Permaculture Workshop, Guatemala

Summary information

You will work in six groups of four people: two PDC certificate holders and two underprivileged Guatemalans.
Together you will practice various techniques of design and installation.

The objectives of the three-week program are as follows:
- to provide the opportunity to put PDC learnings into practice in a supervised setting in the field
- to share one's knowledge with the locals
- to start the "flying team" programs
- to discover a new culture
- to promote the work of the IMAP that is still little known in the region
- to show how to design a place while respecting nature
- to reapropriate the notion of working together and encourage solidarity (a local custom that tends
to disappear with the western influence)
- to bring support, warmth and hope, to a youth that suffers from violence and racism
- to train local workers who will be aware of the environmental issues concerning their habitat (Atitlán Lake)
