We will create a garden for people, plants and animals. It will be like the Garden of Epicurus, an example of what can grow in a free space between free people.

The process of transforming an agricultural wasteland into a blossoming garden, is for itself a work of art. One of the first wwoofers who joined the project was Llya Kotelnikow from Russia. He helped a lot to transport ceramics for some trencadis workshops to the land.
