Tropical Regeneration is a permaculture project empowering people to go back to their roots, grow a garden, and protect this earth. “Permaculture is the art of healing nature.” We no longer can just be sustainable. We need to reconnect nature with humanity. Tropical Regeneration is about finding solutions and taking action. We use permaculture and start local, in our own backyards, with neighbors, teaching each other and empowering our community. Alan Cacao and Jean Louise co-founded this project to live out their dream.
Alan Cacao helps people from the western world bridge the gap between their experiences and the natural world. Alan has studied and worked in permaculture for the last 8 years. His first school being Las Canadas co-op in Mexico, teaching about bamboo. He has been the farm manager at Mystical Yoga Farm in Guatemala and Punta Mona in Costa Rica, as well as many other farms where he has been holding space, hosting ceremonies and teaching workshops.
Alan has planted thousands and thousands of trees, reforesting lands throughout the Americas. Alan loves cacao and has been facilitating cacao ceremonies that connect people back to their hearts. Alan participated in many different temazcal since. his childhood within different tribes and has continued his practice guiding temazcal ceremonies when called.

Jean has experimented on her body, mind, and spirit with soul psychology through 21 day rituals, affirmations, journaling, mantras, vipassana meditation, eating from the garden, cleanses, and cooking. Permaculture was the link that made her world holistic. Her path in life is focused on protecting this earth and culture through the nurturing of seeds.
