Our volunteers will be fully intigrated into the daily life on our organic farm. Costa Rica is the land that uses the most agro chemicals per square meter worlwide. Most local farmers dont belive they can produce organic food or mantain their land without chimicals. We incoporate local people into our project to see options on organic farming and understand the importance of it. 

On our farm we are running different projects right now, and we are eager to recieve help to be able to fullfill all our offers to the planet, animals and people. Just to give you an overview beside the organic farming and building we recieve volunteers to help us with our horse education program around Natural Horsemanship and animal friendly training AND we teach the local kids as due to the actual situation the kids are missing of 1,5 years of school! Also we are cooperating with a local organisation and the town mare to teach English to the local people. We also recieve volunteers for our other project please feel free to ask us about about the positions. 

Here are some examples of activities you can do during your time with us:

  • Learn about building with all different kind of materials and techniques
  • Learn how to fix instead of through away
  • grow consciousness about an nature close and organic lifestyle
  • Learn about organic farming in our different gardens (seedlings, watering, weeding, building terraces, harvesting ...)
  • Learn about permaculture and our organic fruit tree forest: We have over 20 varieties of fruit trees on the farm like Avocados, Mangos, Litchies, Pejibaye, etc.etc.
  • Medicinal herb and tee garden
  • Interact with farm animals (chickens, cats, dogs and horses)
  • self made: bread baking, kombucha brewing, cooking etc. 
  • help us to protect our 5ha forest and join us on trash clean ups in the jungle next to our farm 

We like to do shared dinners and dance nights on the weekends. Also we have a campfire place where we come together, play guitar or make stick bread. On the farm there are horse tours offered and the region is great for hiking and bird watching. Around our farm is a lot of jungle with paths in where you can find sloths and beautiful flowers, birds and butterflies. 

We do not have wifi on the farm but with a local SIM card you can find good signal. 

Typical day

In our weekly reunion you will learn about the current projects and fields of work where you can get involved in. 

At 7 am you meet your group leader and start to work in the project. At 9 am we take a coffee break and continue working till midday. After a siesta you will receive 3 x per week a 2 hours Spanish course. The other afternoons are off to relax, explore, do yoga or meditate. 

During the weekends you can take local tours to explore our area or just hang out on the farm and enjoy the lodge. 

Free-time activities

On your time off you can book a guided tour in the area we help you to arrange this. Our area is famous for wild water rafting, waterfalls, choclade tour, coffee tour, cheese tour, national parks to visit. You can visit the irazu vulcano, Cartago or the weekly market in Turrialba. You can also book a two days tour to the beach. There are many options to be busy on the weekend.
