Hoping to illustrate and have illustrated here how this intentional community in Costa Rica works regarding shareholders.

To clarify, I invested and became a shareholder about 10 years ago when I visited the farm in its early permaculture days.  There were projections of shareholders receiving dividends, which was not my motivation but a bonus I thought.   There does not appear to be a forum for Verdenergia shareholders to transparently communicate about their shares, or about transferring/selling their shares if life circumstances change, and there is no way for shareholders (many of whom do not live in Costa Rica) to communicate amongst ourselves laterally.  The Verdenergia leadership continue to sell shares to new people, and to talk about how the value of the shares has tripled in 10 years, but if I had known that there would be no accounting provided and no way to market my share to someone else (I'd need some basis to substantiate its cost, and I am just trying to get something close to what I paid) I would definitely NOT have invested.   I would love to hear from others on this...
