Hi, we are Juan and Paz and our daughter Clara. Juan is a shepherd And Paz is already over 15 years working with natural plants , flowers, perfums and plant healing. 
We habe made a Bio farm up in the mountains of extremadura. Our purpose is to keep and recover the fertility of the land using traditional ways of working with animals, plants and construction, not only habing respect with the nature, but also leaving behind us a future more fertil and seeded than consumed.
At the moment we have a donkey, sheeps, goats, chickens. We began on March 2012 as this complete valley was 50 years abandoned. Thanks to the help of volunteers we habe naturaly cleaned and fertilized most of this 15 ha. valley where too little rivers born with pure water. Now the chesnuts trees and oaks forest, the vegetable garden, the fruits trees and our medicinal plants garden grow more happly, very active, and give us everytime more fruits And health.
We bring the goats and the sheeps to the cliffs everyday cleaning and recovering the old ways that nobody used for a long time, bringing us back home the pure milk to produce our products....

We are completing a bio cycle with water, plants and animals. We also work professionaly with medicinal plants which we grow in our land making our own healthy products. 
We produce our own electricity with sun, wind and water. We habe almost zero rubish caming out of our farm. We like to reuse and recycle almost everything.
The riivers are borned in the land so all water is much pure and good for drinking. We also provide us health through the vegetable garden and sprouting natural seeds.
The place is like a little paradise!! Respect for the earth is our fundament

We like to work with people, teach, learn showing and explaining everything what we do. So we all learn from each other and the work has a meaning, samething to be enjoyed.

So we hope we meet soon.
Best wishes and thanks to all of you helpers of the world

*we accept volunteers minimum one month to be able to adapt to the present works and to know and learn minimum well the activities we develop here.

Saludos, ànimos y fuerza
