Rio Muchacho Organic Farm is offering a one month intensive Organic Agriculture and Permaculture Course! Starting on August 10th, 2013.

Rio Muchacho Organic Farm sits on 11 green hectares in a small valley on the coast of Ecuador, 15 minutes from the popular beach town of Canoa. It has been developed as a sustainable farm and learning center based on agroecology and permaculture principles.

The property has areas of food forests in addition to a large vegetable garden, pasture and agroforestry areas, models of alternative energy, rotational animal raising areas and a meditation/yoga garden overlooking the river. There are over a hundred crops rotated throughout the year, and the farm is home to many pigs, chickens, dogs, ducks, cats, goats, composting worms, cows, guinea pigs and horses.


Organic Farming and Permaculture Course
We consider organic farming a philosophy as well as a practice. It does not only mean that crops are cultivated without the use of agricultural chemicals, but that the farm develops a natural equilibrium so it does not need the use of any of these kinds of sprays.
To achieve this, the principles of organic farming should be followed. We work to return all organic material to the soil and NEVER burn. Organic matter is the most important part of organic agriculture so feeding the soil, not the plant is key. Healthy soil grows healthy plants which contribute to the growth of healthy people.

Permaculture means permanent, sustainable culture and land use. It is a design system based on common sense, logic, energy conservation and optimum use of all components. It involves linking alternative technologies with animals, crops, architecture and social structures, to create a sustainable system of interaction between humans, animals, plants and the Earth. Our composting toilets, banana circles and water recycling systems, along with other alternative energy solutions and farming techniques, are some examples of Permaculture.
