We are a local Costa Rican family living on a small organic farm. We are in the process of creating a sustainable living susituation by utilizing permaculture techniques, protecting the forrest that surrounds us, and participating in our local economy.

10 acres are dedicated to chemical-free agriculture demonstrating functioning agroforestry and permaculture. Water is plentiful here, thanks to abundant rainfall and the waterfalls of the property. The soil is diverse while rich in minerals is also fairly acidic.
Over the past several years, we are recovering this soil by regularly hand tilling the earth and fertilizing with rich compost produced onsite, including companion plants, and a mixture we make from microorganisms gathered in the forest. We are beyond organic; we are chemical free.Our dedication to chemical-free agriculture extends to our fruits and vegetables.The seeds give birth to a wide variety of vegetables, fruits, spices and medicinal plants. and more.

We are located right at the border of Corcovado National Park in the Osa peninsula of Costa Rica. It is a 61 hectare, 150 acre property, in the Golfo Dulce forest reserve. We've created an extensive, self-guided trail system, that you are encouraged to enjoy as you wish. We offer the opportunity to stay right in the rainforest. If you want to be immersed in nature, this is the place to do it! The lodge itself is 1/2 hour away from the small town of Dos Brazos de Rio Tigre.
We, Ron and Val, have owned the property for 13 years, and have been running the hostel for the past 10. The inspiration came during our own travels through Central America. We searched for places like this, where we could stay overnight as close as possible to nature, but couldn't find it. So, basically we decided to create our own slice of paradise. Ron spends most of his time up at the hostel, and val is generally stationed at the office.

Animal Rescue & Sanctuary and Organic Vegan Farm in Central Costa Rica

Hello everyone!

Important note: our program is full until September - we are only accepting applicants for September through spring 2019.

What we do: We take care of animals, we grow organic food, we prepare and eat tasty vegan meals, we minimize our impact on the earth, and we enjoy the company of our Costa Rican friends and neighbors. We have run a volunteer program for over 7 years, and have had several hundred people come to work with us!

Our farm is an animal rescue, rehab and sanctuary. Our doors are open to animals in need. We currently have 10 rescue dogs, 3 chickens, a goat, two pigs, a horse and two cats. Some came off the streets, some were abandoned, others were injured and no longer wanted. We adopt out what we can, but most are “lifers” on the farm.

The property (roughly 3.5 hectares) is covered with many tropical fruit trees, including water apple, mandarin orange, banana (many vari... more inside
