* We are also a botanical collection of over 250 fruit tree species, over 150 identified medicinal plants and countless other roots, veggies, natives and naturalized species! Surround yourself in abundance!
* We taught Costa Rica’s first permaculture course beginning in 2001, our teachers have worked not only their own land, but have been a part of numerous other projects, so you get a broad perspective and experiences to learn from.
* We are off-the-grid, immersed in the wild, so you get to disconnect to deeply reconnect with the land
* We also teach from various perspectives, trying to pull permaculture out of the agricultural bubble and find ways it can be applied in other fields of study and practice.
