We are a young family living in Panama for the past 5 years. Laura (36), Luca (11), Mia (8) and myself Emy (36), we also have one cat, two dogs, and few chickens.

Our vision for the future is to design and develop a Permaculture food forest and self-sustainable homestead while helping and teaching visitors valuable skills they can apply to their own lives.

Additionally, we are building a small eco-lodge, with small huts, cabins and campsites.

We are located on the virgin island of Solarte, surrounded by untouched rainforest and right on the Caribbean sea. Volunteers can explore the amazing jungle trails, take a dip in the sea right off our dock, take the kayak to the nearby reef, go fishing, snorkeling or explore the amazing jungle, and make new friends during to visit this magical island.

We are located only 5 minutes by boat from the famous Red Frog Beach; or 40 minutes by kayak.
