IMAP - Instituto Mesoamericano de Permacultura - on Zoom, January 23rd
at 1:30 pm CST.
The Mesoamerican Permaculture Institute (Instituto Mesoamericano de
Permacultura – IMAP) is a non-profit organization based in Guatemala. It
was founded in 2000 by a group of local people concerned by the serious
environmental, social and cultural problems affecting the nation. They
established an ecological education center to promote permaculture
techniques, local biodiversity conservation, production of organic food,
and a seed preservation that strives to reconstruct the Mayan seed
heritage. This seed preservation project includes the Amaranth
Initiative to enhance food sovereignty in Guatemala by promoting the
sustainable cultivation, processing, consumption, and commercialization
More talks and workshops will be announced shortly.
