Program Details

We live in a simple place for everyone to focus on the true essence that really matters in life.

We often welcome people who are tired of the standard and conventional way of life and plunge into a fresh, refreshing, nonjudgmental environment.

You will have organic and nutritious meals, prepared with great affection by other residents here or even you can help.

You will be appointed a buddy who will guide you throughout the programme. This buddy will be there for the you from the first day through to the last. There are scheduled daily chats and you can contact him/her 24-7. Once you is more comfortable in programme, these chats will reduce, as the goal is recovery and independence.

You will have the opportunity to learn about agroforestry, permaculture and bioconstruction.

There are no deadlines. We only expect people to be motivated and do their best.
