Fundación Origen, an initiative originally conceived by Mary Anne Müller as Pirque Agroecological School in 1991, is recognized as a pioneer in educating agricultural technicians with Agroecologic vocation, and since its beginning, it has collaborated in reflecting about sustainable production as an essential strategy of community development. Nowadays, Fundación Origen has two primary and secondary education establishments (one of them offering technical education). It also administrates a rural market and participates in the conservation of a Nature Sanctuary located in the Maule Region along with small landowners.
