We hope you are having a wonderful course.  We are putting our permaculture principles to work on our new home in the Santa Cruz mountains.  Sending you all big hugs...

Yes Marco.... do post pictures and challenges.  I would be fun for all of us to brainstorm it with you.  

How is everyone else faring? How is your integration back into 'the real world' going?  Any changes in your life?  

Becky and I are still recounting good times with all of you.

Hi guys, writing you from down here on Lake Aititlan in Guatemala! The property is really neat, but definitely poses some serious challenges. I'm thinking about posting a "discussion" to present some of the design elements along with pics so everyone can leave some input. Some of the stuff I have planned:



-moving water UP the hillside

-increasing yield/possible local plant guilds

-increasing greywater storage/subsurface sand catchment

-greywater treatment options(vertical, horizontal, reeds, etc)


-rocketstove water heater

-geodesic dome

If I make a discussion, I'll be sure to update as progress on projects continues and post pictures. Hope everyone is well! Much love :)
