In the eco village they will learn how to live lightly on the land, share experiences with with other families. Learn about crops and species in the cloud forest ecosystem. In The town, they will learn about design, building with natural or recycled materials, learn about the plants/crops from the coastal dry tropics. Here the will have opportunity to lear about the modern Zapotec culture and traditions, (language , textiles, cooking, folk dance, etc.)
In Veracruz I need help with general farm work, coffee processing and harvesting. Composting, pruning trees, etc. While in Oaxaca, I need help with natural/traditional building. Ecotecnologies, general construction work and gardening.

The volunteers will have their own room, and will share a bathroom. There are hammocks available in hot weather. Food is locally sourced and organic as much as possible.
The site in the isthmus is located half way between the colonial cities of San Cristobal and Oaxaca. The bus station is just two blocks away. The place in Veracruz is in the cloud forest reserve, part of a community of like minded people, with an Ashram and a famous farm coop, near by.
