La experiencia

We need help setting up our agro-ecological farm, planting beds and boxes, composting, producing fertilizers and repellents, caring for gardens and trees, and growing organic food using permaculture and hydroponics. We also need help building infrastructure, furniture, platforms and trails, and even a natural swimming pool! Volunteers stay in a purpose-built station, work for 5 hours per day and can use any of the facilities at the property.

Programa detallado

Finca Ganadito is an ecological farm community and yoga retreat under construction - a tropical playground with houses, cabins and platforms, farm-to-table food and a ton of cool features. We are Rebe (Costa Rica) and Rob (UK) and we are the founders of the community and live permanently on-site.

We're trying to create a sustainable social enterprise and a low-carbon, ecological life space fit for the 21st century, combining everything we've learned from traveling to over 50 countries and working in several sectors. We'd like to invite others to share that journey with us, learn from each other, and spread the word of how to live in harmony with the planet. We're looking for experienced people with serious skills to offer. In return, we'll make your experience in Drake Bay unforgettable, unique and authentic.
