Help wanted at small developing Permaculture healing community at the waterfalls, near the beach Costa Rica
Here we have here Permaculture intended gardens, mountain rain forests, refreshing waterfalls, an exciting wildlife galore, lots of tourist attractions around and a very open minded village with all you need and want !
We live surrounded by tropical rain forests with toucans, hummingbirds, howler monkeys, tree frogs and much more to discover. We are just across the road from a refreshing waterfall with great swimming pools with other amazing falls just a short hike away, all in walking distance to the beach.
We have many fruit trees including different bananas, mangos, star fruit and water apple, as well as lots of wild edibles and greens on the property.
We invite people to come and co-create our community with part-time work exchange*.
*Most volunteers prefer to give a small contribution in order to work only 4 hours in the heat of the jungle and still enjoy the freshest, healthiest and most delicious food.
We are less a producing entity than a hands-on learning and healing center and have very limited funds, where we depend largely on your voluntarily help and donations*.
Our vision is growing towards sustainability, learning in community and having fun in nature.
We welcome your creative ideas and like to learn from your experience.

We are seeking self-motivated part-time workers* who are flexible, dependable, creative and efficient. Come with the desire to learn and co-create and with a sense of curiosity and an ability to observe, learn, grow and share.
We ask that you come for at least two weeks and prefer that you stay much longer.
Our work exchange program usually starts on Monday and we ask you to arrive on the weekend before. We encourage you to come a couple of days before to enjoy our place as a guest, discover the region, meet the community and find out how things work.
We work on all kinds of tasks in the gardens, in and around the house.
Please bring your own gloves, bug & sun protection, a flashlight and sturdy shoes.
If you are willing, please email at least a couple of weeks before you leave, to see if you can bring some books, seeds, or other supplies we might need and we will order to you or reimburse you for when you arrive.
Thank you for your interest in working together here. We’re looking forward to working with you towards a more sustainable relationship between humans and Mother Earth.
*Part-time workers stay for free and pay partial costs for their meals and much fun without working all day. The cost for your food is $5 a day, your accommodation is free in return of 4 hours of work 5 times a week.
You can bring your own tent for even more privacy, which can be put any where in the gardens including under a roof.
If you require other types of accommodation contact me and maybe we will have something else available for the time you will be here.
We share a beautiful open house with a nice kitchen, a fridge, a washing machine, electricity 110V/220V, internet, phone, cold and hot showers and lot more.
Its a very nice living in a nature setting with ponds and fruit trees covering the property!

Its easy to get here with direct bus from San Jose or the boarder to Panama.
For around $65 we can arrange an airport direct shuttle service to us.
What else ...
we are not operating at the waterfall hostel, you need to go straight ahead at their entrance at the blue water tank and turn left at the next property entrance named EDEN only 150 steps further at the adjacent property, right before the waterfalls left.
please do not enter the hostel if you are not intenting to stay there as their paying guest.
Why does workaway.info allow listings of hosts who charge money?
In developing countries (Where most hosts are involved in charity work or community development) some of our hosts may ask for a small donation to help the host family or charity (often less then 5 dollars per day) Workaway will allow this listing when the donation goes directly to the family or charity and is just to cover the cost of the volunteer's stay. (This will be clearly marked on the host listing).
We will strictly not allow listings posted by agents, “middle men” or projects who we feel are looking to profit from a volunteers stay.

I just wanted to say a big thank you for your loving help and the beautiful time with you.

With Love and Gratitude
The place is a real jewel, in the jungle, close to waterfalls, great people, very quiet usually, not a party hostel. Good for just enjoying the beauty of life. Works include things like cleaning, babysitting, maintainence and/or making
