STUDY PERMACULTURE IN LAKE ATITLAN GUATEMALA

Atitlan Organics is located in the small Mayan village of Tzununa, which is located on the north shore of Lake Atitlan, Guatemala. Founded in 2010, we have focused on building and maintaining a fully-functioning, profitable, organic, permaculture farm. Today, our farm is host to an enormous amount of diversity, including dairy goats, pigs, chickens, vegetables, coffee, bees, and well over 200 useful plant species. Over the past few years, the farm has also begun to host various human activities. We now offer Permaculture Courses almost every month, as well as Natural Building Courses and Permaculture Apprenticeships. We are proud to provide healthy food to our families, friends, community, and international visitors, all while we regenerate the land that sustains us.

 

Become a true ninja farmer

Apprentices are fully integrated into the day-to-day functioning of the farm. After completing the weeklong Permaculture Workshop (included in the Apprenticeship Package), apprentices are up at the farm 6 mornings per week to milk goats, care for chickens and goats, harvest vegetables, and carry on current jobs. There is an apprentice vegetable garden and two meals a day are harvested, prepared and eaten on the farm. There are weekly reading assignments with discussion groups, and a weekly lecture series. This is a true immersion program and we only accept 4 apprentices each more.
