This year's contributors

  • Thanks to Rick from the US who is always helping me with geek stuff to set up the blog
  • Thanks to Brian from the UK who not only offered a substantial amount but also a used smartphone. I will now be able to post on instagram and shoot videos for youtube and facebook about what we are doing here
  • Thanks to Ruth from Belgium. I had not cut my hair since i moved here 7 years ago so it had reached my butt crack. With New Year i decided it was time to change that. I grabbed a pair of scissors and make a carnage. As the law of attraction would have it, 4 days later came Ruth, a professional hairdresser who repaired the best she could the mess i had made, Thanks also for her financial contribution
  • Thanks to Hadrien from France who made a financial contribution
  • Thanks to Janka and Andrea from Slovakia who made a financial contribution and helped with their time and energy as well
  • Thanks to G. from the US who gets my mail so i don’t have to pay for a P.O Box

Help Finalize the project

Building a yoga platform

The structure is already in place but needs some work. The bottom part built in bricks is the area where farmers gather the collected coffee to be processed. The top floor needs to be reinforced as well as building a new roof structure and floors. The final product will give an open air platform with spectacular views of the valley below and surrounding banana farms

Rain water collection

a bicycle washing machine, a poulie system to get the fresh spring water into the kitchen, a beer can solar panel for the showers

Natural hot tub

Heated with wood fire

Chicken co op

Build an enclosure and housing for chickens so we can get fresh organic eggs

Growing a food forest

To grow all the fruits and vegetables we will need, aromatic herbs, herbs for the spa, soap and lotions. Fruits growing everywhere. There are already about 100 cacao trees on the land. Grow spices and aloe vera plants

Cooking Equipment

rocket mass/pizza oven, kitchen extension, ustensils, build a machine to process sugar cane, a machine to extract cacao oil and make cacao butter, a butter churn, underground cellar

Sweat lodge-Spa cabana

A wood fired sweat lodge. The spa cabana is already up but needs some work as well as its surroundings. We can then have massages and facial treatments with lotions made with our own herbs growing on the land

Goats

Get a couple of goats so we can make our own goat cheese
