    This project is a small hospitality business surrounded by a food forest and permaculture project.

    My name is francois, i'm 29 year old originally from belgium. i just bought in december 2014 a 1,3 hectare bordering a river in the Osa peninsula! In a village called dos brazos de rio tigre, a hundred meter from the entrance trail of the corcovado national park.

    I'm creating a small farm and a hostel so i can have people passing by to learn or teach new stuff on living more sustainably.

    This project as been my ideal for many years and it is finally becoming a reallity. So come and share it with me :-)

    I'm slowly but surely building up the food forest. The hostel is ready and host guests.
    so the main tasks are working on the building up the farm/garden, different types of projects (stone path, checking on the baby trees, take care of the nursery,) the second part of the help is the hostel part. It is as important as the farm part, it involves keeping the the common area spotless, empting and cleaning the dry toilets, being friendly and respectful of guests (they are the guests).

    Im also very interested to learn yoga. if you are teacher and you want to learn how to start a permaculture project in the jungle and you dont mind to share your knowledge about yoga, lease contact me :-)
