Irma LeBard and or George LeBard
This is the home of George and Irma LeBard. George is from Reno, Nevada. In 1981 he went to Belize as a Peace Corps Volunteer and later worked on Peace Corps Belize staff. In 1984 he met and married Irma Novelo together they built their home in the same village Irma was born and raised. You can learn more about George's Peace Corps experience by reading 'A School for Others' a memoir of his time as a Peace Corps Volunteer. During this time George built a school, 'The Belize High School of Agriculture' for young people not able to access traditional educational opportunities. When George and Irma are not in Belize they are visiting their children (3 sons) who live in the Lake Tahoe/Carson City area.
Yo Creek village is where Irma was born and raised and where her extended family lives. We chose to build our home in Yo Creek because we value village life. The Mayan culture is still alive here and with it a tremendous regard for family and the environment.
Yo Creek is unique because it has the benefits of village life but also offers the comforts of modern living. It has running water, electricity and reliable transportation. If you're someone who wants to get off the beaten path and experience another culture this is the place for you. The back yard has orange trees, coconut trees, and other tropical fruit trees for your pleasure. From the veranda upstairs you can see Mexico (Yucatan Penisula) since we're right on the border. Nothing in Belize is too far away and many of the ruins and eco-tourist sites can be accomplished in a day trip. The second largest barrier reef in the world is a one hour drive and 45 minute ride by water taxi. Chetumal, the capital of Quintana Roo is a one hour drive and is the gateway to the Mayan Rivera.
