    Description

    Welcome to our little slice of paradise! We are a vibrant and growing family fortunate enough to call the Diamante Valley our home. Nestled within a breathtaking 100-acre cloud forest, our lives are a daily adventure amidst the misty canopies and lush greenery that surround us.

    Our journey began with a dream to create a sustainable lifestyle that’s in harmony with nature. Today, we’re proud to say that we’re living that dream, cultivating the land, and learning from the forest. We believe in the power of community and the magic that unfolds when people come together to share, learn, and grow.

    As stewards of this land, we’re passionate about permaculture, organic farming, and conservation. We’re constantly exploring innovative ways to nurture our environment while providing a nurturing space for our children to flourish.

    We invite you to join our family, whether it’s for a short stay or a longer collaboration. Here, you’ll find more than just a place to work; you’ll find a place to connect, create, and be part of something bigger. Together, let’s make every day an opportunity to learn and celebrate the beauty of life in the cloud forest.
