“Diversity creates harmony, and harmony creates beauty, balance, bounty and peace in nature and society, in agriculture and culture, in science and in politics.”
We cultivate healthy soils, healthy ecosystems and regenerate landscapes for the benefit of our community and local biodiversity.
We work to transfer practical skills and create production systems that mimic local ecosystems to create conditions where life can flourish, in order to foster food and land sovereignty, and enable communities to better adapt to changes in the economy, technology and risks such as climate change.
We actively promote the values of a regenerative culture: peace, respect, knowledge transfer, and the rescue and conservation of our Afro-indigenous heritage to help foster a paradigm shift and return to healthy exchanges between humans and nature. and a sense of good living and justice within our communities.

What we now call the province of Samana was home to the Ciguayos, Ciboneyes, and other indigenous groups who migrated from parts of the Caribbean, Central and South America. After 1492, when the island was colonized, other groups of enslaved peoples were brought forcefully from different parts of Africa, and later many others migrated as free peoples from other parts of the Caribbean and from the US, seeking true freedom. We would like to acknowledge and honour the traditional owners of the land, those who migrated to these lands and worked hard to make it their home, and pay respects to the Elders of this land, those of the past and the present.
