Workshops

        Located at Centro Educativo Suelo Sano in Escamequita, Nicaragua just minutes outside of San Juan del Sur, we offer several learning experiences for expanding your knowledge of sustainable living.  We will have ongoing workshops of natural building, focusing on cob, earthen floors, tapia, quinche, light clay straw, and bajareque methods.  We also will regularly offer workshops on permaculture techniques for students of varied experience. 

        Overnight accommodations just steps away from Suelo Sano are available at Hostel Lomas del Bosque, but space is limited so make your reservation early.  Stay tuned here for all upcoming workshops!
