  • Description

    Description

    We are a Non-profit organization. Our three main objectives are the following:
    We are creating a location where the organization can run workshops and other educational events. we are doing that in the field of sustainable, and environmentally responsible way of living. The three main focal points of this objective is naturally built shelters, permaculture food production and renewable energy production.
    We are also aiming to provide a temporary shelter for people who need assistance and a platform from where they can take steps to restart their re-integration into society due to one or more of the following reasons: having to get away from a violent family background, escape homelessness, avoid relapse in an addiction recovery situation.
    In the process we hope to form a community of permanent residents who have the necessary skills and determination to run and continuously improve the organization’s off grid location and the programs within.
    We have purchased the land just a few weeks ago, therefore there is nothing there as of yet. It's a bare piece of desert with bushes, and an eventual tortoise. We have makeshift dry toilets, and to take a shower we are going to the nearby Tecopa Hot Springs. This will soon change when we put up the first structure. within the next two weeks.
