Hard work and vigilance has turned our dormant compost banana circle into a thriving microbial habitat. With the help of our two interns, Melissa and Jenna we recently constructed *a 12ft high 30ft diameter greenhouse which houses our food triangle and new seedlings. The Mauser EcoHouse is a work in progress. We are motivated by our desire to be of service to our local community and in some small way, contribute to the greater good. Your stay here will include: *a tour of the property's sustainable features, including *medicinal and tropical plants, by our on-site Foundation Director, Heather.
