                                                     Spreading the Seeds of Biodynamic Agriculture

Overview

Finca Luna Nueva Lodge in the La Fortuna region of Costa Rica, not only the epicenter of biodynamic farming in the region, is also at the center of adventure travel in Costa Rica.  The Arenal Volcano, Lake Arenal, great mountain biking and whitewater rafting are all nearby

Among other crops such as cacao and coffee, Finca Luna Nueva produces turmeric and ginger for nutritional supplements such as anti-inflammatory and constitution-building herb blends.  The biodynamic - organic crops are extensive, but are practically invisible, as they are melded completely with the rainforest.  Your instructors will show you how to implement this non-invasive farming technique into  new communities.

The first three days you will enjoy an intensive exploration of  the foundations, farming methods, practical applications, and implementation necessities of the the model. Our instructors will facilitate your success in the project phase.

You will then travel to one of our service project sites.  We will be working together with locals on the implementation of the Model’s methods, helping these communities to have a more sustainable future as small-scale producers and Fair-Trade savvy sellers.

Whatever your skill set we welcome your energy and desire to have a fun and validating adventure vacation.  Adventure?  Yes!  We will find some fun along the way for sure, kayaking, hiking, wildlife discovery, canopy tours, and rafting are some of the adventures available in CR.
