  • Description

    Description

    I am a graduated student from Czech Republic living currently in Puerto Rico. I am part of an amazing project of building and running an eco-farm.
    Our main goal is health. That is why we build a complex that will work independently of the surroundings and produce everything we need for a healthy and happy life. We raise animals, grow fruits and vegetables, get energy from natural resources and recycle everything possible. In the future, we only want to eat food from our sources, use cosmetics and medicines we make ourselves. In short, we want to be sure that we do not get anything harmful to our bodies.
    Where are we? In Puerto Rico. Beautiful tropical island belonging to the USA with idyllic beaches around and with rain forest in the middle. Our eco-farm is located an hour from the the capital, San Juan, in the rain forest hills. One of the most beautiful beaches of the island is 10 minutes away by car.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You can learn a lot about life in the tropics and in the farm itself. Location of the farm is very beautiful and inspiring. Its located in a nature with fresh air and the beaches nearby are great for relax, swimming or surfing. So if you like nature you will like it here as much as I do. But downtown is close, so it is easy to socialise here as well. You can learn salsa, practice English, Spanish or Czech language, you can do yoga and meditate with no distractions, you can learn how to make Mofongo and basically you can live as a local.

    There is plenty of things to be helped with - construction (building more space for people and animals), cutting path in the forest, taking care of animals (especially goats), gardening, cooking and many other things. The farm is big and there is a lot of work all around.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    In your free time you are welcome to do anything what your heart desires. We are used to spend afternoons at the beach. There are many beaches for swimming or surfing. There are also nice places for snorkelling and diving. El Yunque National Park is part of the rainforest where the farm is located, so there are many possibilities to hike. If you prefer a city life, there are many bars and restaurants in the town and also there is a live band three times a week. Puerto Rico is not big, so if you want to explore the island, you can get anywhere you want in a short time.
