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.

Committed to the health and well being of the planet, I am investing my energies into the residents of this small pueblo, which is now my home. My children are grown & living abroad but practice & promote sustainable lifestyles which they learned from their mom growing up in Costa Rica. Now I have the time to share this knowledge with this special community, far off the beaten path. The most immediate need will be during July 2019 when the students will be on their 3 week vacation. Although I believe that children need free time, I am offering an alternative to the TV, video games and cell phones. We will be running a free summer camp with arts, song, dance & games within the context of a structured eco-camp being implemented around Costa Rica. Fluent Spanish is not necessary but obviously some spanish language skills will be helpful. If you love children or would like an informal opportunity to teach & guide children, this may be just for you! After camp I will be looking for volun... more inside

Hello, my name is Ricardo and I began this Sea Turtle Conservation Project almost 20 years ago in the Rio Claro Wildlife Refuge in the Osa Pensinsula, Costa Rica. Our not for profit project protects thousands of Sea Turtle eggs along our coastline every year and ensures that the newly hatched babies make it to the sea. I am looking for help to keep the project running successfully. I came to this place 45 years ago to surf with a friend in a time when there was absolutely nothing but nature and a few farmers. A worked for a Biological Station where I learned with some biologists to be a naturalist ... 20 years ago I felt motivated by the conservation of sea turtles since I found an exaggerated depredation towards this species from human poaching and animal hunting.
Our project is amongst jungle on the beach in the middle of nature and is secluded from the busy touristic areas. Our project is in a remote part of the Osa Peninsular only reachable by boat or quad. It is truly a n... more inside
