Tres Besos Homestead

Vacation Rentals, Fermented Foods, Permaculture Design, Chinese Medicine….

What we do…
“lines in the sand” most drawn by “rich” white men

Diane & Larry are the current stewards and care-givers, of the one acre food forest we call Tres Besos

…we offer two (2) “vacation” rentals and diet education while enjoying 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.

Gastronomia
Smoothie/Cocktail Hr

Fermented food is one of our passions: We make our own salsas, kombucha, tepache, sauerkraut & some bread”. People generally eat more fermented foods than they realize:

  • bread
  • alcohol
  • sauerkraut
  • real mayonnaise (not brand)
  • cheese, kefir, kombucha
  • yogurt, relishes, chutney
  • Worcestershire, ketchup, soy sauce, miso, tempeh … not Pickles, etc.; “pickled”= vinegar.
Education
Diversity = Unity Our own PCD Symbol

Permaculture Design (PCD), humane ideals & Chinese Medicine (includes pre-med western science) inform our holistic outlook on Life.

Diane: BS in Psychology & Biology, Master TCM (MTCM).

Larry: BS Solar Design, MTCM, Certified Permaculture Design

Our ongoing education is facilitated by community radio and our own follow up studies & research.

We encourage everyone to listen to & become a supporting member of local community radio &/or Pacifica, KPFA, 94.1 FM, – Berkeley, CA founded 1949
