Summary

The JOHNE permaculture demonstration center is a permaculture educational space that promotes and encourages autonomous and regenerative development with the use and promotion of alternatives, that favor changes in people's life patterns, helping direct towards sustainable practices and care for the environment. Among the most important results we have had in the Johne Project are the prevention of soil erosion and an increase in biodiversity in flora and fauna up to 500%.

Challenge

We are located in one of the poorest areas in Hidalgo Mexico, and in one very difficult ecosystem such as the semi-desert of the mezquital valley, our neighbours are poor communities from the mountain surroundings, in majority indigenous communities. Is visible that poverty, hunger and lack of education is causing the deterioration of both, society and ecosystem. Not enough water and very low agricultural activities sum to this circumstances making people migrate to the US or other cities.

Solution

JOHNE is an interactive space for people from the region and offers a portal to find better ways to correlate with the environment, through sustainability techniques such as bioconstruction, permaculture and ecosocial design. Program established to develop training for the proper management and conservation of natural resources, traininhgs to gain tools to improve ways to produce organic food, build spaces with natural materials, restore life, clean and capture water while restoring environment.

Long-Term Impact

We are planing on opening biotopes with this model in every place possible, so far we believe that in 3 years we can open 4 more spaces that will have a permanent and stablished food forest, watter catchment and treatment systems, natural housing and other modules that will be providing a space to teach and learn permaculture in a demostrative environment as education for sustainable develpment, Every site impacts 1000 families anually that replicates the practices and creates local resonance
