  • Description

    Description

    We are a family organization that promotes a more humane and close to nature way of life, under the principles of environmental and social solidarity, responsibility and awareness. We seek help in the construction of an agroecological farm that demonstrates self-sustainability, a small land that can produce what a family needs, balanced food, decent housing, recreation, education, research, creativity and everything that leads to happiness in the to coexist with nature. We support the development of our project in a solidarity economy based on barter and minga. We are working with bio construction from recycled materials such as pallets, mud, bottles; Agroecological practices are carried out under permaculture, we also consider the transfer of technology and knowledge should motivate the investment, comprising a low cost for the peasant population and with limited resources. The above is attractive to call group work, cultural exchange and a healthy life. We look forward to your collaboration.

    Somos una organización familiar que promueve una forma de vida más humana y cercana a la naturaleza, bajo principios de solidaridad, responsabilidad y conciencia ambientales y sociales. Buscamos ayuda en la construcción de una granja agroecológica que demuestre la auto sostenibilidad, un pequeño terreno que pueda producir lo que una familia necesita, alimentación balanceada, vivienda digna, esparcimiento, educación, investigación, creatividad y todo lo que conduzca a la felicidad en el convivir con la naturaleza. Sustentamos el desarrollo de nuestro proyecto en una economía solidaria basada en el trueque y la minga. Estamos trabajando con bio construcción a partir de materiales reciclados como estibas, barro, botellas; las prácticas agroecológicas se realizan bajo permacultura, también consideramos la transferencia de tecnología y conocimientos deben motivar a la inversión comprendiendo un bajo costo para la población campesina y de escasos recursos. Lo anterior es atractivo para llamar al trabajo en grupo, al intercambio cultural y a una vida sana. Esperamos tu colaboración.
