We invite people from across the globe to join us and experience our simplistic lifestyle in a peaceful setting disconnected from the hectic world. At the farm we follow the permaculture principles and you can learn about and practice bioconstruction (natural building), agroforestry (syntrophic farming) and renewable energy.
