    Our project is asking for people willing to help and co creat together in our community,
    Actually we are working with bamboo construction and general maintainces on our vegetable garden.
    We are located on the North Pacific cost of Mexico on the state of Sinaloa. The closest city is Mazatlan (35min). And the closest village is Stone Island (7km).
    This is a rural and remote place out of Mazatlan city.
    We are not living there at the moment, we have one house that we use to rent for visitors, we have a long rental future member living there, and we have glamping tents where our future member arquitech builders is living. There is a big space for camping and we have shawers and compost toilets.
    The rest of the memeber live on Stone Island village 7km from the Ecovillage.
    Volunteering is a way to learn and live in a natural and rural environment, while you know another perspective of life.
