 We actualize our mission by establishing a living model, including internal micro-businesses, that are designed to support Eco-entrepreneurship and employment in our surrounding region.  Permaculture courses, wellness workshops, and co-creative gatherings are among the tools we use to initiate positive prosperity in the world around us.

 

Fruition Center for Thrivability:

The Fruition Center is Finca Fruición’s focal point for education in holistic culture and earth stewardship. Community Farmstays, apprenticeships, courses, retreats, workshops, and permaculture festivals are produced and operated by the Fruition Center. The Fruition Center is owned by Finca Fruición.  It is a goal that the services for these events are provided for by the food production from Finca Fruición and the surrounding bioregion.  In this way, the events are self-sufficient.
