We explore ways of living that connect us to others and the natural world. We seek to balance the wisdom and skills of the past with those things which have value today.

We combine our efforts with others to create simple, comfortable shelter using local and natural materials with handcrafted care.

We cultivate and actively explore the uses of local and beneficial plants like prickly pear, agaves and bamboo.

We integrate into daily life, traditions that bring enjoyment such as building and baking in wood-fired ovens, cooking with native foods or hosting multi-cultural exchanges and informal musical gatherings.

we create opportunities for learning and sharing through:
