The Experience

We need Cats with gardening and permaculture knowledge and experience to create a green masterpiece! Our garden has the potential for a larger-scale permaculture system to be in place, as well as a greenhouse. The farm has a lot of natural growth that needs to be tamed and shaped. We also need your help to keep the Cats cool by working alongside a builder to create a grape vine pergola (see photo for our inspiration).

How do I talk about this experience? Words can't describe everything that I lived and experienced in The Catfarm. For me, a hole new and surprising way of seeing life, with this sense of community that changes our relationship with nature and the world around us. Also a lot of learning about different cultures... It's really gratifying feeling noticing that after passed through some incredible (and tough, sometimes) situations we grow a lot and in the end we have made connections with really special people for the whole life. Thanks for everybody that made this travell so amazing.

Great opportunity to be with like minded people who want to explore Eco living and sustainability. I had a nice opportunity to experiment with perma culture and to create compost (activating the thermophile bacteria) using the humanure from the Eco toilet. It was one of the best experiences I've had in a long time, even if working outdoors in 40c heat was a challenge for me. Friends for life made.

That was an amazing experience, I spent 3months there, and I did a lot of things that I'll not imagine before. The people that I met were so nice, interesting, full of love, real adventurers running after happiness and discovery! The projects of the Catfarm are so great, the tipy, the 404 air bnb... everything. I was feeling at home. And of course, I'll come back! The Catfarm is an incredible lovely place where you can learn some much things.... And enjoying all together some chill' and positive moments, like around a campfire hahah! :)I wish all the best to the Catfarm! Meooooow :)xx

I had an amazing experience at The Cat Farm. Ulysses was very kind and taught me many skills. The other volunteers were fantastic always having a laugh or good conversation. I felt welcome and safe at the cat farm. I can only say good things about it.
Thank you so much.
I'll be back (hopefully)

dear cats, I know it was a few days, but as Dani said, short but intense, after 10 days I'm going on a trip to London, and I have a feeling that I'm going to miss this place, this incredible landscape that I'll have to go back to to photograph , unfortunately I was able to only participate in two projects, I would like to be part of all of them, even those who are only in imagination. I wish the best for Ruth, Chris, Manu and all the others that are staying, I hope to meet you soon and have good new stories to share.
