“Permaculture is the conscious design and maintenance of agriculturally productive ecosystems which have the diversity, stability, and resilience of natural ecosystems. It is the harmonious integration of landscape and people providing their food, energy, shelter and other material and non-material needs in a sustainable way. Without permanent agriculture, there is no possibility of a stable social order.” – Bill Mollison

We invite you to reconnect to your roots.

Permaculture, sustainability and thriving community are the foundations of Harmonia, a developing bilingual ecological education center for adults offering courses and workshops in natural building, water systems, off-grid energy, natural medicine, nutrition, plant and animal identification, commercial gardening, beekeeping, natural art, and so much more. Located on shore of Lago Cocibolca in Cardenas, Nicaragua, Harmonia is 263 acres of jungle, streams, waterfalls, hills, mountains, old growth forest, meadows and beachfront with stunning views of the two volcanoes that make up Isla Ometepe.

We invite you on a learning safari in our beautiful jungle forest to explore, experiment, and experience hands-on the principles of homesteading, permaculture, and eco-village development as an apprentice in the construction of Harmonia. This is your chance to learn all facets of eco-village development and share your vision and gifts in the co-creation of Harmonia.
