    -on parle aussi français-

    We are starting a wild project in the forest near San Jose del pacífico, Oaxaca, México. The project is very young, we have no electricity  and we are cooking with fire, which gives a magical taste to the food.
    We do have fresh water, directly coming from the mountains ;)
    The plan is to protect the forest, build ecohouses from local materials, develop irrigation systems, grow food, connect with local farmers and offer silent retreats, meditation, fasting, for those who need a break from industrialised civilisation ;)

    We live in a magic mountains with rivers,
    pine threes, mushrooms and flowers around us.
    We also have connections with other projects in Mazunte, on the beach, so we are between the mountains and the seas - between avocados and coco's. ☺

    The place is hard to reach by foot but you could make it if you are adventurous enough, otherwise we can pick you up in San José del pacífico. We could catch you in Miahuatlán as well, because we go there to get supplies once a week.

    We eat 3 times per day, we go to catch food every week.

    We are vegetarian people and we don't drink alcohol here.

    Please don't bring plastics, because we have no waste recycling facility yet ;)

    If you are interested in having a calm and peacufull experience with a sweet community, you are most welcome to come and see our mistic land. Families are even more welcome, we need more childs to play in this free wild school.
