Where you'll be

Finka Alexandria, the permaculture projekt in La Gomera, has two fincas: In chipude and Vallehermoso. Chipude is located in the south, Vallehermoso in the North of the Island. The Climate, the plants, the views and the Jobs to do: Those two fincas are very diferent. But you will in both of them be able to re-connect with nature and feel yourself.

This was really great! We first got a tour and learned about different plant species. We also learned about the sheer amount of invasive species present on the island. A little bit disheartening, but really important to have that knowledge. Then we had some fresh lemon grass tea, and helped gardening, building a compost pile. We then got fresh herbs and vegetables from the garden, which we cooked at the Airbnb at the end of the day. Delicious! Truly a great immersive experience. Would've loved to stay longer to learn more about sustainable gardening.

Die Zeit mit Zdenka war ganz erfüllend und wir wurden reich beschenkt mit Wissen, Herzenswärme, Leichtigkeit und Nähe. Jedem, der dem Herzen La Gomeras näher kommen möchte, empfehlen wir dieses Erlebnis. Wenn wir wieder auf die Insel kommen, werden wir das wiederholen. Danke!!!

Ich kann diese Veranstaltung nur empfehlen. Ich habe so viel über die Pflanzen der Insel und das Permakulturprojekt erfahren und dazu einen wundervollen Platz mit herzlichen Menschen kennenlernen dürfen. Ich habe ein tolles Curry aus dem Gartengemüse mitessen dürfen und Kräuter und Samen mitbekommen. Zdenka und Frieda haben sehr interessant uns offen erzählt. Dort fühlt man sich einfach wohl!

This was a great experience. We learned a lot about the local and introduced plants. It's clear that Zdenka and the others at the Finca are passionate about their project and we immediately felt at ease and free to talk about anything. Doing a bit of work was also nice and taking home some nice produce straight from the ground that we dug up was a great touch and we look forward to cooking with what we got. I would definitely recommend this to anyone with an interest in gardening, especially using sustainabile methods, or just anyone wanting an experience that isn't the 'typical' tourist encounter. It was a lovely edition to a great trip.
