We are a community located within the Nixticuil Forest Protected Natural Area, located 16 kilometers from the historic center of Guadalajara. We live by developing a way of coexisting in harmony with Creation, respecting individual differences and the active promotion of their similarities, organizing individual resources based on common objectives respecting the flora, fauna and the ecological and aesthetic characteristics of the place. This community was born as a tribute to our ancestors and an offering to our offspring.
We are developing a training program that seeks the collective transmission of knowledge focused on the cultivation of intuition and ingenuity for the transformation of good living through the development and integration of practices and tools for day to day.
We currently have projects of bioconstruction, organic and regenerative cultivation, circular economy, supply and community work, management of organic and inorganic wastes, art and community culture. We seek to be more to continue developing more projects! You will help us to make all this posible.
