Welcome to Carmelita Gardens

Santa Familia Village, Cayo District, Belize

A New Ruralist Community on the Historic Belize River

Surrounded by the verdant tropical rain-forests, the majestic Maya Mountains and the fertile Belize River Valley, Carmelita Gardens is ideally situated for a new Agrarian Urbanism community. We are located a seeds throw away from the quaint and welcoming village of Santa Familia, Cayo. The principles of Agrarian Urbanism are resonating with people looking for an alternative to the rat race. The ability to independently generate electricity from the sun and produce a sustainable amount of food from a garden at affordable prices is finally here. For years the intrepid few have lived off-the-grid in remote locations, but now it is a mainstream reality. Inspired by the increasing demand for energy independence, food security and community stability, Carmelita Gardens is designed to combine new technologies, traditional gardening and classical design into a cohesive community of independent homes. Carmelita Gardens truly is a place we can be “Independent, Together”.
