Practices @ the Preserve...

how to live...

  • Lots of windows and skylights throughout the rooms and buildings to maximize use of natural light
  • Biodegradable, environmentally friendly cleaning products, detergents, and soaps

  • Rain water harvesting and aquaculture

  • composting, soil rebuilding and the production of natural organic fertilisers for our gardens 

  • Solar hot water heating in hotel rooms

  • Energy saving light bulbs, presence-detecting lights and photovoltaic lamps

  • Air drying facilities for our hotel linens and towels to reduce the use of gas or electric dryers

  • Reuse of containers and recycling

  • Reforestation - to date we've planted 1500 local species of tree

  • Pesticide-free and non-chemical fertilisers for maintaining hotel grounds

  • Whenever possible, the use of locally produced, organic goods to help the local economy and reduce our carbon footprint  

  • Grey water management - recycling water from sinks, showers, kitchens and laundry

  • All staff are also NVC trained (Non-Violent Communication) to create a sustainable social and working environment

The hope of Valle Escondido, whether guests come to the farm, hotel, café or preserve is that they leave with a positive experience that could potentially influence a stronger connection to nature and sustainable practices.
Valle Escondido believes that fundamentally people enjoy nature. Supporting that connection is part of our mission. We believe that people if given the opportunity will work towards sustainable practices and the preservation of natural environments.
