Our goal is to rescue the history, crops and traditions of this rural area maintaining a coffee culture of respect and care with the living beings in this mountain. In the future we are planning to develop cultural activities having in mind we both are visual artists. By now we are not in coffee harvest,but we have a lot of oranges. Would you like to join us?

I live in a tropical rainforest along Caribbean coastal Colombia.
I've recently bought a small acreage that I will design and develop into a sustainable model farm using permaculture and local knowledge. It's truly a blank slate with only large trees dotting the hilly landscape. There's 110 meters of beautiful clear water river frontage, think daily dips.
My plan is to develop a timber and food forest, garden, nursery for young plants, land stabilization, rain water harvesting, a botanical paradise, inviting place for the monkeys and birds and eventually a small chocolate facility.
I need help building infrastructure. Immediately, plumbing fir the main house, completion of a bath house and wash station is another priority. Next a water harvesting towers, perimeter barriee. Basic construction experience and knowledge will be useful as would work with cement.
I'm a retired Canadian who enjoys people nature and adventure. I have pets.
Minimum stay one month and hopefully you'll... more inside

We are located just outside the beautiful pueblito of Guatavita, one and a half hours north of Bogota by bus, surrounded by mountains and sacred lakes. It has a cool climate, early morning mist and clear starry nights, and at times we get rain, wind and perfect sunny weather all in the same afternoon. We are just across from Tomine Lake, and the famous Laguna de Guatavita (the volcanic lake which gave birth to the El Dorado legend) is only a two hour hike away.

We grew up in the city, but after travelling for a time, I realized that the campo is where I want to be. We want to help change the relationship between people and the land – we don’t need monocrops, pesticides and toxic fertilizers to live well. We want to encourage more traditional farming systems, based on permaculture and biodynamic principles, and drawing from the long-practiced wisdom of established farming communities like this one. I am also involved with a bunch of social projects, including University courses, ... more inside
