Costa Rica Voluntourism Edventure

                               Sacred Seeds Challenge -- “Semillas Sagradas”

We are excited to be able to offer this workshop and volunteer travel program that features the Luna Nueva Model for biodynamic & organic gardening developed by James Steven Farrell combined with the ideals of the  Seed Saver’s Sanctuary.  Take the Seed Savers Challenge, learn to be a seed-saver in your home biota,  and participate in a Seed-Saving Expedition!

The first five days you will explore the ideas of Biodynamic Organic Farming and the Seed Savers models.  This  program aims at producing a citizen prepared to preserve species biodiversity in a world more and more threatened by species reduction and extinction.  This is the Challenge:  take what you learn and move it out into the world.  You will become familiar with the specific educational and practical components that are key to your project's implementation.

After the seminar component you will then have the opportunity to travel to one of our sites and be able to apply your new  skills  in one of our many hopeful sustainability and seed collection project sites.

We will be working together with locals on the implementation of the Models' 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 too?  Yes!  We will find some fun along the way for sure, kayaking, hiking, wildlife discovery, canopy tours, and rafting are some of the adventures we might enjoy in CR and the project host country.
