SUSTAINABILITY & CONSERVATION
- We share an organic farm.
- We are growing food.
- We make natural soaps.
- We make natural medicines from locally harvested medicinal plants.
- We make raw organic vinegar, pickles, and hot sauce.
- We have a small natural foods business that provides income to support the project.
- We eat a whole foods diet using mostly locally produced products.
- We plant trees and grow trees for building materials an fire wood.
- We use natural materials from our farm for building and landscaping (such as, fallen trees, clay, grasses, rocks, and more).
We are rebuilding the soil with organic matter, including manure.
- We use a very minimal amount of packaged foods.
- We actively recycle.
- We collect our water from a spring on our farm.
- We use minimal amounts of electricity.
- We trade and barter whenever possible.
- We are passing the message of sustainability along through children and youth in schools and other meetings.
Our approach to conservation includes, not only purchasing and planting the lands, but also educating children, youth and adults to be stewards of this gift of the Earth. We have found that many Central American people simply have not been educated to understand the importance of conservation or how it affects their own communities, or the world community.
