Lets turn our center in Xochicalco into a proper retreat place.
Initially we just wanted to construct a building with 6 extra bedrooms. However our neighbor just contacted us that they need to sell their land and house.
Their selling price is a bit more than what we would spend to build on our own land but this option would give us not only ready accommodation for 30-50 people but also add a dining hall, kitchen and an extra 1600m2 of land; almost trippling the size of the land we have now (950m2 = 1/4 acre).
You can see that obtaining the neighbors land would be ideal for us. This is not only for having more land but it also prevents getting disturbed by noisy neighbors (most are!).
Would you like to help us? As you can see the total amount needed is quite a large. Few bigger donations would really help:-) Still any donation will help us get closer! What ever you can give from your heart will be greatly appreciated.

** You may have seen that the amount to raise went up. This is because the land with the classrooms is now included! Great news :-)
