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.

Please read our listing and note the dates before responding!

No smoking, no drugs, no pets. Couple preferred.

We're planning a trip from ~June 6 to August 1 and are looking for a couple or small family to house-sit and do a few daily chores while we're not on the finca. Feed the chickens, gather eggs, trouble-shoot minor plumbing and mechanical problems for the renters. Sounds so simple, doesn't it? MUST speak at least conversational Spanish and English. As we'll be traveling, only housing is offered.

Our finca is a 15 hectare mixed-use farm in the low mountains on the western edge of the Central Plateau. Most of the farm is habitat, with small areas of organic crops...corn, beans, fruits, coffee...and a main house with 3 smaller rental houses. The smaller houses are usually rented to couples planning to have a baby near midwives and hospitals, and graduate students at the nearby University for Peace.

The work is basically helping with day-to-day upkeep o... more inside

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

Hello everyone!

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 primarily an animal rescue, rehab and sanctuary. Our doors are open to animals in need. We currently have 16 rescue dogs, a chicken, a goat, two pigs, a horse and three 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 varieties), guayaba, guanabana, cas, ciamito, lime, coffee and araza. We also put in plant beds with... more inside
