We will be having our upcoming 9th Annual Permaculture Design Course in San Pedro Columbia, Toledo, Belize from the 10th through the 22nd of February, 2014. We would love to have you here for this event. This is a certificate course that follows the standard established 72 hour curriculum. This years teachers will be Albert Bates, Marisha Auerbach, Nicole Foss and myself, Christopher Nesbitt. The course costs USD1250, and that covers all food and lodging, field trips (with the exception of fees to National Parks or Archeological sites) and material for the course. You can read bios of the teachers at our web site, https://www.mmrfbz.org/_9th_Annual_Permaculture_Design_Course.html or read more about the farm at www.facebook.com/MayaMountainResearchFarm For each three international students, we are able to provide a scholarship to local students. The venue of Maya Mountain Research Farm is one of Central Americas oldest permaculture farms, a former cattle and citrus farm that, over a period of the last 25 years, has been rehabilitated into a lush tropical food forest. Accommodations are simple, but clean, with photovoltaic powered lights in every room. It is truly a wonderful place to learn about permaculture, whether you are new to permaculture or have several design courses under your belt. This is a good opportunity to see permaculture principles and practices as MMRF is the result of thought, design work and decades of work. If you have questions, please feel free to write me, or call 001-501-630-4386. We hope to see you here.
