  • Description

    Description

    We are a collective vision that understands humanity as a great family in service of the planet. It is located in a rural area where we practice daily a healthy lifestyle. It is a conscious experience of appreciating the value of family, sharing a new path for our children, having the opportunity to protect and embrace the elders and empowering ourselves in achieving a community life.

    We are located in the mountains of the Central Mountain Range, 20 minutes from Ginebra, Valle del Cauca, about and hour and a half from Cali, Colombia. We are at 1800 meters above sea level in a rural environment, with weather alternating between rainy and dry periods, and temperatures around 15 ºC to 30 ºC. The municipality that welcomes us, formed mostly by farmers, is calm and friendly.

    We are now 9 adults, 2 homeschooled children and 2 baby, 7 Dogs, 2 Cats, some chicken and ducks, and many bee hives.
