    Description

    We run an off the grid permaculture farm with a growing food forest, vegetable beds, ornamental plants, secondary and primary forest and a few farm animals near Puerto Viejo, Limón. Over 120+ acres, with 70% primary rainforest, creeks and a network of trails.

    It is our desire and intention to blend the mixed characteristics of the land to offer a balance between committed environmental protection, civic education, financial sustainability and permaculture principles. We desire to create an environment and community that optimizes the beauty, magic and power of living in synchronicity with the natural world in a regenerative manner.

    We envision becoming an educational and conservation center that offers unique learning opportunities to equip individuals with knowledge and skills, to support us in our journey of restoring the balance between humans and the natural world.

    We abide by the Permaculture ethics of:
    Earth care
    People care
    Fair Share

    Are you ready for a unique tropical jungle farming experience?

    We are an off-grid, large Permaculture farm on a 120-acre private reserve, of approx 3 years in the process.

    We are looking for volunteers who are genuinely interested in a farming experience and passionate about it. We only host volunteers with experience in permaculture and/or tropical farming and that can stay for at least three months. NO EXCEPTIONS!!!

    We have paid apprenticeship and permaculture immersion programs, and a few sponsored spots that we are willing to offer when we come across a unique candidate.

    All candidates that aspire to become sponsored have to do a one week trial, afterwards we will evaluate the experience and determine if you can become part of our community.

    If you get sponsored to join our farm we will provide you with a place to sleep and food supplies. Volunteers are responsible for cooking their own meals and keeping the house clean and tidy.

    In return, generally speaking we need help with:
    *Gardens: Preparing beds, seedlings, planting, soil preparation, composting, weeding, watering and harvesting, pest control, pruning, transplanting, landscaping, agroforestry.
    *General maintenance: trails, fixings around the farm, construction, wood work and any other sustainable building techniques. As well as taking care of our regenerative systems.
    *Animal care: Feeding them, keeping their areas clean.

    ***Up to 25 hours per week or - opportunity to help more - at your pace - as it is a farm...and there is always something to do ;). Possible to hike in / out to town at any time***
