Our permaculture center is in its initial stage, so we are requesting lots of helping hands. It is a house of 100 years old, that we are rehabilitating, with a land of 2000 m² with fruit trees.
We have now received some volunteers who have helped us build raised beds, build a chicken coop, collect fruit, plant trees, weed, general cleaning, build a composter and make preserves / jams from the fruits of our trees. We have many activities still pending for volunteers such as painting our walls using lime and nopal, building an adobe oven, building 2 dry toilets, enabling a room for volunteers, building rooms with superadobe, making a mosaic with ceramic dishes, building a solar dehydrator, flattened with cob, make a hutch, continue expanding and taking care of our orchard.
