Happy Thanksgiving to those who celebrate this tradition.

The 2015 Great NEWS posts enjoy sharing Healthy Habits and Habitats to better support all aspects of our health and life.  Today’s post is based on my recent visits to Belize to focus on creating an eco community and holistic wellness center. Last Thanksgiving my wife and I went to Belize to look at some land for development and investment. My goal is to peak your interest and entice you to consider Belize as a future travel destination. I plan to build better buildings and homes using Compressed Stabilized Earth Block (CSEB).  Be sure to read previous blog posts on the many advantages of building with this method. Very few people in the US are familiar with the use of earthen building materials to make durable ecominded and sustainable long lasting homes. This post will share some of my favorite discoveries so far in Belize.

This will be a very short blog because after traveling for several weeks and being in Belize until yesterday there has not been enough time to write a full post. Eight days in Belize allowed me to get quire a few important projects done or in motion. Many meetings were needed to design and implement various aspects for the eco community development.

One of the toughtest things we were able to accomplish was clearing a tweleve foot border along the highway to create space for planting the bouganvilla and hibiscus cuttings. The purpose was to clear brush, grass, palmetto and trees that are subject to dry season wildfires. We also set out to plant some attractive local flowering plants. The bouganvilla makes a natural fence and the thorns deter unwanted guests. The hibiscus flowers will also provide the makings for healthy hibiscus sun tea for friends and guests.  We also planted quiet a few hardwood seedlings.
