Greenhouses, Volunteers, & Vanilla Bean Propagation (Suzanna Leff: Finca Amrta)

Dec 1, 2020

Ever wonder how a vanilla flower is pollinated? Have you ever seen bamboo used as a hanging lettuce bed?

In this video, Suzanna takes us for a tour of her organic homestead, greenhouses, solar food drying room, and shares some insights into her volunteer program and more. Finca Amrta hosts Permaculture Design Courses and sells herbal tea blends, salves, and other garden harvests at local markets.
