Community partners Susan, Walter and Cristian
Sacred Land Farm (FincaSagrada.com) offers a revitalizing student program of earth-friendly biodynamic farming and permaculture practices, reconnecting to the earth, community living and life-path tutoring.
Join us in the beautiful mountains of Ecuador close to the storied village of Vilcabamba. We have a 1,200 acre farm, including a two-acre intensive garden with fruit trees, ten rolling acres of irrigated pastures, milk cows, goats, burros, chickens, and bees.
We offer a four-week student program ( maximum of six students) of living close to the land in harmony with nature and growing your own biodynamic food. Woven into this will be the opportunity to explore your own highest possibilities in the world. While enjoying our collaborative living practices, you’ll gain insight into your highest possibilities among life paths. Farm partner Susan Davis has founded more than 40 innovation networks ranging from organics and solar to social investing, women’s economic empowerment and consciousness. She teaches you how to hear your intuition more clearly to take risks around your values to find your optimal life path, tailoring each program to the individual. See KINSinnovation.org, which also offers her free book, The Trojan Horse of Love.
Walter has farmed for more than forty years and will share both his practical farming skills and his love for Biodynamic principles through lectures and meditation exercises.
Our Ecuadorian partner Cristian Ojeda shares his knowledge of local practices, his understanding of medicinal plants and the indigenous history of our valley, his heritage.
We have solar power and internet, living simply and working by hand. We live and share meals in community where you will develop personal and collaboration skills, not to mention inter-cultural education and learning Spanish.
