Community Farm exchange in Costa Rica – Volunteer at the Jungle Temple!

Costa Rica volunteer retreat โ€“ Good day! My name is Tobin and I recently moved into a property The Jungle Temple in Costa Rica.
The property is full of fresh organic fruit, vegetables and herbs. It also has a relaxing pool, tennis court, sauna, multiple living spaces, and access to local natural wonders such as waterfalls, the pacific coast and its beaches, a nearby swimmable river with Jurassic Park-esque views.

I need help growing and harvesting the foods and medicines, as well as propagating the fruit trees to sell at our Vivero (nursery).

I would also appreciate help in areas such as food storage, product creation, property maintenance, construction, content creation and online marketing growth.

What type of host are you?

Private/Individual/family

What are you looking for help with?
What’s the mission of your community?

To enlighten and empower. With the capacity to offer real-life education and hands-on experience, the property and space of The Jungle Temple itself is the living mission. Providing abundant variants of fruits and medicinal herbs, I inherited a treasure chest of nutritional magic. I have since cleaned most of the property and allowed the existing edibles to flourish, as they were left unattended prior to my moving here. Now, I have planted a quickly growing vegetable and herb garden and discovered many more species on the property than expected. The Jungle Temple needs your help, in order to help our community, and endlessly beyond.

Language

English or Spanish

Geography

Tropical farmland near a large river at the base of a large, jungle mountain range. Directly surrounded by the foothills, our property has a steady breeze all day but gets very warm in the afternoons. Thankfully the property has a lot of tree growth for shade and the housing structures stay cool with fans. Beautiful birds in large flocks fly into and over the property all day, dozens of macaws, toucans, and other rare tropical fauna can be found hanging on our 500+-year-old Guanacaste tree.

How to get to your site

Aeroplane to San Josรฉ airport. Taxi or Uber to the property address.

Is there internet access?

Yes, but not very strong.

“Paying guests” Option. Could you accommodate “solidarity” tourists?

Yes, we can accommodate eco/responsible tourists & paying guests
