We are a family of three (including 2 dogs, two baby goats and 21 ducks) beginning a small community centered around earth building, healing, and sustainable practices. We recently purchased 3.7 acres of raw land two hours south of Puerto Vallarta Mexico in a very magical rural area. We're 10 minutes from Maito with miles of virgin beaches (and a sea turtle rescue camp). Our property has a communal open air kitchen/palapa. Electricity and Wi-Fi. We can provide groceries and at least one prepared meal a day. We are currently working on a cob earthbag house. We have also just installed a shower with hot water. The land is getting more and more developed every passing day. We have begun gardening vegetables, herbs, palms, bananas, passion fruit, and moringa, etc. Between earthbuilding, sustainable practices, gardening, and animal care, there is sure to be a role for whatever suits your interest. And we would love to learn from any knowledge and experience that you can offer as well! We welcome short & long term stays. For now, we are tent camping. We can provide tent and linens. You will need work boots and a flashlight. This is a very peaceful and magical place that you won’t want to miss.

We are grateful to have help from our local community, and area excited to be learning the Mexican way, while also being able to share our knowledge of alternative building and living.
Following are some of the things that you can experience and learn from while staying with us: Building with natural and locally available resources. Practicing sustainable living. Learning regenerative practices. Experiencing a different culture and accepting the abundance of love in the Mexican community.
We are hoping to learn to better ourselves as teachers, facilitators, and students.
We are looking for people to help mainly with earth building, gardening, animal and land stewardship. Tasks may include: cob building, plastering, roofing, animal care, gardening, cooking, etc.
Beyond that, anything that you may have experience and knowledge about, we are welcoming with an open mind and full gratitude. It would be ideal to find some semi long term caregivers (possible monetary compensation)
