Ethos is a Greek word that means “starting point”, the chance to go back to the origin. It can also refer to the ideals that define a community and the spirit that protects it. Ethos Farm in the Jungle is a place that goes beyond cultures, styles, beliefs and technologies. There you will be able to connect directly with nature while also contributing to the sustainable use of this land’s natural resources.
Ethos is a self-sustaining community inspired in a philosophy of life; the chance to go back to the origin, connecting with our roots and nature, living in fertile land, giving ourselves, our children and our children’s children the seed to a true legacy. It is a group of successful people, mainly entrepreneurs; conscious of the need to create and put sustainable technology to work in the right place in order to adapt modern life to the inalienable commitment we have with nature. Thanks to innovative techniques for organic agriculture and alternative energy as well as for the preservation and renovation of the environment, this project will be able to become the model for future self-sustaining developments worldwide.
The dream of establishing a rural agricultural community began in 1988 in what was then called Rancho La Ilusión where they started experimenting with new and different organic and self-sustaining farming techniques for the area. With expertise acquired during many years, Rancho Ilusión began producing such abundant amounts of flowers, vegetables and fruit that it is possible for the production to be used and consumed today at Sunset World hotels and it was thus that the idea to develop a self-sustaining community emerged.
In 2003 joined the project with the vision of creating a self-sustaining community where shareholders could enjoy all the comforts of modern life in a natural, safe and socially active environment. In 2010 Ethos emerged with a vision of success and a full commitment and respect for the environment.
After an extensive analysis of the land and its conditions, identifying the opportunities and restrictions of the project, EDSA created a master plan that took the preservation of the species in the site in consideration, the land plot definition and the use of the soil. Here’s where a self-sustaining master plan of the highest quality started, incorporating elements of the place, recreating in Ethos a timeless ambiance, making it a favorite place for today, tomorrow and always.
Out of each hectare, only 25% is destined to construction with ecological materials, 75% is destined to forest preservation and agricultural production, although there is no time limit set to begin constructing or cultivating. The rest will be common areas, a community center, a market, a club house with a pool and yoga lessons, an ecological reserve, etc.
