    This is a space built with ancestral methods that recover ancient techniques of construction, culture and medicine.
    The 3 independent houses, the event hall, the open and collective kitchen, the whirlpool, the temazcal, the cafeteria are spaces of the place that were all built with local materials according to ancestral methods, thanks to the work of teachers wise people from the area using wood, mud, straw and the stones landed on the ground, originated in distant eruptions of Tayta Imbabura.
    We also have organic gardens mostly of vegetables and chicken coops.
