LEVEL UP AND INCREASE YOUR SKILLS
Here at Atitlan Organics, we think that small-scale food production and localized resource utilization is the wave of the future. We are proud to spread the word of permaculture, nutrient dense food production, local resource utilization and other sustainable practices, as these are the areas where we can effect the most positive change in our lives and communities.
Studying Permaculture and Natural Building at Atitlan Organics is a great way to fast track your understanding of natural systems and how to interact with them. We have built an educational and fully-functional, profitable, and off-the-grid permaculture farm. The systems in place allow visitors and students to experience the theory in real time. Furthermore, there are plenty of undeveloped areas for new experimentation.
