Finca Tierra - Permaculture Education and Demonstration Center
- Puerto Viejo, Limon, Costa Rica
Finca Tierra is a Permaculture education and demonstration center hosting sustainable living courses and internships throughout the year. During select months of the year the center offers Farm Stays for travelers who are looking for a special place to experience sustainable living, reconnect with nature and eat off the land.
We are located near Puerto Viejo de Talamanca, Limon, Costa Rica , a lush Caribbean beach-rimmed jungle community, and are close to the fabulous tree-lined sand beaches south of Puerto Viejo.
We are 100% solar powered, and harvest both rainwater and natural spring water. Our organic gardens and food forest supply almost all of the ingredients used in our farm kitchen. The farm kitchen prepares three daily meals with the freshest ingredients. Our buildings are constructed with natural materials that we harvest and fabricate onsite.
Finca Tierra’s education facility acts as a local research station for strategies, techniques and plants that are cultural acceptable and environmentally suitable as well as appropriate technologies, which are economically viable and require low capital investment. Gastronomically we aim to reintegrate local food reliance by creating nutritionally balanced plates that are grown locally for the least amount of effort and input.
