A casual 40-minute mountain drive, through some lovely pueblos and charming vistas, brings you to a small farming village, named San Agustín, and it’s new landmark – a yellow veggie oil bus, parked at the top of our driveway. We are perched on a ridge top, overlooking the entire valley of Pérez Zeledón, with Mount Chirripó, Costa Rica’s tallest mountain, as its center piece. The views on the farm are breathtaking, and give the feeling of being on top of the world.
On the farm you will find Casa La Vista, complete with a 10-meter wide yoga deck, over 150 young fruit trees & dozens of mature ones, a budding festival grounds, The Fruition Center, school buses, covered tent zones, dormitory, an office and library, greenhouse, composting toilets, solar heated showers, a natural swimming pond, permaculture gardens and systems, and plenty of space to welcome future members who wish to build their own home in the hills.
We continue to learn as we journey through the building of additional infrastructure.
We have located three artesian springs on the property, and have been able to supply fresh drinking water to three different zones on the property, with just one of them. Animal husbandry is a budding element of farm life here. And each season brings new waves of growth both in the soil, and those of us walking above. All of our practices are in accordance to strict organic standards. We would have it no other way.
We are welcoming Community Farmstay guests, Volunteers, and Families interested in community living who don’t mind “rustic” accommodations, and enjoy the creative process of breaking ground and building hosting grounds for generations to come.
