  • Description

    Description

    We are an n.g.o. who have founded a community farm in Huila Colombia, working with medicinal plants, sustainable building, and cultivating traditional crops such as coffee, corn, fruit trees and vegetables. We always make sure to use native seeds, and as much as possible use organic practices. Our aim is to create a sustainable community following shamanic traditions with respect to the care and use of medicinal plants. We also study esoteric spiritual traditions, such as gnosis, the vedas, Christianity and Islam, seeing all religions as pearls in the necklaceof divinity, and often meet in the evenings to play music or to practice Chikung, Yoga or to simply share the days experiences.
