A living laboratory in service to regenerative living and co-evolution with Nature.

  Brave Earth (Tierra Valiente) is a self-sufficient community, regenerative farm, and healing arts center based in Costa Rica. Our goal is to create a new type of model, a living laboratory, to help create transition infrastructure for regenerative living. It is based on a model that is decentralized, resilient, replicable, scaleable and regenerative. Our aim is to create a morphogenetic field that holds the vibration of what is possible when we synthesize the best aspects of Ancestral Wisdom with modern technology. Our long-term vision is to create a network of communities around the world that are united through shared vision and values in order to create a more unified global field. ********* Note, we are still in the midst of construction. While we are open to guests and retreats, please be mindful that there may be some noise. 

Brave Earth (Tierra Valiente) is a regenerative biosphere located in the rainforest near Volcano Arenal in Costa Rica. The location is a treasure of biodiversity located amidst endless tropical rainforests and world-class, natural thermal baths.

Brave Earth consists of an ecovillage, an integrative healing center, an educational institute, a regenerative farm and a co-operatively owned superfood company. Our farm is a part of Familia Luna, a 230-acre shared farming grid in partnership with Finca Luna Nueva Ecolodge.
