All infrastructure in place. Have been planting fruit trees and more for 9 years. Food is becoming abundant. Landscape is now stable and improving yearly. Its an incredible small farm about 10 acres. Have lots of volunteer interest, would like to find a longer term arrangement. Wonder if there is are interested parties in forming a community and working together on projects.

Hi Steve,

I'm actively looking for an intentional community for the long haul and I would be very interested in Costa Rica. I've always been dissatisfied with the consumeristic, individualistic American way of life and believe that being part of an intentional community is a way of life that would work very well for me. Please let me know what you are looking for?

Rich

Hi Jim, I'm on the tip of the Nicoya peninsula, on the pacific side. Does have some things in its favor, like close to good fishing. 5 minutes to the bay. Surrounded by nice beaches and pretty tranquil here yet. Weather is quite stable here. It does get a bit warm during the day, tops about 95. Usually a breeze here in the warm season. Every single evening is perfect temperature. There is some running water on the property half the year. Its possible to grow year round, has taken some time learning what and when. Fresh fruit and stuff every day.

Hello Richard, I understand what your saying. Now would be the ground floor so could develop the plan. I am fairly flexible and I do realize this can be difficult so the initial plan would be important. What I have to offer is a part of what I usually refer to as paradise. Have invested much and learned a lot in these last 9 yrs. So by sharing this would be a huge headstart for anyone interested in joining. I am skilled at various tasks and try to be fairly self sufficient. A person with horticultural experience would be a huge plus. Experience with animals helpful. It would be nice to share tasks and have others to look after the place occasionally.
