Helpers of the world join us in the beautiful mountains of Spain!


The Exchange

We have made a Logical farm up in the mountains of extremadura inside the forest. Our purpose is to recover and expand the fertility of the land using traditional ways of working with animals, plants and constructions, having the biggest respect with the nature and leaving behind us a future more fertil and seeded than consumed.
