13th Annual Permaculture Design Course in Belize

"Food Security Through Biodiversity"

March 3, 2018 - March 16, 2018

at Maya Mountain Research Farm

near San Pedro Columbia, Toledo District, Belize

Co-taught by Marisha Auerbach, Christopher Nesbitt, Celini Logan, Rhonda Baird, Alex Nikesch and Monica Ibacache and local guests

Through lecture, discussion, small groups, site visits, participants will gain the tools to create sustainable, ecologically based homes, farms, businesses and communities.

Tucked into the foothills of the Maya Mountains, two miles up river from the village of San Pedro Columbia in southern Belize, Maya Mountain Research Farm is a working demonstration farm and registered NGO that promotes sustainable agriculture, appropriate technology and food security using permaculture principles and applied biodiversity. With over 28 years of organic management and conversion from an abandoned citrus and cattle farm to a biologically diverse polyculture, MMRF is one of Central Americas oldest permaculture farms. Students who attend this course get a chance to learn permaculture in a venue that is the product of decades worth of permaculture design work.

During the class, you will integrate what you are learning by walking through an established 30 year old food forest.  The river is crystal clear and perfect for swimming.  All food comes from the watershed of the site.  The teachers offer a diversity of experience in many climates throughout the world.

Cost: USD1500/B$3000 if paid after January 15, 2018.  

Early bird discount:  USD1250/B$2500 if paid by January 15, 2018
