We are an indigenous and indigenous-minded collective dedicated and passionate about bringing back the community vibe of tribe through Ancestral Medicine, Architecture, Organic farming, and the cultural diversity of Art; reminding and reestablishing deep cultural roots of living as a community, and offering at the same time alternative models of development, in respect of the environment and the people.
In our mission of sustainable development and cultural rescue, we offer to bring spaces and tools to the different actors of the communities to develop cooperative cultural and commercial exchange systems.
Develope eco-projects and organic/permaculture crops, using locally available natural resources with the participation of local builders and volunteers, to promote other projects, which strengthen values and cultural identity.
Facilitate the development of craft projects, strengthening sustainability techniques for farmers and / or local producers to improve the quality of their products and meet market requirements.
We think that unity makes the strength. To this end we work on unification within a collective/cooperative of the different actors of the sector.
Reforestation program and planting of traditional construction materials
Health that is physical or mental is a central issue for us. Promoting healthy practices and offer natural products and therapies is another objective we have. Talamanca has many resources at this level, and the rescue of ancestral medicine and knowledge is another challenge we have.
We welcome volunteers to help develope our goals, offering accomodation and basic food, and an oportunity for the ones looking for a new start in life to stay in one of our projets as partners.

We are currently working on the restructuration of our center in Puerto Viejo, where we develop (for now as the situation dont permit us to run all the activities mantioned beelow) new activities like our aquaponic system and mushroom cultivation project that still needs some impulse and a pationate one that would like to grow this project and maybe become a new partner.
-We work in the development of workshops for the manufacturing / transformation of natural and recycled fibers to make paper and different natural composites.
-We also develop a pottery workshop where you can learn and experience some techniques such as the making of ocarinas and various objects and learn about the different technics involving clay like Adobe.
- We are doing an urban garden on the roofs of the project in Puerto Viejo
Also option to work with the college and primary school of the community to exchange about culture and ecology or help on the creation of workshops like art, health, permaculture...
We offer volunteering position for 5 h a day and a free day but we really look for people looking for long term engagement as residents of the project sharing the work, costs(about 100$ pers) and benefits of oure production; as the situation forced us to stop living from tourism it is imposible for us to survive for now as the production is just starting...
