We have bought the farm and we have moved!

Posted by Rene Nijstad almost 6 years ago

We're excited to start our own permaculture farm in rural Colombia, and we hope to become another part of the PRI master plan sites around the world!

We have bought the farm we selected after visiting numerous places around here. This one stuck out, it has a great topography for this area, with steep mountain slopes and semi flat areas, it has numerous options to capture water, it has been neglected for years so we can show the 'before and after' pictures, it has 10 hectares of land, it is properly accessible, and most of all it was affordable!

 

I've added 2 pictures below for an impression. In the upcoming weeks we'll map out the entire farm and document it's current state. After that we'll make a rough design for the property and get started on what will be years of work to make it a little paradise!
