Hello Permaculturalists, I am in the second year of converting a 35 Hectare abandoned farm in Costa Rica. Unfortunately I am still not here full time. However, the movement in Costa Rica seems to be growing in two directions. One of those directions which I am looking to foster is the socially inclusive variety, with the intention of growing the local as well as the international community of good land stewards in Costa Rica. My motivation at this stage is to create a network here. Costa Rica is in some ways an underdeveloped country in which information is difficult to obtain even more so if one wants credible information. Some supplies are also hard to obtain. (I cant find alfalfa, or clover seeds for example.) In general I find permaculture information for the wet tropics to be sparse as compered to that of arid, or temperate information. (It could be just that I have not found that fountain yet.) So I hope to collect Costa Rica specific information for sharing. The second part of the network I hope to create is to have permaculturalists interested in a stay in Costa Rica to visit our network of farms most of us with minimal means to help with technical suggestions as most of us are new to the field. So far Finca Las Koalas in La Linda de Preez Zeledon, and Ciielo Verde in San Ignacio de Acosta are part of this group. The biggest issue we have is managing water. Too much in rainy season and too little in dry season. I am in the process of starting the water management earthworks at the top of the farm. Appreciate any inputs from this community.
