Hello Friends,

My name is Ryan, I am new to the permie community. I have a 2 year old off grid homestead in the southern pacific zone of beautiful Costa Rica. I will be heading down there in the beginning of december to continue working on the project. Although the property is only 10 minutes moto cruise to one of the zones best left hand point breaks (for the surfers out there) where the homesteads located is quite solitary. This is great, peaceful, and full of fauna... however life is a lot easier and more fun when you have friends around to help.

I am hoping to find a person or persons who would be interested in spending time in the jungle living and doing projects ie. irrigation system refit, green house repair and planting, chicken tending, cob building, spring tree planting to name a few of the options.

I am not in a position to pay a salary however room and board could be covered, I have a moto, truck, and horse for transportation and try to surf as regularly as possible.
The house is quite rustic but has running water gravity fed from the river that runs year round on the farm, we are close to waterfalls and have pure spring water for drinking. It is the tropics and jungle so there are bugs but with the fresh breezes that consistently blow it isn't too bad.

If you like surfing, fishing, or horseback adventures this could be a fun way to vacation cheaply, and get some hands on experience.

Hope to hear from you soon

Ryan Griffin
Permaculture isn't that hard to understand. Sometimes a little bump helps:
