Sustainable Living IN the Rainforest

We are not inside looking out, we are all...inside.

We are not inside looking out, we are all...inside.

Sustainable living IN the Rainforest is about awareness of how all the  “Living Others” feel about how things  are going. We may want more sunshine but is that best for everyone concerned, trees, crabs, agoutis, birds, seeds, streams. They all have their opinion and it is to be honored.

Hello from Rainforest Mushrooms in Dominica

We have been growing mushrooms in Dominica as a model farm showing sustainable living and farming in the buffer zone of the World Heritage Site Morne Tois Pitons for the past 20 years.  Our farm tour shows the  complete mushroom growing proces, spawn laboratory and explains the symbiotic spiritual relationship we have with the forest. We  have three  artists  in residence creating fine art  and inspirational paintings, calabash and wood carvings, art wear.  World famous  musician and poet Brother Matthew Luke creates indigenous musical instruments, incense and essential herbal oils and medicine. We want to invite you to visit our home, family owned and operated farm, boutique and art studio. It would be fun to communicate with other organic farmers especiallymushroom growers.
