P.S.: Due to bureaucratic hurdles we have been forced to postpone the signing of the purchase contract at the notary’s office for another week. End of this week  we are expecting to receive the topographic plan of the land  , which will allow us to have clarity about the exact surface in hectares we are purchasing . Please let us know in case you are interested in signing a contract before next Tuesday to become a founder of the project.

In this link you can see a summary of the types of members and a summary of the advantages of being a founder.

And here you can read more about the participation models.

P.S.: I am copying the founders’ benefits section from the founding minutes of the project so that you  have more information about this status:


It is a status acquired by all the types of members listed above who sign the contracts and pay the total deposit before the purchase contract for the property is signed. In the acronyms this status is reflected  in the beginning of the acronym. For example: FSM (Founder Stable Member)

Advantages of the founders:

  • The right to co-create and request to be part of the board of trustees of the future foundation or entity that replaces the Association.

    The FSMs that stand out for their spirit of cohabitation , as well as for their contribution and commitment to the vision of the project, may be offered to participate in the Board of Directors of the Association, as long as the foundation or the entity that replaces it is not operational.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          
  • To receive  extra discounts on the different products and services offered in the project: educational project, Permaculture Academy , Music and Art, yoga classes, healing therapies, events, and so on.

Details regarding the discounts to be offered to each type of member will be reflected in the internal regulations that  the seed  group will start drafting once the cohabitation begins.

  • To benefit from a 20% discount on the established fees (see section 3: participation fees of this document). 
  • The right for their children to receive a 20% discount on those fees valid  at the time, in case they want to stay temporarily , be CO or SMA or SMPA members and settle into the project  requesting  their own plot or lodging.

  • plots, tourist accommodation in the future campground or equivalent project;
  • jobs in the projects of the Healing Biotope;  
  • start an entrepreneurship, and so on.

Within each group, in addition to founder status, the following variables will be taken into account to establish preferences, in order of priority:

  2. occasional accommodation in or around the farmhouse in phase I
