, what we do, like, and our journey with like minded people :)

    Help us build a little garden of eden where each and everyone of us get to sweat and be rewarded for (:

    Amongst other projects, we are working in :

    Planting a forest, and many many fruits and vegetables ;)

    Arrange an ecologically sustainable space for all of us to share, enjoy, and keep healthy

    Building a couple greenhouses to host our many many many future baby plants !

    Installing and aquaponics system to grow vegetables and fish

    Helping the nearby villages and farm get rid of plastic debris and general plastic waste (household, agricultural equipment, etc)

    And last but not least : Keep our little garden healthy for you are what you eat, and we aspire to grow fruits and vegetables to achieve complete autonomy and sustainability, and of course, be able to share with everyone :)

    Keeping a little farm healthy is no joke, and we are really short handed. The coronavirus made people able to travel less and less, and we are overwhelmed with the amount of work there is here, but step by step, we are doing it and it feels amazing !!


    Also....

    Things move a lot around here, so if you happen to come at a very busy moment, or when (almost) nobody is home...
    Well, we travel a lot around the country, and if it fits in both our schedules, why not explore other parts of the country together? There is always someone to help, and a lot of interesting things to do on the road ! We are active in chefchaouen, agadir, rabat, meknes, fes, casablanca, tangier, marrakech... and of course the surrounding areas :) !

    Feel free to ask us about travel tips as well, you won't regret it (:

    OLIVE PICKERS WANTED !!! LET'S PRESS THAT OIL !!! YES YES YES !!!

    So the main attraction, I would say, for this season, is the olive picking....

    We love our olive trees very much, we always took care of them and the bond we have is unbreakable :)

    This year we think we can make around 450liters of olive oil for all to enjoy, and the process of picking/pressing/TASTING and finally seeing all the olive oil we made is just amazing.

    So you if you are motivated, love olive oil, want to pick olives, or are just willing to lend a hand, because you want to, please contact us !! :) Your help is very much appreciated !!

    We expect to start picking around the end of December, so if you happen to come around/want to come around, hit us up !!!

    And now, some other things we do, day after day, slowly but surely.... :


    From october to mid/end of december, we are planting trees, receiving donations and equipment, (handling/unloading merchandise), arranging a camping space, and finally, harvesting OLIVES !!!! :)

    This is the headline, but in between these tasks, there is always maintenance work (again... gardening ! ), keeping the space healthy, and helping create something new maybe? (all types of creative and handy works are welcome :)

    We are looking for people to help us with :

    - Digging holes for 300trees, as well as plant them (this one is a surprise for the tree lovers ! )

    - Landscaping design for our future nursery greenhouse and expanding the vegetable garden

    - Weeding, cleaning the ground (tamping) and arranging a camping space (for a few tents, a firepit and main area)

    - Building a greenhouse (most of the equipment should be arriving progressively between these dates)

    -Unloading a couple trucks worth of equipment for the project (wood, wire, fencing, mesh netting, etc..)

    - Building and lining a small pond for aquaculture (with pallet wood, and tarp)

    This, along with the day to day tasks, is the work you might encounter if you come between october and the end of december.

    I will try to update as much as I can if there are any additions, or predictions for the next months, and of course.... Gardeners are always much appreciated :) every day !

    If you have a specific skill and would like to help us benefit from it, or just share it with us, again, do not hesitate to contact us!

    And if you have a question about what exactly is expected from someone on a specific task, well let's talk !

  • Hébergement

    Hébergement

    You can sleep in :


    One room on top of the blue house,
    Two rooms in the blue house, for up to three people,
    3 comfortable hammocks (if you like it.. ;)
    A space for your tent ! (and some tents, as well ... )
    An empty greenhouse !! (keeps you warm in a hammock)

    And some more space for the tents :)

    When it's summertime, everyone prefers sleeping outside, and when it's cold, fire keeps us warm.

    With a good spirit, you can only feel comfortable here :)

    One shared bathroom with a shower and water heated by fire,
    Two dry, eco bathrooms in the field,
    We hang out near the blue house, where we eat, chill out, and just live

    There is a nice swimming pool that is hard to keep clean, and very very good in the summer.... (so if you're coming right before the summertime, you know there's some swimming pool cleaning :D )
    We hang out around it and chill out there too ...

    The place is good if you like to walk and want to have some alone time :)

    Our small garden has fruits (pears, apricots, plums, figs, pomegranates, oranges, and some other surprises :)
    We are scaping a new (very little) vegetable garden as well as arranging the space with a hammock, stone oven, and other fun stuff.
    A few aromatic plants...
    Cactuses

    And good energy !

  • Autres infos...

    Autres infos...

    We are a 10min drive away from a little village where there is not much happening, and the cities of Fes and Meknes are about 40-45mn ride away.
    We can visit the region together if you like to get up early, and depending on the schedules, we can also visit the cities of fes and chefchaouen where we will gladly host you as part of the experience :)

    Other than that... You can ask us about anything, and you'll find out !! ;)

    Possibilité d’accueillir les digital nomads

    We can host digital nomads with basic needs in terms of internet access. Sometimes and in some places it works better than in other places, but the connection is unstable. We do not have it installed ourselves, usually people have a hotspot or 4g connected mobile device. We are working on setting up a little office space with a good printer, papers, and the equipment that comes with it, so that you can have the minimum, but if your work requires you to be online most of the time, then it will be hard for you. If you are willing to come despite the poor internet setting, please let us know so that we can talk about all the options you have here in morocco (before buying a sim card, etc. We can recommend, based to whether you will be staying most of the time in a city or a specific rural area, what plans and what sim cards work best for you in terms of price/efficiency. ) Do not hesitate to ask us about anything else !! :)

    Possibilité d'accueillir les animaux
