Det skal I lave
Practice the ancient art of plant propagation as you magically clone trees with your own two hands. Join Scott Gallant in the rural community of Mastatal, where we will will tour the farm and campus at Rancho Mastatal; one of Central America's premier sustainability education centers. We will sample the tastes and smells of in season tropical fruits, such as lemondrop mangosteen, cinnamon, jackfruit, and more while discussing the history and theory behind plant propagation. Then students will get their hands dirty as we propagate cuttings, air layer mature trees, and learn to successfully graft young fruit trees. The goal of this experience is for all students to have ample time to practice this skill. After the experience students will have the chance to take a short, non-guided waterfall excursion and visit our neighboring chocolate farm, La Iguana Chocolate.
I am a permaculture designer and agroforestry specialist who has been living and working in Central America for a decade. I manage the farm at Rancho Mastatal and run a professional design/consultation business called Porvenir Design. I love growing my own food and believe that tree crops (food grown from trees) should be a larger part of our diet for environmental reasons. I love watching seeds germinate and visioning how they will feed people in the future.
