    Description

    I am Mariana, from Mexico city, right now Im an art teacher in a project, a farm/school project that started 4 years ago with a group of people in the search to transform the way we relate to nature and it´s processes. Building coherence and connections through nature, art and science. Its a place where we work, study , play and learn with nature in different ways like agriculture, nature- friendly architecture, animals, bees, system designing, cooking among other things . Its located in a rural area 1:30 from Mexico City, in Estado de México state, 40 minutes from Valle de Bravo. Its an oak pine forest, 2,450 meters above sea level, during winter gets cold, and during summer rains a lot.

    there´s always work to do here, and help is always appreciated, we can easily find something for you to do depending on your talents and what you think you can contribute to the project, we are looking for experienced workers, people who have worked in organic farms, or who have experience in bioconstruction or general carpentry, community work, agriculture (seeds, planting, market gardens, organic production), thesis investigation.
