    Hello partners and partners!
    Welcome to Colombia!
    If you are looking for a place to be in real contact with the Colombian mountain, then this is the right place ...
    We are located in the mountain north of Medellin, surrounded by a lot of vegetation, a totally tropical climate, at a height of 2200mt above sea level ...
    We are a group of friends that has been for many years with the dream of living in community, and we have finally found the place to make our dream come true.
    Our intention with volunteering is to advance in the construction of the whole structure and start with the organic gardens, but at the moment we only have a small house and a lot of motivation.
    None of us lives there for the moment, only our neighbors live, don Jesus, his wife and children ... it's a really magical place, with floors cleared of pesticides and zero pollution of the city, since it is located approximately 2 hours 30 minutes from Medellin by bus, and to reach the community you should walk approximately 30-40 minutes, there is no access to cars, so it allows it to be a suitable space for all our community projects.

    Hola parceros y parceras!
    Bienvenidos a Colombia!
    Si estan buscando un lugar donde estar en contacto real con el monte colombiano, pues este es el lugar indicado...
    Estamos ubicados en la montaña al norte de Medellin, rodeados de mucha vegetacion, un clima diverso, a una altura de 2200mt sobre el nivel del mar...
    Somos un grupo de amigos que ha estado durante muchos años con el sueño de vivir en comunidad, y por fin hemos encontrado el lugar para hacer nuestro sueño realidad..
    Nuestra intencion con el voluntariado es avanzar en la construccion de toda la estructura y empezar con las huertas organicas, pero por el momento solo tenemos una pequeña casa y mucha motivacion.
    Ninguno de nosotros vive alli por el momento, solo habitan nuestros vecinos,don jesus,su esposa e hijos... es un lugar realmente magico, con suelos limpios de pesticidas y cero contaminacion de la ciudad, pues esta ubicado aproximadamente a 2 horas 30 minutos de medellin en bus, y para llegar a la comunidad debe caminar unos 30-40 minutos aproximadamente, no hay acceso a carros, por lo cual permite que sea un espacio apto para todos nuestros proiyectos de comunidad.
