Part Dos: S.C.D.


We took another week to learn even more about sustainable community development (SCD, as we call it), for it is no simple topic. This time around we had the help of Dr. Dave Unander. Some of the focuses of the week included tropical crops and sustainable agriculture. We gleaned much knowledge from our friend and local farmer, Santiago.

What is the most sustainable way to raise goats?

We also found time for a visit to Chaa Creek eco-lodge for a look at other forms of development in Belize. Co-founder Mick Fleming enjoyed showing us around his organic farm, including the productive compost areas.

A little bit of vermiculture

In the words of Dave, learning definitely happened this week!
