    We are a hosting center, field station and organic farm in the Maya Mountains in Belize. We specialize in field biology and tropical conservation, alternative lifestyles (yoga, healthy eating, etc.), and organic farm projects. We are dedicated to the conservation of Belize’s natural and cultural heritage through scientific research, education, local capacity building, and community programming.

    On the farm end of things we aim to become a leading experimental organic farm in Belize. Our other goal is to feed the station with as many our own projdcts as we can, farm to table. demonstrating how organic farming using a variety of methods including permaculture concepts can work in the tropics.

    We are a registered not-for-profit society that operates a tourism facility located in the rainforest of Belize.
