  • Description


    Come grow with us! This is our third year working towards self-sustainability on a a 7.5 acre vegan property... We have our own water source, installed solar, planted hundreds of fruit trees, and are focused on organic farming, as well as eco construction and living. Fresh papayas, coconuts, and variety of bananas are a staple on the property with new fruits to harvest depending on the season.

    We are located 10 minutes between popular Guiones/Nosara, known for Yoga, Surfing, and tennis and Ostional, a magical little town where thousands of sea turtles come to lay their eggs and world class surf.
    ...nightly fire..

    Friendly wild animals such as howler monkeys, pizotes, and raccoons live with us in harmony on the property.

    Accommodations in the private workaway house and vegan food in exchange for $5 / day and 5/hrs of work/day

    Pura Vida!
