Volunteers at Finca Mountain Ridge
We are receiving volunteers at Finca Mountain Ridge who would like to hone their tropical gardening skills while experiencing the Costa Rican “campo” or countryside in a beautiful location 35 minutes from San Isidro del General in southern pacific Costa Rica, in the town of San Agustin. (population appox. 200)
We are developing the grounds for a small conscious community using an array of organic and natural farming techniques. We ask that volunteers put in four hours per day (ideally from 6-10 am or 7-11 am as work days usually begin at 6 am in the campo), five days a week on gardening projects that you will design and implement as well as internet/marketing tasks if applicable. You will have the rest of the day free as well as weekends to enjoy the grounds, mingle with the locals, go to town, etc.
The fee is $10 per day with a one month minimum, although two or more is preferred. (Less than a one month stay is $15/day) We will house you in Casa Terracotta ( 3 bedroom, 2 bath-sleeps 4 persons) and provide you with an equipped kitchen, internet, land line phone for local calls, dry staples and farm harvest such as organic greens, fruits, tubers, etc. (You can also purchase home cooked food as well as eggs, dairy, tamales, tortillas, coffee, etc. from the locals. There are also two excellent farmers markets per week in the area.) And best of all, a sloth family lives on the premises who will delight you for hours on end!
Contact us and tell us about you, your availability and what you could contribute as a Volunteer at Finca Mountain Ridge.
