    We are a family of a community project located in a humid mountain forest.
    We are finishing the construction process of our house, a place that we have been built with our hands and those of many volunteer travelers. Our daily activities involve agroecology, bioconstruction, living education, conscious feeding, natural medicine, music, painting, among others.
