In this episode, we sit down with Julian Calleros, the Director of ANIMA Casa Rural – a B&B, artist residency and working farm located in the municipality of Tala in Jalisco, Mexico. ANIMA offers a space that emphasizes the importance of working with nature as opposed to against it. Through permaculture, Julian and his family’s shared ecological beliefs/practices, and focus on the elimination of processed foods, Julian wishes to create a working community amongst every person who visits ANIMA Casa Rural.
