is it possible to return land close to it's "natural state."
Costa Rica has unique and irreplaceable assets that if lost, will be at our peril and detriment.

want to help and encourage farmers and other land owners in Costa Rica to

"paving the way" to having the skilled labor force it will require to run
By working together, we can make your farm into a model that hopefully, will in
effect catalyze your neighbors into more environmentally sustainable
practices as well.
