We hope that one day La Joya will be completely self-sustaining, a refuge from the world’s increasingly contaminated food and water supply. We have a small garden on-site from which we cook often. We’re currently working to clear and plant a nearby two-hectare plot of land, and are investigating ways to create a naturally replenishing water supply. We are always open to learning from others who have knowledge, experience, or ideas in these fields.
