Returning to the Roots is 1 of 3 sustainability projects with indigenous communities that The 2013 Earth Odyssey Caravan completed all around Lake Atitlan, Guatemala. After 2 months on the road through Mexico and Guatemala, Project Nuevo Mundo`s Earth Odyssey in collaboration with JUSTA and 22 permaculture specialists landed for 2 months in Guatemala to break off into 3 teams and complete 3 projects.

A natural dye and medicinal garden, rocket-stove and rain water catchment system were installed at Kamajachel Women`s Artisan Cooperative in Panajachel, Lake Atitlan. Now, the indigenous women are practicing the art of natural dyeing for their incredible textiles while using the space as a sustainability learning and demonstration center for students and tours!
