Summerland - Tierra de Verano
Founded in Florida in 1990 as an ecological educational institution dedicated to religious freedom, we incorporated in June 1994. We moved to the AZ/MX border 1996 and created WindTree Ranch, an ecological site using alternative building. In Arizona ('97-'05) we ran free children's summer eco-camps and taught Mexican children in the local AZ/MX border schools. In 2005 we began as volunteer summer teachers in Central Mexico schools. In May 2008 we moved to a rural Central Mexico village because statistics informed us that Mexicans understand ecology and global warming better (59%) than those in the USA (32%). We also learned that Mexico needed teachers of English to reduce emigration.
