STUDY PERMACULTURE and natural building IN LAKE ATITLAN
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 Intro to Permaculture Courses almost every month, as well as Natural Building Courses and Permaculture Design Certification.
OUR NEXT PDC
Join us for a beautiful 5-day retreat focused on yoga, breathwork, meditation and movement! Led by Andrew Burrows and Stella Artuso and hosted by the Bambu Guest House and Atitlan Organics, this retreat focuses on connecting and aligning ourselves with the 5 elements of Air, Earth, Fire, Water and Ether.
FROM OUR BLOG
Last week we looked at root division, so today we'll take a look at plant division to really highlight the difference between these two similar-sounding methods of plant propagation.
Greetings! We're excited to bring you a new kind of blog post, one where we catch up with some of our past volunteers and course participants and share what they've been up to since their time with us. We've been honored to host many amazing, inspiring, and inspired people over the years and lots of them have gone on to form businesses, projects, and social enterprises using their knowledge of permaculture.
Today we're taking a second look at root division, this time with the perennially-loved (see what I did there?) comfrey.
