Latest News from the Retreat

Current Project

We are currently working on a project to create a Tree Trail around the gardens and have been identifying trees with the help of local friend Christina and a team from Shipstern Conservation (Corozal Sustainable Future Initiative). Henry Martinez is a botanist in Switzerland who was in Belize to give some assistance to Shipstern and he and his 2 colleagues, Ermilio and Eduard spent a whole day with us a couple of months ago confirming the trees we had identified and identifying the ones we did not know.

Next step is to make labels to mark the trees and then people will be able to walk the trail and see the huge diversity available in a very small area.
