Restoring Ecosystems, Ancestral Culture & Self-Reliance with Total Benefit Analysis

Green at No Cost tackles poverty – human and ecological – in the Yucatan

About Chan Ká Vergel

Two hours south of Mérida, Yucatan, a working model recreates the permaculture and architecture of the Mayan and adds high-value products for today’s world.

Until now, it was thought that rainforest restoration would take hundreds of years and intense taxation and government intervention.
Chan Ká Vergel uses today’s science and yesterday’s culture to create ground-up wealth from the start, reaching maximum benefit in just 30 years.

A Yucatan family managing 40 hectares (100 acres) would generate $460 thousand US annually and increase land value 10 times within one generation.

Total Benefit Analysis

Green at No Cost maximizes value for workers and investors with succession models that create grassroots green development.

The Yucatan sits in the heart of Central America, the perfect place to blend the cultures of American people.

Similar to Florida, the Yucatan offers coastal, public, environmental, and urban opportunities for investment and development.

Land values respond to these opportunities and light the path forward for grassroots wealth creation for the entire region.

Coastal locations, inland production, and growth all add to wealth that transfers to future generations.

Chan Ká Vergel transfers work and ownership using a 30-year succession plan.

$6.9 million US of revenue pays out to both original and future owners over a 30-year period as ownership transfers from generation to generation.
