The Experience

We are a local Costa Rican family living on a small organic farm. We are in the process of creating a sustainable living by utilizing permaculture techniques, protecting the forest that surrounds us, and participating in our local economy. 10 acres are dedicated to chemical-free agriculture demonstrating functioning agroforestry and permaculture.

He tenido la oportunidad de pasar dos semanas ayudando en Villas Mastatal.

Raquel, Javier y su familia son muy acogedoras, muy buenas personas, me sentí en familia con ellos. Me lo pasé muy bien.
Las instalaciones son estupendas y cómodas. Están cerca al parque nacional La Cangreja donde se puede hacer paseos estupendos.

La jardín es un proyecto bonito, con muchas posibilidades de hacer y aprender. Javier trabaja con mucha ilusión que da motivación adicional a cada día. Me encantaría volver algún momento para ver los avances del jardín y a la familia. Recomendable 100%!!!!
