Organic Gardening -
Potential Economic Alternatives -
Waste Reduction and Recycling -
The government, our schools and churches don't teach us what to do with
new things like plastic and batteries after we use them in order to
care for our world. Our parents don't know that sprays, rubbish dumps
and burning plastic harm our families, the air, water and soil.
At Bio-Cultura we aim to increase the environmental knowledge within our
community so that we are able to make informed choices.
We will offer free classes to children. Through story-telling, art, and
hands-on activities, we aim to restore pride in our Mayan heritage,
increase understanding of the cycles in nature and awareness of
environmental problems, and show how everyone can help address these
'rubbish' at Bio-Cultura nursery.
Using the very popular local radio and television stations, along with
performance arts, we aim to inform our community of environmental
issues, and opportunities to care for our environment.
We plan to hold workshops on topics such as efficient wood-burning
stoves, permaculture methods, recycling and waste reduction etc.....
Our organic gardens and tree nursery will be used to demonstrate ideas
and alternatives to our community. We aim to include other
environmentally friendly concepts at Bio-Cultura, for example,
composting toilets, worm farms etc...
