Eco Hacker Farm History

December 2015: out on the living room balcony at Veintidos (except at this point the house was a couchsurfing mecca and not really a project) Franz whose caravan had broken down and Aimee who was hosting him were going over what idealistic aspirations they had for a future that seemed somewhat abstract and rather unlikely at the time.
