Program Details

After travelling during the last years, I am managing a farm who takes care of the biodiversity and designing a new forest inside the mountains of Central Pacific Coast in Costa Rica. We are creating a sustainable living space by utilizing permaculture techniques, protecting the forest that surrounds us and helping nature to regenerate itself while using renewable energy:).
We are building and helping nature to regenerate the forest while planting trees, our goal is to have a big forest in the near future! We want to be a non-profit organization (NPO) working for the environment.
Our project is about an ecological farm at the very beginning of its construction, we have basic living conditions as we are looking for a sustainable space while planting trees from the zone, on land previously used for livestock, now we are doing everything possible to help nature, building a new habitat.
