Eco-Agriculture projects are located high in the cloud forest, surrounded by the natural beauty of the mountains and near the famous cloud forest of Monteverde. Volunteers work directly with a coffee-farming community to support the families in their daily activities. This includes all aspects of the coffee growing process from planting to roasting, and sometimes working with the final product. Activities may vary depending on the season, as coffee harvesting is from December until early February​, but there is plenty of interesting work to do all year round.

Volunteers at Eco-Agriculture projects may be asked to:

  • Harvest and process coffee beans
  • Tend to the coffee tree nursery
  • Plant and prune coffee trees
  • Package and market the coffee
  • Assist with reforestation projects
  • Support supplemental agriculture projects

Participants are always supported by Maximo Nivel’s in-country coordinators but they are not on site at the project. Volunteers work directly with the Spanish-speaking project director and his or her assistants.

The program begins with 1-2 days in San José where volunteers receive an orientation and information about their trip to the project site. At the project site volunteers are housed with one of six families that we work with among the 26 that live on this particular land. These families have comfortable accommodations that include warm showers. Access to ATMs, grocery stores and other common conveniences will require a 15-20 minute taxi ride. 

Tagesablauf

Working hours vary according to the needs of the project, but volunteers can expect to work 4-6 hours per day, Monday to Friday, in the morning or in the afternoon. If there is additional need for assistance volunteers may work on Saturdays and/or Sundays.

Freizeitaktivitäten

During their free time volunteers can find plenty of outdoor and adventure activities to take part in including hiking, ATV tours, ziplining, and bungee jumping. Within San José, they can take a city tour, see shows at the National Theatre, visit the central market, and go zip-lining. Our local staff also posts a monthly events calendar to let them know of the activities going on around the InstituteOutside of San José, they can hike up volcanoes, go whitewater rafting, and take a trip to the Pacific or Caribbean coasts. There are so many options and our staff is well-acquainted with the area to help advise on the must-see places. Tours and trips can also be easily booked through our on-site travel partner.
