Our organization is a community located in Joquicingo, Estado de México, 20 minutes away from Ancestral Magic Town "Malinalco" and an hour and a half away from Mexico city.
Our place was founded to be a sustainable community where we want to offer people the opportunnity to learn ecological and enviromental practices, recover knowledge of traditional agriculture and local handcrafts, produce organic food and implement a CSA (community shared agriculture) in the region, offer art and agriculture summer courses and workshops to learn about sustainable living.
We are at the very beginning of the development of our project. This summer, we are finishing building the main house which will be used right now to host volunteers. Starting in June, we are starting our reforestation program, building our community garden and greenhouses.
