  • Descrição


    We are birthing a natural living project on the mountains of Cocorna, Antioquia Colombia. Our Main focus now is the renovation of an old house using mainly materials from the land. We started a bit over a year ago. We love natural building. With both previous experience and every day we are learning ourselves while sculpting this first nest with mud- adobe, cob, straw, wood and Bamboo applying different natural building technics. In the same time we are starting gardens close to the house and planning a foodforest. We are inspired by perma culture ( i lived in a perma culture school- community in Thailand for 1,5 year) and ancient traditional living. ( My partner is a farmer by his roots) We garden and aim to have a holistic closed circle farm. We like to develop some products of herbs, foods and flowers, like soaps wine thee's, oils tinctures etc. next to our own veggie and Fruit consumption. Our coffee we hand pick, proces and drink. The property is a 30 minutes walk from the last road following an ancestral trail. Living in nature with a beautifull vieuw over the mountains and the village where many water flows. the water we drinks comes from the water spring On the land. On a free day we like to explore the abundance of natural beauty around. We mostly make everything ourselves including furniture, we are passionate about creating with Nature and from scratch in a puré way. Our baby girl is born here last year. We could use some extra hands with the building and in the gardens. The land is 6 hectáreas. We provide free camping with a possible prívate kitchen in exchange for the help, for food we ask a contribución from 10.000 till 20.000 a day depending on how many meals we share.
