A community seed-bank is being organised in order to conserve traditional and heirloom seeds as a way of ensuring food security threatened by the introduction of hybrid and genetically modified seeds.

Los Rústicos del Norte is a traditional acoustic band formed by musicians from the community including several young prodigies! Their second album is coming soon.


Other community projects include an organic coffee plantation, an organic citrus orchard and a sugar-cane press which was brought back into use after a long period of abandonment. All processing is done onsite and by hand and depending on the time of year students may have the opportunity to help out and learn about the processes.
