OUR CREDO
We are all part of the community in which we live in. We recognize that we cannot live in isolation, regardless of the walls around our properties. Similarly, we cannot build walls between ourselves and the environment, neither contain the air we use, nor ignore the impact our lifestyles have on the planet.

Nature nurtures and encourages diversity. It is a force of life in which all things grow and bear fruit to create a next generation.

Nature is perfect. It is the way God created it. It has no bias nor preconceptions. It accommodates all shapes, sizes and designs, whether they be colossal and colorful or tiny and dull. This creates a diversity that achieves a perfect balance.

We acknowledge that a diversity in language, customs, religion, colour, size and talent also attains a human balance and that none may dominate the other. For this we have respect.

We want to stay in a place where we can practice this respect for all life in a simple and practical way as our lives only have meaning if we acknowledge and nurture that respect.
