    Our farm is looking for people that want to help out with the starting up of a self sustainable community in the mountains of "La Tigra" . We are located in a remote location surrounded by the Children's Eternal Rainforest , the biggest private reserve in Costa Rica. There is lots of pure nature and amazing wildlife to explore in this area!

    Come to help us on our mountain! We created a natural, simple and peaceful way of living in full harmony with Mother Earth.

    We have strong connection with the local community and attend regularly Agro-Ecology courses in our area. Mostly with local experts and local people that want to learn about organic gardening and a shift towards a healthy, conscious lifestyle! Our farm also regularly opens the doors for organic meetings, workshops , educational tours...

    Visitors with an open mind and a willingness to be inspired and amazed by the natural beauty of all Life around us, will learn new things every moment spent at this magical space!

    Our main focus is providing ourselves and our local community with HEALTHY ORGANIC FOOD, and to have FUN in the process!

    Permaculture and biodynamic farming, with a complete natural and regenerative approach is our way to work towards healthy produce at the farm! Every day we work with nature and try to learn from nature.
    Garden tasks like weeding , planting, digging , chop and drop , spraying organic fertilizers, creating mandala gardens, harvesting , etc... are part of the daily chores on the farm !

    There is also natural building happening on the farm so besides plant lovers we also welcome people with building skills , especially carpenters. We try to use a lot of locally harvested wood , bamboo, etc ... in our homes and cabins.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    PURA VIDA is what Costa Rica stands for and here is a bit of explanation what that means ! And it is also our approach to life at the farm ! So if you feel connected to the following words please do not hesitate to contact us!

    Pura Vida means " Pure Life" : "To live a peaceful, simple, uncluttered life with a deep appreciation for nature, family and friends; a ‘real living’ that reflects happiness, well-being, and satisfaction."
    You are good... so ‘life is good’!

    There is MUCH more magic to explore, also outside our mountain, and all those options, local sights, fun activities can be talked about here at the farm!

    TRANSPORT between La Tigra, the local town, and our mountain space (10 minutes away by car) , can be arranged in advance with our community members that have a car.
    We are happy to pick you up at first day arrival but we also try to limit our driving! So taxi ,buses ,feet must be used too, once you are settled on the mountain and you want to go places.

    Please , NO smoking, No alcohol , just your pure NATURAL being is all we need here. :)
