14th Annual Permaculture Design Course
at Maya Mountain Research Farm,
Toledo District, Southern Belize

Taught by Marisha Auerbach, Rhonda Baird, Christopher Nesbitt,  and Alex Nikesch.

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 26 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.
