    Ecoaldea en construcción

    Hello, we are starting a community project whose basic principles revolve around:
    1. A commune based on respect for nature and self-sustainability
    2. Achieve that the exchanges at some point are without intermediating the money, rather exchange in kind, under the principle of reciprocity.
    3. Intersubjective relationships would be based on love, with a different perspective from the patriarchal form, therefore we would be in the intention of building improvements and more loving interactions between people.
    4. Collective participation and construction under the principle of agreement and consensus within the participants.
    • Virgin land
    • Wooded with endemic trees
    • The land has enough water
    • Large quantity of volcanic stone, which would be the construction material in the first instance.
    • 3km from the town of San Andres de la Cal
    • 20,000 meters of land

    Hola estamos iniciando un proyecto de comunidad cuyos principios básicos giran en torno a:
    1. Una comuna basada en el respeto de la naturaleza y la auto sustentabilidad
    2. Lograr que los intercambios en algún punto sean sin intermediar el dinero, más bien intercambio en especie, donaciones bajo el principio de reciprocidad.
    3. Las relaciones intersubjetivas estarían fundamentadas en el amor, con una óptica distinta a la forma patriarcal, por tanto estaríamos en la intención de construir mejoras y más amorosas interacciones entre las personas.
    4. Participación colectiva y construcción bajo el principio de acuerdo y consenso dentro de los participantes.
    • Terreno virgen
    • Boscoso con árboles endémicos
    • El terreno cuenta con suficiente agua
    • Gran cantidad de piedra volcánica, que sería el material constructivo en primera instancia.
    • A 3km del poblado de San Andres de la Cal
    • 20,000 mts de terreno

    At first the base of the community we want to do it with Workawayers.
    In principle, it is necessary to build a habitat that can house the people momentarily who are going to build the different spaces that make up the community.
    This first phase, as it will be seen, requires that while the habitat is built with the minimum housing conditions, it is necessary to go through a process of living in pure and direct contact with nature.
    Under these conditions, obviously, what is needed first is the construction of this minimal habitat.

    En un principio la base de la comunidad queremos hacerla con voluntarios
    Se necesita en principio construir algún hábitat que pueda alojar a la gente momentáneamente que van a construir los distintos espacios que constituyen la comunidad.
    Esta primera fase como se alcanzará a ver, pide que mientras se construye el hábitat con las mínimas condiciones de vivienda hay que pasar por un proceso de vivir en contacto puro y directo con la naturaleza.
    En estas condiciones evidentemente lo que primero se necesita es la construcción de este hábitat mínimo.

    We are 30 minutes from Tepoztlán, Morelos, a magical town with a lot of color, food, culture, and parties.
    Although the closest town is a 3km walk away, it is called San Andrés de la Cal, a very quiet town surrounded by green mountains.
    Quiet, natural, safe and beautiful environment.
