    Hi my name is William, I've lived in Costa Rica for the last 7 years. I love nature, gardening, surfing & playing music. Previously owned a bar and restaurant in Nosara. Now Iam working full time on our premaculture project in Rinco De La Vieja. Farming at times can be hard work but its very fulfilling & keeps you in great shape!
    Cheers, WIlliam Freeman

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    Travelers will benefit from this cultural exchange by being emerged in the heart of Costa Rican nature & jungles. A true test of man forging a eco friendly path in the wilderness. You'll gain an greater understanding of how to work with the land to yield a harvest. You will walk the same trails that indigenous natives walk for hundreds if not thousands of years. You'll be immersed in Costa Rican culture, food, and language.

    Thanks for you interest in volunteering at our farm. Let me give you a little background on our project. Our finca has been in our family for about 20 years. Over the last 5 years we have started to build cabinas and a little dinning rancho on the farm. This year we have begun heavily planting fruit trees like advacado, mango, guanabana, cashue, lime, coffee. Some of the trees bear fruit others our a couple years away. We have also begun our premaculture program with many different veggies in our garden beds.
    The work day is 4-5 hours depending on the rain and the projects at hand. We generally work threw the week and have Saturday Sunday off. At the moment some of the biggest needs are, weeding and watering the gardens, cutting the grass (one of the biggest jobs). minor construction projects, painting signs for the trails, cutting new trails, landscaping and feeding the animals and cleaning there stalls. (At the moment we don't have any live stock this is in our future plans but we do have 7 dogs.) I like to work with people strengths so if you have jobs that you like in particular we try and point you in that direction. Meals our generally local types of Costa Rican food such as rice, beans, salad and a protein, pasta, soups, breads and eggs. Very basic but good after a day of work. We try to use what we can from our gardens and trees.
    The Finca itself is over 11o arces and is very secluded surrounded by national park and a few other large farms. There are rivers and a waterfall on the finca. Its has gorgeous views, and a number of trails and animals, like monkeys, butterflys, tucanas, parrots and deer. However, there are also dangerous animals like snakes, spiders, scorpions, mosquitos and even a Jaguar that roams the mountains. On that note while our farm is beautiful there are many add dangers to living on a jungle farm in Costa Rica. Due to our isolation and off the grid nature it might not be for everyone.
    Generally, we rise with the sun and go to the beds after dark. We have running water for cold showers and individual bathrooms. The water is good for drinking very clean coming from the local river though sometimes we need to filter it after heavy rains. We have a solar system for the energy. Internet is g3 so you would need to get a local chip Kolbi for your phone if you want to use the interent.
    We are located on the popular tourist designation of Rinco De La Vieja National Volcano park. We are only a 5 minute drive away from hotwater springs, mudbaths, ziplines, hiking and whitewater rapids. Many of these adventures are privately owned and often there is an entrance fee of around 15 dollars. We are about a 10 minute drive from the start of a 4 hour hike to the volcano summit of Rincon de la Viejo. The closes major town is Liberia about 25 minutes away down the mountain. There are a few local stores in walking distance to the finca but they are a bit pricy.
    Thanks again for your interest looking forward to hearing back from you.

    Volunteer help generally share a room with 2 beds and private bathroom, showers, sink and toilet all run great. However, the water is cool with no heating system. Breakfast generally is an egg with pinto gallo a local tradition of mixing rice and beans. Lunch is generally a Vegitable Soup and sandwich or Pasta dish. Dinner is a "Casado" a local traditional plate consisting of protein, rice, veggies, beans and salad. Vegetarian dishes can be accommodated as we dont eat much meat on the farm and try to use the products in our gardens.
