“Their concerns for the forest and wildlife go hand in hand with their concerns for their neighbors.”
In partnership with a diverse mix of young enthusiasts they created the Apapachoa Foundation which resides in the neighboring agricultural community of Santa Julia where they are building a transformational community dedicated to health, wellness and happiness. They practice and teach sustainable farming, water management practices according to 8 common sense principles:
1.Care for the water
4.Reject plastic containers
7.Care for all living things
8.Think Global Act Local
As part of their sustainability efforts, the group is cultivating an organic brand of produce, creating a line of up-cycled clothing and powering their lives by constructing bicycle machines that can generate energy for house hold appliances and other electrical needs.
Eco-volunteers of all ages and nationalities visit Apapachoa to experience life in the forest, learn Spanish, teach or partake in any of their dance workshops, music classes, permaculture gardening, sustainable construction practices and water management systems.
“To learn with a different culture can be the experience of a lifetime.”
