Our farm is 30 hectares, we have a hotel area, with great installations for volunteers and events we have here all time, he have workshops, agroecology conferences, meditation and yoga meetings, etc.
The kibbutz is designed to be community for people who wants to live in the fields, work in the land and be closer with the nature, and to share with people coming of different cultures and countries. By now we are a community of 10 people 4 of them are from Uruguay, 1 from New York City and the rest from different states of Mexico.
In the farm we are in a transition period because we are starting a training center of agroecology education about sustainable vegetable gardens, seeds production, chicken and eggs organic production, organic fruits production and we are organizing a farmers market in the closest city called Querétaro.
The other part of the farm we are planning that could be organic in 2 or 3 years. Our objective is to make our farm sustainable about the food we consume inside the farm, then to sell the rest in the farmers market. All this work we are doing is for making it real in this year so we need some strong hands to help with this.
