Area: Distrito FederalA is a rural development project, aiming to create self-sufficiency for the project and community surrounding the project thru combination of ecological farming, education and cottage industry. We are part of a non profit spiritual and social service organization, and follow the principles of Neohumanism (which in short is love for all humans, other living beings and animate and inanimate) and PROUT (Progressive Utilization Theory). We practice yoga, meditation, follow a sentient (healthy) lifestyle. Our ecological farming is based on a mixture of permaculture, biodynamics and other alternative means to achieve self-sufficiency. Regularly we have some bio-construction going on as well, developing our place to be a spiritually based community, with social service projects for the locals. The project is run by a yogic nun, Didi , who has dedicated her life to self-realization and service to humanity. She teaches yoga and meditation, works as a missionary, and is lifelong learner. Ivo is our longest staying volunteer and is dedicated developing our farm to self-sufficient place where people of all ages can come and learn about alternative and healthy lifestyle. Usually there are some volunteers around, and a few local workers as well. Also we have 4 dogs, 4 cats, and some native animals around.
