Organic Garden
Retreat: Blancaneaux Lodge
Belize > S. Ignacio


Coppola’s belief is to provide fresh organic quality produce, despite the challenges presented by gardening in the jungle. The head gardener and his staff grow all organic vegetables and fruit at the lodge. Blancaneaux’s elevation and cool evening temperatures make it possible to grow leaf lettuce, radishes, bean, carrots and beets. The gardener and the chef coordinate the daily menu and decide what’s ripe and ready to appear on the menu.
