Community Description:

A newborn ecovillage one hour from Bogota in a totally safe area for international visitors, we are dedicated to education and healing. Our name speaks about an explicit commitment to creating conditions for happiness. We are preserving a paradise-like farm with organic fruit, coffee, a crystalline river, and a beautiful lake. Our climate is spring-like year round (70F). Among our permanent ecovillagers are permaculturalists, transpersonal psychologists, eco-architects, one Chinese medicine expert, and overall, lots of smiling people. We are open to new members, visitors, volunteers, and all kinds of exchanges with interested people. At least half of our 10 permanent ecovillagers are fluent in English and we offer intensive Spanish courses if needed. Everybody is welcome!
