VerdEnergia Pacifica is a nine year old intentional permaculture community and reforestation project located in the rural mountains of Pursical, Costa Rica. We are repairing 64 acres of destroyed cattleland into a permaculture food and energy forest with a focus on ecosystem regeneration and alternative lifestyle creation in one of the most deforested areas in the country. Our area is not your typical tourist area. Although VerdEnergia is a cultural hub drawing together people from all over the world, our local community is largely untouched by tourism and exemplifies a refreshingly authentic Pura Vida lifestyle.
We are looking for helpers this upcoming April-December for a multitude of projects including gardening, tree loving, nursery building, tree planting, fermentation, aquaculture and natural building. We are looking for dedicated individuals who can jump in to our diverse community, work hard and have fun! Check out our website for more details. --> http://www.verdenergia.org/participation/
We are also looking for a motivated, self-directed permaculturalist to implement and oversee the production of crops, including long-term plan development, on our community food forest farm. The Permaculture Production Manager is primarily responsible for maintaining and refining our pre-existing systems. This individual must be skilled at working with people and making things happen as they will work directly with the community and a supporting labor force including participants and employees.
Room and board are provided with the possibility of a stipend as farm productivity increases. We also provide the opportunity and resources to cultivate new skills in a number of different areas of thriving community living.
