    [Please reply to host in Spanish]

    We are a project in the middle of a cloud forest, connecting with nature.
    A corner of that cloud forest asked us for care and restoration. Many beings live in it, such as the Fallen Leaves of Monte, guardian of the forest that appears especially to children.
    This is an artistic and pedagogical space that seeks to reconnect with nature, with other people and with ourselves. We want to bring people closer to other ways of doing and living.
    It is a space for coexistence and exchange of knowledge and support, focused on caring for the living, self-management, cultivation and personal and collective growth.

    Somos un proyecto en pleno bosque de niebla, de conexión con naturaleza.
    Un rincón de ese bosque de niebla nos pidió cuidado y restauración. En el viven muchos seres, como el Hojarasquín de Monte, guardián del bosque que se aparece especialmente a les niñes.
    Se trata es un espacio artístico y pedagógico que busca reconectar con la naturaleza, con las demás personas y con nosotres mismes. Queremos acercar a la gente otras formas de hacer y vivir.
    Es un espacio de convivencia e intercambio de saberes y de apoyo, enfocado al cuidado de lo vivo, la autogestión, el cultivo y el crecimiento personal y colectivo.
