Uma Exploração de Comunidades Sustentáveis na América Latina.

Técnicas Utilizadas

  • Organic Agriculture

    Traditional or pre-industrial agriculture that seeks to maintain the natural structure and health of the soil, avoiding the use of chemical fertilizers, pesticides, or genetically modified seeds. Growing organically requires using biological resources to fertilize plants, control pests, etc, and common techniques include rotating crops over time, composting animal waste and plant materials, and use of cover crops.

  • Natural Building or Bio Construction

    Construction that follows sustainable principles in design and practice including: using sustainably harvested, primary materials, using recycled materials, using human labor and biological resources over mechanical/chemical resources, designing for low energy needs, high durability, and low maintenance.

  • Education

    Organized educational activities to share concepts and techniques, including classes and workshops, events and formal study programs.

  • Recycling

    Local projects that work to promote separation and reuse of recyclable materials (glass, paper, metal and plastic) as a way to reduce the amount of trash produced.
