A center for arts, culture, adventure, and sustainability in Michoacan!

A permaculture farm and art space located in a forest near Erongaricauro, Michoacán, México.

Dedicated to biodiversity, sustainability, home-scale and large-scale permaculture techniques, organic gardening, art, and community living.

We began in 2004 on 83 acres of pine, oak, and madrone forest. We are off the electrical grid using no outside power. Our water is from rain catchment. We use wood stoves for cooking and have five cabanas, huts, an art studio, and six composting toilets.

Activities can include plant propagation, video production, cooking, general maintenance, seed collection, garden preparation, trail maintenance, eco-construction and more.

Special roles include; Working with Brian on research, writing, and translation. graphic arts, event management, community projects, fundraising, and more.

️️️️️We do experiments with food science, alternative agriculture, lifestyle, and cultural design. We video our work and publish it on social networks such as Youtube and Quora. We need people with a lot of creativity and flexibility.
️️️️️️Food is included: Vegetarian, sometimes with a meat option. There are fresh eggs from the chickens. We don't serve picky eaters.
When there are few people, you will cook for yourselves. When there are many people someone will be assigned to the role.

We rise with the sun. Punctuality is required. If your real goal is to party and travel for free; Don't come. We will not help rich travelers abuse people in this impoverished area.

If you are coming from far away and would a longer stay is an option, we can arrange an online video interview with Brian after your application is received.
