Their goal is to promote the positive interaction between man and nature, leaving little impact on the environment.


Internship

At Mama Roja they provide internships to students to teach them about ways to promote eco-friendly living and sustainable technologies. These internships at minimum last a month but priority is given to students who stay the whole term. This hands-on experience provides that the internships will focus on the various aspects of sustainable living: organic gardening, appropriate technologies, natural food production, earthen and natural building.
