We are an intentional community focusing on integral stewardship of the land through permaculture designs, raising whole healthy children, honoring our bodies as temples, and harmonious relationships with each other using non-violent communication.
A casual 40 minute drive through some lovely pueblos and charming vistas brings you to a small farming village, named San Agustin, and it’s new landmark - a silver school bus RV, parked at the top of our driveway, marking the fruition of our six month journey through latin america, seeking and finding a new home with a view.
On the farm you will find Casa La Vista, complete with a new 10 meter wide yoga deck, hundreds of young fruit trees, dozens of mature ones, The Fruition Center for Holistic Ecology, tilapia ponds, school bus cabin, bunk house, greenhouse, composting toilets, solar heated showers, swimming pond, wood burning hot tub and sauna, permaculture gardens, and plenty of space to host friends, and welcome future members to build their own home in the hills.
We are actively building a substantial infrastructure, including our up and coming community center, complete with bunk house, kitchen, and workshop space. We have located 3 artesian springs on the property and have been able to supply fresh drinking water to three different zones on the property, with just one of them.
We are welcoming interns, eco-farmstay guests, & volunteers who don’t mind “rustic” accommodations, and enjoy the creative process of breaking ground and building hosting grounds for generations to come.
As we have not made this effort and investment merely for ourselves, we are actively welcoming co-creators to many degrees. We also welcome visitors and donations to keep our efforts fruitful.
If you feel a resonance with our project and feel inspired to donate, we have a donation button on our website and will certainly put your contributions to very good use.
Thank you for your interest in our little piece of paradise. May your life be filled with inspiration and empowerment.
