Volunteer at small, organic, sustainble family farm


This is the Deal

We are a small organic family farm focused on becoming self sufficient and sustainable by not only growing our own food, but also making our own soaps, building our housing with ecological resources and have as little of a carbon footprint as we can!
We focus on education wanting other people to be able to have an experience of living this lifestyle and also teaching others practical ways they can apply this to their own lives. We are young and have been working on this project for 2 years, so there is still a long way to go. And a lot of help needed! We are looking for volunteers willing to work hard and enjoy the south caribbean of Costa Rica. We would love to have people who have some experience working on farms because we are learning by our experiences here so any ideas or contributions are helpful.

Our volunteers work 5 days for 7 hours and then 3-4 hours on saturday. On top of this we ask for a contribution to pay for food, as we are not yet producing everything ourselves.
