In 2014 we purchased a small plot of land in the northern highlands of Nicaragua, near Jinotega, with the intention of establishing a cooperative ecovillage and organic microfarm based on permaculture design principles.


We’ve spent the years since networking, planning, organizing and fundraising.  Our team – a cross-cultural collaboration between local Nicaraguan builders, farmers, and designers, and entrepreneurs from half a dozen other countries – has been developing a master plan based on careful observation of the land, its context and ecology.

We are planning on hosting our 2nd annual Alternative Building Convergence here in 2021, during which we will begin construction on our design for a Modular Autonomous Container Home Integrated with the Natural Environment: a MACHINE for living.
