Botanical Bhakti, Permaculture Immersion
This internship is a celebration of the botanical world, and a collaborative exploration of Guatemala's indigenous wild edibles, wild medicinals, plant dyes and plant folklore. We will be drawing upon the knowledge of local people and experimenting with plant uses and cultivation. We will be studying the landscape, going on adventurous botanical forays into the mountains and forests and tuning into nature with all our senses.
Using permaculture principles and techniques, together we will grow in the botanical nursery, whilst cultivating a source of plant wisdom for sharing.
This course is suited to those really wishing to deepen their understanding of the plant world and practice permaculture techniques. It's for aspiring gardeners and earth tenders with a desire to understand the relations of soil, plants and animals and work with them.
The Internship Includes
Seed Saving and Collecting
Plant husbandry and Soil Management
Medicinal plants and Folklore
Wild edible plants and common cultivars

In addition to the subjects listed above expect to be helping out in the forest gardens whether it’s tending to the animals, harvesting, planting, building soils or playing around with aquatic systems.
