LOCATION : 640 acres located 10 miles from Punta Gorda, Belize in the southern part of the country. Unfortunatly, I will be in the USA at my job and will not be accepting guests at this time. Hopefully soon. Large organic farm that I have recently bought in southern Belize. It is 640 acres of approx one third oranges, one third empty fields and one third tropical rain forest. At this time I have a caretaker and I get down as often as possible. My plans are to grow cacao, cashews, vanilla, mangos, pineapples, bamboo, chiles, orchids and a lot of other plants for export.

LOCATION : Near the centre of the seaside village of Hopkins in Belize is our small hotel. This garden was established in 1981 and is a fine and rare collection of tropical flora cultivated along purely organic lines and serves to be the setting for a two-room cabana and a single Garden Room that opens to the lobby and the beach. Help is needed to maintain the watering and repotting of the collection as well as general cleaning and upkeep, propagation, germination, etc. My name is Baron Swann and I have lived here in Hopins by the Sea for over 20 years. As a dedicated gardener I have created a unique garden that has become internationally renown. The accommodation that I may offer is a private room fully furnished with appointments for comfort and repose. It would be my pleasure to host a single male gardener over 40 who has carpentry skills and/or creative skills in pottery, for I make Pots and Jardineers for the collection. Please E- me before arriving in Hopkins Thanks Truly,

Address and description: Located beside the ancient ruins of Lubaantun, across the river Columbia from San Pedro Columbia, about 30 mins from Punta Gorda in Southern Belize.
We are a family with 3 kids, and are just starting out on our Belize adventure. We are planing a large, self-sufficient kitchen garden, a fruit orchard and to raise, sheep, goats and horses and any other wierd and wonderful animals that come along!

Lodging in tents until we build huts, and at the moment a very much "join the family and help out" attitude is what we are looking for. We need to know what you are good at, and how you can help us. We will feed you (unless you are at your best as the cook!) and will be flexible on work / time off. Remember it is the jungle, there are spiders, bugs you have never imagined....and it is HOT! There are also tucans, parrots and butterflies that fly right around you in curiosity! We have built 1 palapa for our kitchen, and are planing more as acomodation Everything grows here, but comunication is slow, so please wait for any reply as we may take some time to get back to you."
