About.

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.
