Quixaya Heart of Water, discover the Mayan permaculture village

This is the incredible story of a small hidden Mayan village in the Guatemalan highlands that transformed a monoculture plantation into a diversified agricultural system that supports the original families that worked the plantation and their descendents. This unique example of regenerative community works with nature to create abundance with the river and natural resources that flow through the land.
