The 2016 Great NEWS posts continue to enjoy sharing Healthy Habits to promote happiness, health and harmony success suggestions. Today’s post is the fifth one about a new Belize Master Planned Eco Village dedicated to Eco Friendly and Sustainable Living. This information will provide helpful insights for anyone eager to design, build and live the life of their dreams in an eco friendly community committed to long term ecological balance, quality of life and sustainability. My goal for today’s post is to share some final ideas, plans and values for this new eco village being designed in Belize.
Since first touring the property in 2014 and buying it in 2015 we have been learning the lay of the land to create a land plan for our master planned eco village. Six trips in 2015 helped us observe the fauna, flora and flow of the property and surrounding areas. By studying the plants, rain, seasons, soils, sun, terrain and weather it is easier to design, build and live in harmony while creating an environmentally friendly and sustainable eco village.
Christopher Nesbitt reminded me of the importance to identify clear values, variety, vibration, vision and view of the future for optimal land planning. With that process formulating the search for the advisory board and construction and development team begins to guide the path and progress of the project. Great residents, resources and role models are vital to succeed with protecting the earth, ecology and environment. Working together we can educate, enhance and evaluate our master plan for the evolution of our eco friendly community, permaculture, reforestation and wellness center. Combining all this into a cohesive project will be a major accomplishment and labor of love that will benefit many at different levels..
Learning the role that government departments in Belize fulfill and the regulations, people, projects, planning, property, surrounding ecosystems, vegetation and weather is vital for moving forward with creating our master plan. Ongoing recruiting for the advisory board and construction and development team are top priorities. Next comes integrating the various aspects of budgeting, compliance, contracts, construction, deed restrictions, financial guidelines, future residents, funding, infrastructure, property development and utilization, resource management, utilities, waste water systems and water resource planning in order to determine a practical and realistic time line.
We are actively attracting and networking with a wide variety of experts on buildings, construction guidelines and restrictions, drainage, landscaping, excavation, roads, topography, utilities, vegetation, waste management and water resources.
Design Build Live Eco Friendly
Our key 2015 goal was to create a beginning land plan draft and begin planting flowering plants, food trees, hardwood reforestation (mahogany and cedar) and shade trees (mango and sea almonds) during the rainy season to help provide better plant diversity and insure better plant suitability during the dry season. We planted a lot of trees and now we will observe how they grow and respond during the upcoming dry season on the pine ridge soil.
Additional tree plantings in 2016 will include more: coconut, mango, moringa, madre cacao, sea almonds, cedar, mahogany and teak. We will also plant samwood, yemeri, ironwood, nargusta, ceiba and other trees as they become available.
Creating an organic permaculture food forest and reforestation project in harmony with the land and weather will create a more diverse and sustainable environment for a wider variety of species. Awareness of the local ecosystem and observations will help guide future decisions. We are planning and planting an abundance of green spaces to surround the future facilities, homes and lots. People will be wowed by the fantastic flowers, foods and fragrances to delight their taste buds, entice their nostrils and nourish their body, mind and spirit.
We will continue planting a wide variety of diverse seedlings and seeds in 2016 to manifest a magnificent ecosystem that will benefit all organisms in the community together. Our key goal is to design, build and live in our eco friendly community south of Maya Centre Village Belize based on sustainable living. After the electricity is installed we begin construction of the CSEB buildings for bathroom facilities, bed and breakfast, caretaker houses, dining and kitchen, guest houses,washing machine facility and walkways. Using Compressed Stabilized Earth Blocks (CSEB) made with local clay, sand and less than 10% cement or lime appears to be the most economical, eco friendly and efficient building material. The Dwell Earth training in Dallas in 2015 confirmed my initial research that building with this eco friendly material will be the best choice for the long term.
We plan at least eight trips to Belize in 2016 to continue many strategic and synergistic meetings with a wide variety of people and of course more planting. With Christopher Nesbit and Matt Miller on the advisory board we will invest time with them for planning and preparing our strategies to design, build and live in our sustainable lifestyle community.
Our advisory board and construction and development team are being carefully chosen based on proven abilities and desires to collaborate and cooperate to create an amazing master planned eco friendly community and sustainable living lifestyle. If you have the desire, drive and passion we look forward to hearing from you. We are recruiting a terrific team with the right stuff and the energy, health and vitality to create a holistic health habitat focused on making magic moments and a wonderful world of wellness in Belize. Recent additions committed to being part of our team include Richard (Casey) Wilson Gunnery Sergeant retired from United States Marine Corps and Justin Hayes an audio video specialist and permaculture enthusiast from Canada.
