  • Description


    We are a family of four living in Costa Rica. I have three children, my son is 7 and my daughters are 4&6. We live on Lake Arenal in the beautiful, lush rainforest. The property has a detached apartment with its own full kitchen.
    I am looking for help around the home and gardens and with guiding my children through learning and play.

    I would like to create a fully functioning organic garden and properly tend to the orchard and grounds.
    My children are homeschooled sometimes with the help of a teacher but I am always open to more help with the kids, and their schooling.
