  • Description


    We are a working, organic permaculture farm in Costa Rica. We make medicinal teas and grow organic single origin cacao. Our products are sold at Farmers Markets in the area and everything is hand produced and processed.

    A lot of love and time go into making our products and we ask that our volunteers have a deep connection and respect for the earth and her medicine. We require a minimum of 3 weeks stay.

    The farm is removed from tourism but is only 1/2 hour away from some of the most gorgeous beaches in Costa Rica. There is bus transportation three times per day to get to the beach. We are also only 20 minutes away from La Cangreje National Park for hiking. Transportation is mostly by bus throughout the country.
