Permaculture vegan project – Greetings, travellers! This is an old canary Finca over Tijarafe on the cosy island of La Palma, From our Area, we have a fantastic view over Tijarafe and the Atlantic Ocean. Our way of living is to live close to nature, reduce our eco-footprint, low energy consumption and as less intervention in the environment as needed. We want to show an alternative, a sustainable lifestyle based on permaculture (PDC at Autarca Matricultura at La Palma) natural farming and eco-building. We are vegan.

What’s the mission of your community?
Our main project is to reconstruct old Finca, of which history has begun more than 200 years ago, and lift it to a sustainable modern biodynamic Farm, by applying principles from permaculture, food forests, oasis gardening and eco-building.
We try to understand what and why the people living here do. This Finca was now abandoned for 40 Years, the last time one lived here, was in a time there was no road. The Area is spread over 820 – 910 M Altitude. You can not expect any flat and easy way.. between two levels there are many times just some rocks you can use as stairs.
In this environment we do reconstruction jobs, mostly building terrace walls from rocks.. working for the soil by cleaning, preparing mulch material, making charcoal and compost.. and all the tasks a garden needs.
