Permaculture Gardening is about growing symbiotic, sustainable, organic foods and botanicals. And the majority grown here has medicinal and health benefits. Volunteers occasionally participate in harvesting cacao, composting, creating new gardens, and reaping the benefits of our permaculture fruit harvests.
We have Cayucos:
Experience a peaceful travel as it has been for thousands of years from an entirely manmade dugout canoe. The cayuco is an indigenous work of art carved from a tree trunk. See the flora and fauna from a different point of view-ocean life such as coral reefs, mangrove estuaries, shore life, sea birds, parrots, herons, possibly dolphins, and etc. Stop for a swim, hike, and take a picnic lunch. Bird watching groups will love getting up close to the sea birds,listening to the calls of the Montezuma Oropendula, squawking wild Loro Verde parrots over head, and the Great Potoo. We also have a paddle boat which is great fun for kids of all ages.
