Programa detallado

We live by and apply the permacultural ideology. We have a bamboo house, compost toilets and a river nearby from where we get our water. Half of the land here is a reserve so we can't touch it. Before, the land was occupied with cow farming and so now we are recovering the soil.
On sundays, we receive locals to learn and practice each other's languages.
Come and live our experience!
