Hello everyone! Does anyone here grow vegetables on their place? My husband and I love our garden in the US and would like to be able to continue that once we move to Roatan in 2 years.
I have attached some pictures. I built to raised beds that are 3 feet high by 4 feet by 8 feet so it is easier on the back and knees. I just started vegetable seeds in pots and within four days the tomatoes came up. The season is 12 months which is great. My wife and I go to Aqua Fit and a lady and her husband gave us a bunch of cuttings and coconut palm trees. You should see their place. They are so generous with their plants.
I would also recommend you join this Facebook group. Roatan Garden Society
I have been following this Aussie since his climate is somewhat similar. You can skip to 4:20 This what I am building. We have been collecting material to fill the beds. Think of it as something the height of your kitchen counter and you go out and pick your vegetables.

Thank you so much! I will check into all of this info. We look forward to following your advice.
There is a fantastic online course on permaculture and a great global community to learn how to garden in any climate in a way that is also great for the planet. Im interested in creating a school to teach this in Roatan as a way to help save the reef and build climate resilient communities in the region. Any connections with like minded others or someone with farmland for sale would be great. Www.geofflawton.com
