La Baja, A Magical Land
La Baja A Magical Land Baja California Sur is one of the most diverse natural paradises in Mexico with deserts, beaches, mountain ranges, and lagoons. The good temperatures of its lagoons and seas have made it a sanctuary for gray, humpback and blue whales, also we have been blessed with beautiful waves for surfing. When it comes to the element of water, we have been blessed.
Agriculture in the state is for cyclical crops Autumn-Winter, Spring-Summer, and Perennials. For the cyclical, the vegetative period is less than twelve months and they require a new sowing every cycle. For perennials, their growing period is greater than 12 months. Perennial means that you sow once and they keep coming back every year!
Among the cyclical crops, they are divided into:
- Basic (corn, beans, sorghum, potatoes, wheat)
- Industrial (safflower, chickpea, sunflower)
- Vegetables (chile, tomato, melon, watermelon, onion, squash)
- Organic (basil, tomato, pea, chile, brussel sprouts, all kinds of lettuce, and broccoli just to name a few since in recent years farmers have experimented with all kinds of vegetables.)
- Perennials (asparagus, strawberry, avocado, mango, fig, orange, date, coconuts, papaya, guanabana, lemon, pomegranate, passion fruit, and also many more).
These last two are the reason why Dane, my fiancé, and I have chosen this place as a home for our family.
Our hidden paradise, where we have learned the golden rule:
“I give to receive, and I receive to always give from the heart.”
The time and work that we put into our hidden paradise have given us the most delicious fruits and the richest vegetables to nourish our bodies and our spirit.
We have learned to be thankful for the heart of what our work on our land has given us. It has taught us to be present and appreciate what is important in life: health, unity, love for each other and the most important to live in harmony with nature.
That is why with great pleasure I share my experience in case any of you are looking for that special place where you can live in communion with Pachamama.
Baja can be that place, “our little corner in the world” as my friend Emmy says! A place where we can make all of our dreams come true with the people that we love. Living with the principals of permaculture and surf vibes.
Permaculture is a set of design principles centered on whole system thinking, simulating, or directly utilizing the patterns and resilient features observed in a natural ecosystem. It uses these principles in a growing number of fields from regenerative agriculture, rewilding, and community resilience.
