From 1730 to 1736, a series of violent eruptions covered huge extensions of the fertile farmlands with lava, rock and ash. I can’t hardly imagine the frustration of the farmers.

So that’s what they did, they got there by patiently shovelling, and over the years, they perfected the method.Nature shows you the way, so the first thing you have to do is look around. In addition to the endemic species, we try to grow plants that are well adapted to these dry conditions and do not need so much water.
