CURRENT PROJECTS... 

working towards sustainability

We have several projects underway at Hidden Valley Farm that you can learn about here:

Huglekultur

Garden beds incorporate a design called huglekultur that involve digging down into the soil to form trenches that are filled with logs, cardboard, organic waste, manure to make a highly productive garden with low maintenance.

Aquaculture

Rain water catchment combined with harvested water is used in the ponds to produce tilapia for the kitchen and then nutrient rich run off from these ponds is used to water our small coffee plantation that in a few years will produce tasty coffee!

Rainwater Catchment

Rain water is collected from the roofs of the hotel buildings and channeled to a waterway that provides a habitat for amphibians and fish.  Passing through a natural filtration sysetem the water is used for the flush toilets and also collected for tilapia ponds and herb gardens.  

Grey water

Our grey water management project collects 1000 gallons a day when the hotel is full from our showers, laundry, kitchens, and guest sinks. Through a series of natural filtration beds this water is used to produce food for our café.

All compost and organic waste produced by the hotel is gathered in this area and rotated through different stages to produce rich organic soil for our gardens.  We use vermaculture and fermented compost tea to make liquid fertilizers for our coffee plants and baby fruit trees.
