  • Description



    ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ท no visa needed for you to enter
    costa rica for the first 90 days.

    We are creating a new permaculture farm in San Vito Costa Rica, which is all about love, doing good and exercising as much as possible by practising kung fu, yoga, dancing and what other beautiful arts our volunteers teach.

    The farm is set up to help you learn to share, by being more independent by cooking for yourself and eating healthy, exercising, meditating, cleaning for yourself and growing your own farm food.

    This farm was started by Giovanni an Italian born in Australia and his friend Ariel a Mexican from New York , they met in China years ago at one of China's best martial arts schools and they both share a passion for kung fu!

    We have free coconuts ๐ŸŒด all year and depending on the season different free fruits ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‰๐Ÿand veggies.

    ๐Ÿ” We have chickens that lay free eggs daily to share!

    We have lots of cows ๐Ÿฎ and coffee trees around the farm.

    Saturday nights we have a potluck dinner with different themes and everyone makes a plate of food to share, examples Chinese food, Italian, Mexican, Arabic and the list goes on.

    We URGENTLY need people with PERMACULTURE experience to helpout by volunteering to teach about harvesting.

    We need help creating more garden beds of free veggies and fruits enough to feed around 14 people all year!

    We sometimes have free basic Permaculture lessons, basic Spanish lessons, free basic Kung fu and free basic Yoga classes, it all depends on your travel dates. You need to confirm why you are coming to stay with us, to make sure we can help each other.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities


    The farm is located at 2900 feet above sea level and we have many wild colorful birds flying around the house daily and monkeys from time to time.
    It is like living in a zoo.

    It's REALLY an amazing place to sleep with nature, sometimes the house is filled with clouds as we are so high up in the mountains.

    Learn to meditate and grow your own food. Eat coconuts and see how much fun farm life can be!

    ๐ŸŒฟThank you!!!!๐ŸŒฑ
