This summer, we stayed at the Foundry with up to twelve people; the space handled that number without problems. It will be permanently inhabited throughout the winter. Next year it will be ready for events.
By late spring or early summer we can probably host 15 to 20 people if some are ok sharing a room; many more if people camp. It would be great to do a thematic summer school or some workshops. If people have suggestions or want to organize something, please get in touch.
We might also end next summer with a larger festival. More info in the next few months.
Thanks to everyone for an amazing summer, and especially to the MamaSoil people for the terraces!
In May, we have:
-Made the big house rudimentarily inhabitable (about six rooms now have light and an electricity outlet, although the floor plan will change in the future).
-Isolated the floor in what was a kitchen and will be a library / working space.
-Cleaned up some walls (got rid of plaster to expose the stone).
-Started repairing the wood in one large room on the first floor.
-Made an outside kitchen, sink and hot shower.
-Worked on the garden.
-Gotten a bunch of matresses, washing machine, dishwasher.
-Celebrated San Isidro with the local population.
Comfort and capacity are quickly increasing, though the focus is still on building and starting some sort of community rather than organizing events. Next construction push: July / August. Get in touch if you want to come; we can comfortably host about 10 people now, 15 if some share a room or sleep in the church (and of course way more if people sleep in tents).
Thanks to everyone who was there in May.
