What we do…
Diane & Larry are the current stewards and care-givers, of the one acre food forest we named Tres Besos…
…we offer “vacation” rentals, enjoy gardening, eating & sharing home grown food from the food forest where we live.
Moving to Mexico has helped us realize that borders only serve to separate the common people and benefit the money-hoarders.
Fermented food is one of our passions:
we make our own salsas, kombucha, tepache, sauerkraut & some bread & of course love Mezcal “the wine of Mexico”.
People generally eat more fermented foods than they realize:
- real mayonnaise (not brand)
- cheese, kefir, kombucha
- yogurt, relishes, chutney
- Worcestershire, soy sauce, miso, tempeh … not Pickles, etc.; “pickled”= vinegar.
Permaculture Design (PCD), humane ideals & Chinese Medicine (which includes the pre-med western science) inform a holistic outlook on Life.
Diane: BS in Psychology & Biology, Master TCM (MTCM). Larry: BS Solar Design, MTCM, Certified Permaculture Design Self taught Diet & Economics.
Ongoing education is facilitated by community radio & our own follow up studies & research. We encourage everyone to listen to & become a supporting member of Pacifica, KPFA, 94.1 FM, – Berkeley, CA founded 1949

Eat Whole Foods, mostly vegetables, & not too much.Michael Pollan
Our version: Eat mostly Cooked, Fermented, Vegetable-based, Whole Foods, Some organic meats, organs & broth And not too much per meal.
“Vegetable Based” = plant foods:
- cooked & fermented veggies
- cooked dark leafy greens
- small amounts of fruit
- small amounts of raw food
- some soaked, roasted nuts
- fermented grains & legumes
Our idea of wealth and riches is a living amidst a neighborhood food forest, a loving family, supportive friends and active community made up of worker-owned businesses.
Rural area, close to a small town we can enjoy year round & accommodate friends, family, guests, clients.
- continuous learning and sharing of honest knowledge
- optimal diet = optimal health
- participate in fun outdoor activities.
- Lots of DIY projects
Diane & Larry met in Chinese Medical school in 1994, married & worked together in North Central Washington for 14 years, then moved to Todos Santos in January 2013.
