Chestnut Blueberry Permaculture Haven

Chestnut trees are amazing. They provide a tasty and nutritious food that is much like a grain, being low in fat. Unlike so many big ag crops that deplete the soil and require a large carbon input, chestnut trees build up soil, don't require tilling, and provide ecosystems for animals, fungi, and other plants. They suck up CO2 from the air. Their byproduct is firewood--renewable energy. On our farm and at a nearby monastery, we take data on thousands of trees with genetics from all over the world and crossbreed them to be better and better. We firmly believe that we are doing something wonderful for the world and humanity, and are in an exciting time when we're learning how to make it work and how to live sustainably. We are also constantly doing other projects for fun and sustenance.

I live on the farm with my 3 boys. Louis is 7 and Ben and Roger are 4 year-old identical twins. They love to help. We have 2 awesome dogs that roam free. My life's goal is to make the universe a better place, and I think that our approach to farming and growing chestnut trees is a great way to do it. We're trying to be ever more self-sufficient and off-grid, producing what we need. I love to teach and learn, and I'm happy to host others and hopefully send them away with skills, knowledge, and thoughts that they can use to make the universe a better place too, and also gain from their presence. We are very grateful and honored that volunteers want to come here, and treat them with respect and gratitude.

This has truly been a wonderful experience. I happy to have met this beautiful family. Martín and Denny are excellent hosts. The children are very calm boys. I had the opportunity to learn everything. Martín is an excellent leader and gives you the confidence to dare to use all the machines and that has been a wonderful experience. It has been worth all the learning that I take away from here. Denny is a girl with a smile always. The work is easy and the schedule is very flexible.

I had a great week here! I came here mainly for a learning experience and I got just that. Everyone worked together to get various tasks done! This was my first team volunteer experience and I love it! Getting to know people and their story’s was such a cool experience. You learn to live a more sustainable, waste free and nature filled lifestyle! I wasn’t here during blueberry and chestnut season but the blueberry’s I had were delicious!

My first worldpackers trip was like slicing into a freshly cut watermelon and seeing that it is perfectly to your liking. I thought Martin and Denny were funny and bright. My favorite part of the harvest was climbing up in the trees and trying to shake every chestnut down. Thank you for providing a space for me to tend my soul's garden and test my strength!

I was in the farm during spring before all the seasons started and when you prepare everything for that and I loved the place, now I came back during blueberry and chestnut season and it was amazing, you can learn many things about these plants, it was also the first time I met and ate chestnuts. This place is like a home far from home for me and I really appreciate the opportunity of coming back and help. I reccommend this place to all the people that love nature and life away from the cities. Thank you for evrything and for give me one of the best experiences of my life.
