We live on 7 hectars of lush Galician paradise, based upon self-sufficiency and permaculture, observing nature and workind with her. The eco farm is situated in the heart of the Ribeira Sacra, beautiful wine area in the northwest of Spain, great for hiking in the valleys, excursions to Lugo or Santiago.

We eat from our garden and have a small eco-jam and juice business. We have two donkeys, chickens and amazing cats, a huge garden and vineyards. We spend our workdays based on community living, mutual respect and no hierarchy. Depending on who is here, we do yoga in the mornings, work the gardens during the day and play music at night. 

Come join us! Share with us and we will share with you! Life is about having fun, fun working together, making this paradise self-sufficient!
