Summary information

A great 2 month opportunity to learn practical permaculture design and gardening in the best way we know, by getting your hands dirty!

Venue information

Suryalila is a beautiful old renovated olive farm consisting of eight houses that form the cortijo, on 45 acres of land and is still a working olive farm with 350 olive trees.

Suryalila is nestled serenely in a large open valley in the foothills of the Sierra de Grazelema. This majestic mountain range can be seen looming large on the horizon behind Suryalila. A striking part of the natural beauty of the property is the breathtaking vista of rolling hills, fields of sunflowers, and lakes.
