What we aim to solve

There are many contributing factors to the current state of dis-ease in our world, including sugar, corporate experiments, chemical food industry, pest controls, poison water, animal cruelty, over use of antibiotics, the pharmaceutical industry taking over the medical schools, waste, sound, air and plastic pollution, little to no emotional health education, overpopulation, economic disparity, dead soil, and species extinction. Permaculture, Organics, and Farm to Table Farming are ways we are addressing the problem. We are teaching people how to take care of themselves and their loved ones in the most sustainable Green way possible. We're doing everything we can to protect the tremendous biodiversity of this particular region, while participating in the global movement.

Charting Impact

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?

What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?

How will they know if they are making progress?

What have they accomplished so far and what's next?

Our goal is to expand our current operations to continue our educational programs and positive environmental impact projects.

We plan to reach our goals through workshops, learning health retreats, webinars, online coaching, environmental clean up activities, and experiential biodynamic farming on our finca. We have a volunteer exchange program between Eden and the small farming community where our farm (finca) is located. We acquired the land to build a community with both non-profit and for profit components. We will continue to honor ourselves and our world through music, dance, personal health practices, environmental clean up projects and love.

Our team is fully capable of meeting these goals, being highly educated professionals with much experience in Natural Health Education and Biodynamic farming.

Our measurements, assets, and programs are increasing.

We've accomplished 4 years in our current location with investors, volunteers, students and retreat guests learning together. Eden's life transforming program of nutrition education, colon hydrotherapy, bowel reprograming, detox, longevity fitness, sacred plant medicine, and mental health provide a well rounded approach to health & wellness.
