I had a really wonderful time visiting with co-Directors of Casa Ninfa in Lima Peru last month.  They soon became an extension of my family.  I got a chance to go out to their Institute, a former horticultural nursery that they are starting to renovate from years of abuse by commercial chemicals and fertilizers. True to their name Nymph House, the  site, complete with aerial dance instructions with a long silk fabric strung from the highest branches of an ancient shade tree, was just magical.  They are in the process now of getting their non-profit status, and forming a board of directors to guide their work.  they have room for some dedicated and hardworking volunteers who speak Spanish right now, and I’d highly recommend the opportunity to self directed individuals with an interest in community development and urban permaculture.  Photos to follow soon,
