About.

We are in the process of creating a sustainable, self-sufficient monkey and wildlife rescue center and permaculture farm that is run entirely by volunteers who live and learn on the farm. The farm is located only 1 kilometer from the beach and is minutes from a quaint tourist town, Playas del Coco. We are using permaculture methods to grow food for ourselves and our animals, harvest rainwater and many other methods. We offer volunteer led horseback riding tours to the beach for the tourists to earn a little income to support the project.
