Trip to Rainforest in Belize!!

[galleryview id=19]

I just returned from my trip to Belize.  We had a great trip and we were able to put up two aquaponics units 33 miles back in the rainforest. Some people call it the end of the world. We set up shop in Punta Gorda. This is a small city of just over 5,000. The people are very humble and kind. Larry and his wife, Karol, let us set up shop in the back of their hotel, the Sea Front Inn. We sent native helpers to get all the parts that were needed and cut out the IBC totes. It was not easy finding the totes, two came from a rain-catch system three stories high and had to be lowered by rope. The second set was taken from a nearby eco home. Sacrifices were made. It took us a day and a half to find materials and cut out the units. We had to go to a dolomite plant to get gravel and they pre-washed and bagged it for us on site. We had 2100 pounds of gravel alone.
