Hi all,
Iv been exploring all the information there is regarding Eco-Villages and permaculture cooperatives in Mexico also regarding organic constructions which materials such as bamboo.

Can you recommend any locations which are NOT at the beach

My priorities to find a place for permaculture living in Mexico are:
1. Not to far off community which is all-ready self sufficient or produces healthy organic foods which they are willing to sell regarding good local food / fruits / vegetables
2. Slightly mountain topography
3. Can be near other inter expats.
4. Water
5. Accesible
6. Internet

So far it seems that www.BosquedeNiebla.com is one of the most advanced eco-village cooperative working with the principles of permaculture and natural bamboo constructions. Are there any others? Also the region of Huatusco in Veracruz Mexico seems interesting IMO.

I have more than 5 years of experience in creating a permaculture farm in another country in latin america.
And would love to discuss our ideas and visions with like-minded people regarding Mexico.
Santi

We are looking too. Planning a trip this summer to check out some projects. When we go, I will post our adventures somewhere on the interwebs...

Bosque Village is in the mountains near Patzcuaro. There are other ecological projects nearby.
Contact Brian Fey for more info on the area.

Water is via rain catchment.
Internet via fixed wireless.

My friends and I were living in Southern Chiapas. We had a lovely experience visiting http://www.manotik.org/ I can’t say what, if any, qualifications it has that you would like or want.

My friends and I moved here with the idea of building a small permaculture community in order to help the poor, natives and displaced people groups have access to nutritious foods and opportunities to learn to provide for themselves. Until we have a firmer plan and I have more financial resources, I’m likely heading back to the states.

I’ll have to check out the link you shared. I’d love to learn where permaculture communities are in Mexico, learn how they’re functioning and their growing techniques.
