Windtree Ranch is a Sister Group of ours and I would like to promote it a bit here.
"Spiritual growth takes time. A vow to a monastic lifestyle was made in 1979. SummerLand Monastery, ATC was conceived in 1991. Incorporated as Summerland Corp. in 1994. WindTree Ranch was established as the mortgaged home of SummerLand Monastery, ATC in 1996. "Mortgage free in 2003" was our goal and we made it! Gas prices undermined our work on the land. Teaching off the land was accomplished from 2003-2008. In June of 2008 we moved to Mexico.
Now we are teaching rural subsistence farmer's children so that they will be able to support themselves in Mexico. We have lived on the USA/Mexico border long enough to know how non-productive a lifestyle can be when parents keep trying to "jump the border" for a better life. We are working from Central Mexico to increase educational levels from inside Mexico. "
