The Garden Of Joy

We want to support our local farmers and their traditional lifestyle, and hope to form an ecological community with our neighbours.

The Ibecenco people living in these rural areas are an extremely dignified people; their lives edging gently forwards in a time-honoured fashion with so many treasured techniques to share. 

Local farmers have been farming here for generations and still farm by hand. The mountainous interior of the island is a quilt of dense pine forest and olive and almond groves.

Farmers use ancient terracing to cultivate their crops and irrigation techniques introduced by the Arabs over 1,000 years ago.
