    Starting a self-sustaining organic project hard sometimes but also one of the most satisfiying experiences in my life as is also to welcome people from all arround the world wich is a growing fact i like about my life, so i hope you take advantage of that interpersonal exchange between all the people involve when you stay here and also lets keep a comunication clear, direct, respectfull and oportune between all of us please.

    About the Organic Farm and Projects
    In 2016 i came to live here with the intention of discovering how posible is to just be free and survive, in peace, i did not have faith or doubt, just the wish of jumping into an unknown space of land and nature, away from any source of social support.
    Some years ago i lived here in this house and i found peace, and spiritual strength, that i want to develop and share with more people latter, i am not a person who will say i am a chaman, but i like to be aware in that human dimension. And in a close future i want to share that learning with more people who really wants a real change on their existance.

    From January 2017 until June 2021 all of the work was to develope resistant seeds, learning what is needed for farming here in valle azul, and also making this area able to stand over weather change, and also removing rocks from soil to be able to begin farming; as well building has been a whole experience since i just knew few basic things in the begining of this. Main sourse of knowledge for me is people and sometimes internet and books.

    Since July 2021 this place is ready to start the real selfsustainability, and first thing to do is to build a green house, so from 2021foundingproject i hope to get some part the materials to make it real, plus i will look for more seeds.
    Next to the green house i most make my own organic repelents and compost for many the plants in the fields.

    The vision of my project is become a free farm and develop a good relationship with my old and new neigbours, local and internationals, and hopefully build together a functional comunity.

    Selfsutainability, holistic and integral health, abundance of food and water, and access to information and tecnology are some of my goals and i invite people with vision and desire to work on that vision to come and join for few days or even some years.

    In this Organic Farm in the north of Costa Rica, i have planted and/or harvest seasons fruits, roots, and herbs for seasoning and for medicinal tee.
    Chickens are the only farm animal, in the past i had sheep and cows too for milk but it was too much extra work for just me.

    You are welcome to use herbs and seasoning plants, fruits and roots from the farm for free, however as i am not selfsustainable yet you will need to bring your own food from store wich is 500meters the closer one. and also help on saving gas and water amoung other things you will use her.

    Once the plantations are going ok, i will focus on rebuilding this house with will need some urgent fixing like change the roof and paint it and also making 2 rooms for rent on a very cheap price to backpackers and stop needing so much from founding and my mototaxi bussines.

    The main income for us now are
    -Mototaxi and all the rest of motoricicle´s services i give
    -Gardening mainteninance (2clients)
    -Hiking tours with or withoud swwiming natural pool and snaks
    -Recicling and selling second hand stuff
    -Medicinal Tinctures and Oils
    -Founding Donations (Begining thanks to a recent friend and ex-volunteer who opened the profile)
    -Help donations from some friends (volunteers and college pathners)
    -I produce CBD oil and am starting to sell it, completely organic costarrican CBD and THC.
    -Massage Therapy

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    There will be diferent factors in diferent groups of people here, depends on you the experience, i am an very open man, in the way that i talk about anything you want to talk about and i would do anything that is possible to do together as long as nobody get hurts.

    For me, culture is the personality of a country, and be in contact with diferent people add value to my life.
    From this, i can imagine that for you, comming to visit another country its a very valuable experience, so i hope you can relax more while you are in CR and be more open while been in my home so you and i can have a better cultural exchange.

    I like to learn, but also can show you slang costarrican language, take some short trips in moto if happens and share popular agriculture knowledge and also about some medicinal plants, animals and how things work or not work in Costa Rica.

    Besides CR, there is a little of everywhere over here as there is more people from many countries, and also some of them has teach me new things that i still keep and practice.

    If you have or bring games or like to dance i would like to get involve.
