    Description

    Our Foundation is an environmental organization working in alternative education, environment, culture and rural development. In the education program, the Farm School, converge all these areas of work, with enphasis in agro-environmental work. The Farm School involved vulnerable children and young people from different populations often displaced by violence or children from the slums of the outside sectors of the city, young farmers and indigenous kids or students with special educational needs.
    For 22 years we built high participation processes where students lead productive projects and social gain, arts and sciences.

    The Farm School is visited by many people, whether for social and humanistic pedagogy we use for daily work with students, or for offering comprehensive farm crops, animals, appropriate technologies, etc..
    Our idea is to turn it into an environmental theme park that is open to the public on weekends to the general public.
