  • Description


    This project is located in between Perez Zeledon( San Isidro General ) and Playa Dominical on the Pacific side . We are south about 2 miles from Tinamaste in the mountains. You take the mountain road down the valley toward the Diamante 600 ft.Waterfalls. At the 1st bridge you come to go over the bridge and take the driveway to the left. When entering through the gate you take the road to the left.and follow it up a hill and through a wooded area until the 1st intersection. then take the road to the right and follow it to the house.

    We are starting to clear land of jungle brush so we can plant fruit trees , gardens and sites for building air Crete domes and bamboo housing . We plan to build in the coming years, housing for residents and staff along with a 50 person hostel.. We have 14 hectares next to the mountain we wish to develop into a sustainable living community. We need volunteers with multiple skills however starting out we will need hard working machete swinging people with excellent physical conditioning.

    We will supply a tent shelter with kitchen area and outside shower and toilet that will accommodate 6 people with sleeping bags. The space will be divided so there will be individual privacy. We will supply organic food from the farm and greenhouse. All other food you will want you will need to supply on your own from the local market. The program will be 5 hours per day 5 days per week with weekends free. Applicants with carpentry skills or electrical experience and pluming abilities, or per ma culture backgrounds or farming back grounds will get special consideration. We have openings for six people to start this project. We are in a rain forest environment and rubber boots are recommended for working in this area.

    English speaking personal are preferred however Spanish applicants will also qualify. We will need a minimum of two weeks commitment and up to 6 months after which time we can discuss further opportunities. All applicants must produce a valid passport.
