Agritourism: Loving the land!

Hedonisia’s property consists of¬†4 acres¬†of lush eco-community jungle gardens. We created¬†a garden system of gardens that¬†are maintained by interns, fair-trade volunteers, and weekly or monthly¬†guests. The jungle grows fast, and our biggest job is simply to¬†keep the gardens from being overgrown!

Our farming model is to mimic Mother Nature. We find the plants that like to grow in our volcanic rainforest environment so much that they will grow like a weed with minimal maintenance! It allows us to grow many edibles on the property without the need for energy-intensive labor as with traditional farming.

As part of our agricultural tourism program, we have devised a unique classification system by dividing our property into 26 ‘gardens’ of edible or decorative plants. This gives us¬†a very efficient way to utilize¬†eco-tourist volunteer labor as well as offering an intuitive way for Guests to easily find and harvest edible¬†plants and fruits on the property.

Tropical Fruit Trees on Property:

We are more of a¬†tree farming community. With eco-tourists who only stay for a short time, we¬†simply don’t have the continual labor to do ‘normal’ farming. Trees need a lot of attention in the beginning but once they start growing up they do their thing. A perfect symbol for a ‘community of individuals’!
