April 28 – May 1, 2022.
Thursday – Sunday
is a festival dedicated to the Earth where people have fun, share information and experiences, plant different species, dance, play music, share food and many other things more…
The basis of the festival is the health of the Earth and people, SHARING ideas, skills, philosophies, art, meditation, yoga, music, food, hiking and climbing.
It is an event organized by volunteers (who are all the people who attend the event), the purpose is to bring together people from different places and cultures who share an interest in caring for the Earth and human beings.
It is an experience in which people and families can express themselves in a comfortable and safe way, and thus be able to discuss, develop and implement ideas that have to do with the health of the Earth and people, as well as share ideas on how to have a more dignified life and in accordance with the patterns of the Earth.
Many of the ideas come inspired from different festivals, as well as in Mexico (Consejo de Visiones) and around the world such as ConFest and Hollow Tree (Australia), among others.
When you enter the festival, you leave behind the conventional world where everything has to have a “profit” and become a participant in the welfare of the community.
The work done by everyone helps us to keep costs down. A minimum of 2 hours per day is recommended. Please check the information area to find out what needs to be done in activities such as cooking, cleaning, preparation of areas, among others.
We will create a great community experience where there will be workshops, dance, yoga, meditation, art, natural building, jamming, alternative technologies, market, barter, health friendly, vegetarian or vegan food and products.
Create your own workshop, just write the theme and time on the boards. There will also be events organized before the festival such as building a pizza oven, adobe construction, certain talks, workshops and practices, yoga, meditations, etc.
All the members will bring the ingredients that will be shared among all, the dishes will be cooked by the members of the festival, so everyone can bring their own recipes that they want to share.
We will do the ritual of the meals all together at pre-established times in order to have the kitchen free at certain times for other activities.
Eight volunteers are needed for each breakfast and meal, as well as for cleaning up the area.
Once you have registered, you will be sent an email with information on what to bring to share with others, this will ensure that we have enough food for everyone.
All attendants should bring everything they need to spend the night comfortably – tent, sleeping bag, sheets, blankets, mattresses, lamps…
