Quaker Leadership Program’s Mexican Summer Environmental Workcamp
A week-long immersion in the stunningly beautiful Mexican cloud forest.The program is held at the Las Cañadas ecovillage in Huatusco, Mexico. This 600 plus acre property includes a dairy, cheese workshop, reforestation areas, a cloud forest preserve, eco-tourism center, community school, bio-intensive gardens and wonderful views of local mountains. There are solar heated and wood heated showers and other eco-technologies for daily life, delicious meals, and pure mountain spring water. Participants work along side of Mexicans to practice sustainable life skills related to food production, natural building, preventing erosion and other conservation measures. This is a transformational experience, creating energy and optimism for a sustainable future. Applications still be accepted through April 2017.
