Finca Agroecologica La Flor
The farm seeks to bring consciousness about human and environmental challenges and provides educational programs to share its values with volunteers worldwide!
Finca Agroecologica La Flor is a beautiful project located in a peaceful village surrounded by nature and managed by the non-profit organization ASODECAH (Association for the Development of Human and Environmental Consciousness). Just as its name emphasizes it, the farm is trying to complement the country's environmental education and wants to strengthen the bounds between society and environment.
The main mission and goal of the farm is to grow a seed of consciousness in every kind mind and heart that is entering the place, by sharing its values and knowledge about sustainable development and organic agriculture as well as creating rewarding human experiences to connect multicultural souls.
With over 20 years of experience in organic farming, reforestation, animal care and education, the farm has welcomed groups and individuals from all around the world since the project started.
Several programs emerged from the will of sharing and expanding awareness regarding human, animal and environmental issues :
~ Volunteer at the farm : It means helping the project to improve, supporting local economy, learning a sustainable and eco-friendly way of life, having access to 13 hectares of breathtaking nature, interacting with an eclectic multicultural group of people living, working or staying at the farm just like you. It means creating good memories, meeting great people and grow through the experience.
~ Take language classes at the farm : We mainly offer Spanish classes to help foreigners integrate the local culture and being able to communicate, but we can also teach English and French for locals or foreigners who would like to open up their scope of possibilities. Tourism being a huge part of Costa Rican economy, it is a plus to be able to speak several languages as a volunteer if you want to work with locals or in places related to tourism)
~ Relax and revitalize through a yoga retreat at the farm : Come and let your body express itself in our beautiful yoga studio. It's the perfect place to purify your body, mind and spirit, to go deep within yourself, to get away from the negative waves and breathe the fresh air of Costa Rica. Our yoga instructor living onsite will be happy to share his experience about yoga with you and everyone at the farm will help you spend an unforgettable time here !
~ Enjoy the surroundings and escape time by booking a cabin at the farm : Treat yourself with a vacation on an agroecological farm, relax and enjoy the quietness of the place, taste the delicious vegetarian meals prepared with love by our favorite local cooks, take a walk in our forest, scratch the horses and goats or simply relax at the yoga studio and take a moment to appreciate the view from the balcony.
