Ground down and indulge in a weekend celebration of the earth and all her abundance.

Our trees are dripping in the magical, purple tropical fruit which has stolen so many hearts and stomachs.

There is a legend about the fruit, dating back to Queen Victoria, where she offered a reward of 100 sterling pounds to anyone who could deliver a Mangosteen. And this is the source of its unusual designation as the "Queen of Fruits”.

What a treat to have this bounty growing straight off the abundant land of Punta Mona.

For the duration of the festival you will be living in within the intentional community of Punta Mona.

This is a co-creative, co living space, of shared meals, common integration spaces and connection.

We have a permanent community of staff and volunteers who keep Punta Mona alive, tending to the farm, the chickens, our buildings, our kitchen and food, and the overall health and energy of our people.

We’re fruit lovers, seed savers, compost fanatics, organic chefs, natural builders, herb witches, writers and artists - and we look forward to opening our doors and hearts to you.
