The Mesoamerican Permaculture Institute (IMAP) aims to improve the overall wellbeing of the peoples of Mesoamerica. We work to promote food sovereignty, biodiversity protection, agroecological education, and the empowerment of small campesino farmers.
Our team has been made up of and directed by Maya Kaqchiquel permaculturists since its foundation in 2000, and supported by national and international professionals, students, and incredible volunteers!
