Organic Gardening -
Potential Economic Alternatives -
Waste Reduction and Recycling -
By growing a variety of vegetables and fruits organically we are
continuing the methods of our ancestors.
We hope to demonstrate the benefits of the old ways along with new ideas
like permaculture to the people around us, and our visitors. We gift
the produce to the families in our social project 'Foundation
for Tzutujil children', and eat
the rest ourselves. If in the future we have an excess, sale
proceeds will be used to support the Bio-Cultura project.
We are caring for our world by reducing the use of synthetic sprays and
soluble fertilizers, and can potentially improve local diets with the
food we grow. We hope to inspire others in our village to do the same.
