About.

Our land project here in the central rural Nicaragua is focused on living & modelling from our sacred teacher mother nature. Our way of life is in alignment with our planets natural cycles, minimising our ecological footprint, building in a regenerative & holistic way, creating economic opportunities for local community & to eat a majority of seasonal produce distributed locally by our neighbours & fellow farmers.

The underlying mission of the land project is to be guardians of the food forest we are planting here, abundant with exotic Nicaraguan fruits & perennial root crops. Its now more important than ever that we localise our resources & food security within our communities to thrive in self – reliance. 

Please feel free to contact us, we are always looking for enthusiastic & skilled volunteers to help us bring our vision to life.

ACTIVELY LOOKING FOR A SHORT TERM TO LONG TERM VOLUNTEERS FOR JAN TO APRIL 2020

***Please look us up on Facebook/Instagram for more photos and videos! The page is called "Nuestra Finca Sagrada".*** @NUESTRAFINCASAGRADA #nuestrafincasagrada #oursacredfarm

If you are looking for a rural cultural immersion, this is for you! Improve your Spanish & off-grid living skills all at once.

Lodging on the farm is pretty basic and rustic, though we do have a large pagoda style building designed and built by Sunray Kelly. It's still a work in progress but will serve as the communal area and kitchen, as well as a yoga space. We also have a more conventional building made from concrete that serves as a caretaker and guesthouse storage space. We have a treehouse and outdoor kitchen with a grill and oven, cob table and bench. There's a composting toilet and we are open to projects you may like to begin!
We are electrically off-grid, but do receive municipal water. In the dry season (January-May) we are rationed water 2-3 days a week., however we drink, wash & shower from a large water tank. The water is safe to drink, however bathing may be infrequent.

At the moment our long term plan is sort of undecided, we're focusing on short term projects like planting more fruit trees and a vegetable garden. Also building a natural pool to serve as a reservoir for irrigation (and bathing).

We are looking for all sorts of volunteers, from beginners to experts, to help share ideas and energy. We are open minded folk who want to create a space for growth of all kinds, personal and natural. Although we aren't at the farm full time year round, we have a network of friends and neighbours who look out for us and us for them. Our progress has been start stop but we have reached a point where we can host people and move projects along.

Please send us a message if you'd like to come join us. We'd love to host you, especially those keen in getting off the "gringo trail" and experiencing the Nicaraguan countryside. Who knows, you might even learn some Spanish?

Are you interested in Natural Building? Living Off-Grid? Basics in Permaculture? Learning self-reliance? Meeting conscious nomads who want to make a difference?
We are your community & we want to connect with you.

We want to immerse you in the wild Nicaraguan farm life. Rise with the early morning call of our howler monkeys, start the day slow with yoga in our temple space, live barefoot for 5 days, learn to build with bamboo, make cob & eco-bricks. Step out of your COMFORT ZONE & live simply with natures cycles.

We want you to walk away empowered and perhaps questioning Western society’s relationship with the natural world. In this rural and rustic setting you will have a sensory immersion, we encourage you to connect with your primal self and invite in humbling wisdom and deeper appreciation for Gaia.

Daily meditations, yoga practice, 3 meals per day, and projects for you to spend time on, but you are also free to spend as much time with yourself as you choose. On the farm there will be plenty of spaces to “ground down” and connect with yourself, each other, and the land.

There will be one 'Rule', and this is the choice to DISCONNECT. We will offer to keep your phone for you for the duration of the event, giving you the opportunity to be truely present.

Day 5: Food Forest Tour - With our local friend & farmer Don Pedro, we believe his farm is one of the best examples of permaculture & agroforestry in Nicaragua. :

Food & Water: We provide the food! Yes!! We will provide all meals during the gathering, you can expect delicious meals full of love, with locally sourced fruits and vegetables. Our meals are primarily vegetarian, and mostly vegan. We can accommodate some dietary restrictions.
Breakfasts will consist of fresh fruit, while lunches and dinner will likely consist of rice and beans with vegetables. We will provide drinking water.

Accomodations:
This event is a BYOS (bring your own shelter) event. We have plenty of covered space for tents and hammocks & any other type of shelter we can help you set up in a cosy spot around the property. .We can offer you outdoor jungle showers, composting toilets, and a space to do yoga and meditation (in our temple!). It will be the dry season in Nicaragua, meaning hot dry days & cooler in the evenings (very minimal chance of rain). 

Full Disclosure*** this is not for those looking for a luxury retreat, this is a hands-on & physical experience, a grounding & humbling gathering with little to zero luxuries, we sleep outside, cook on a grill with fire, most days we will be getting down & dirty building. And thats the way we like it!
