CALL FOR APPLICANTS: CREATING A ECOVILLAGE

Towards whom?:

Single people and healthy families without addictions. * People with children, * That seek to leave city life and join a cooperative style of life that respects nature. * Wishing to participate in the learning and practice of a new social model based on the love of nature, permaculture, food sustainability, waste recycling, respect and mutual aid.

Where?:

The place is located within the village "
Joyita de la Cruz", municipality of Cerro de San Pedro, only 15 minutes from San Luis Potosi, the state capital of the same name, in central Mexico.

The rural property is in a
bilberry cactusforest (Myrtillocactus geometrizans). This property is owned by a founder who is making it available to this project. It will not be a place of tourism, will be a place to live, where we are structured as "worker Cooperative" to solve our expenses for food, health, education and services.


What kind of environmental conditions?:

The climate is semi-desert, there are no
twater sources but there is electricity service. On the farm we have anopen water tank that we use like a swimming pool, a prickly pear garden and many bilberry cacti. Coming, when the first rooms are ready, we sow vegetables and plant fruit trees like lemon, peach, papaya, avocado, banana plant and other trees that have been acclimating in thisgeografic region. Also we will introduce chickens and other farm animals.


When?:

The founders are already very active in building a
social area that will be used as temporary housing to remain full time in the Ecovillage. In the summer of 2015 will begin the process of plant families and for that is this call.


How?:

At this early stage, families and people interested should send a “letter of intent” explaining why they want to live in
an Ecovillage. We will send you a form to give us more personal details. Then we will choice the families and individuals to be invited to the Ecovillage. Our ecovillage capacity is 12 to 15 families so far.

According to
arrivals, the families will be installed in temporary rooms, and integrated into all project activities: to prepare the ground, construction of houses, harvest prickly pear, pinch bilberry cactus, planting vegetables, manufacture of products for sale, and other business.

We'll build one by one the houses for each family. We will closely coexisting
each other like a big family, where our children can play safetyand to be happyinside of a natural environment, surrounded by plants, flowers, animals and loving and respectful people.
The initial work will be arduous but very satisfying and full of joy.

How many?:

You need to build a house. The founders are designing
their homes using environmentally friendly materials and recycled as mud (abundant in the region), sawdust (which give us the woodwork), wood (pallets to discard some factories), but you always need to invest in something like bags of cement (for bases), electrical equipment, windows, curtains, foam (for mattresses and chairs), hand tools and other things.
