  • Descripción


    Open the door to the sound of the forest.
    Our center has hosted more than 300 volunteers since its inception. We have developed a special offering for those searching to live in health, service and abundance.
    We are a group devoted to the rescue and documentation of the vast cultural knowledge before it is lost to the world. We are dedicated to the conservation of native medicinal plants and the natural habitats that support these culturally and ecologically significant species and to inspire and empower others to create medicinal gardens and diversify the guardianship for the health of us as a collective and the greater world around us. We are a Living Library.
    We host tribal elders to teach us how to carry knowledge and pass forward to future generations.

    Due to the type of training needed to be fully activated in this garden, we request direct exchange volunteers begin in the heart of our center. The Kitchen. We are looking for people inspired by the garden to table creation of pure food. As we grow and develop our understandings of one another, other topics can be integrated into the experience. The education given to make helping hands helpful is quite extensive and a great investment on our part. The greatest of teachings are given to those who work and devote themselves to the service of humanity.
    Should you have special talents in ethnobotany, mycology or marketing please apply as such.
    If you are searching for more of an internship opportunity to work directly with entheogens just apply.

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    We seek to involve the public in our study of medicinal plants and to promote an ethic of conservation, land stewardship and respect for traditional ecological knowledge. We host tribal leaders from across the globe to share their culture and knowledge and have oftentimes performed as a bridge to many indigenous nations.

    To mobilize botanical gardens and engage partners in securing plant diversity for the well-being of people and the planet.

    One month is little time. Orientation to the space can take 2 weeks to learn the language of the land.
    This entry level offering is for the person who is excited for the ability to learn and adapt to this environment.
    Through seeing the effects of our actions and altering ourselves to the needs of others as we do with plants, we understand how to create a greater impact in our lives, relationship and communities.
    We have the intention to find more long term people to take part in this unique and sacred task.
    Great to be clear. This is not a holiday location. Working in the Costa Rican sun and jungle rains can be difficult.
    We are adventurers and explorers that know how important one single day can be.

    My Spanish was a gift from the Costa Rican People. I have been teaching in the same patient and understanding way that I was taught. We must pass forward all the gifts we are given.

    Algo más...

    The farm is planted in a beautiful form of permanent agriculture and offers abundance unseen in most places in the world. We are host to many great master plants. Beyond our great devotion to plants, we implore others to join our task to perpetuate and protect the legends each species may hold.
    Much of your time will be investing in the food forest in the creation of pure food, medicine and culinary delights.
