Finca Las Hormigas
A Permacultural Community blending education, discovery
and regenerative farming
It is our desire and intention to blend the mixed characteristics of the land to offer a balance between a committed environmental protection, civic education, financial sustainability and permaculture principles.
We desire to create an environment and community that optimizes the beauty, magic and power of living in synchronicity between humans, animals, wildlife, plants and natural resources in a sustainable and regenerative manner.
After a short trek from Puerto Viejo into the jungle, my friends and I were greeted by ineffable beauty. From the twisting river to the open air jungle kitchen, every place will forever be etched in my memory. I could do without the abrupt awakening of a howler monkey, but even so you grow to appreciate them over time. The farm challenged me in not only the ways that I think about humanity's role within nature as a whole, but also essential improvisational cooking skills, where sometimes working with what you have is the best thing you can do. Grateful towards the farm and Manu for the opportunity it provided to cross paths with some of the most lovely people I have ever known.
