  • Description

    Description

    This is a place in the heart of Ecuador, in the rural area of Santo Domingo de los Tsáchilas, we truly belief that we can live integrated with nature, in community with other living things and with other people. In search of new ways of regenerating the ecosystems we find Analog Forestry (AF) methodology we are using to regenerate our forest and to give real value to our biodiversity. All we need can be harvest from the real forest.

    In the path of thriving in community we are giving other experiences to the neighbors kids to enhance the respect of nature, with movies, birdwatch traveling, clases of composting and harvest, writing and reading and art.

    Right now we are 5 members of the family working in different projects, and we have 2 half time hirings that help us in the day a day work.

    We are one of the demonstrative places in Ecuador of Analog Forestry. Here also travellers can integrate with ancestral community of Tsachilas. Also is a strategical place if you want to travel because Santo Domingo is in the middle of coast and mountains.
