It's not what we do, it's how we do it.
Global Creek is an environmental education and sustainable-living centre based out of the
Caribbean coast of Costa Rica, borne in the area of Puerto Viejo de Talamanca in 2008. Our
mission is to connect local and international communities to further ecological research and
information sharing and to ultimately further – make simpler and more accessible – holistic
sustainable living approaches for both our local communities and international visitors (in their
own lives and their communities as well). Our main international reach towards these goals
comes through our highly-reviewed Volunteer Program, in which we work with host campuses
to provide an experiential-learning centre not only for daily visitors but for a completelyintegrated
volunteer work-living experience.
Global Creek's core campuses are at their foundations sustainable-living centres and biodynamic
research farms, active and working, where all of our operations and activities are
carried-out in the most environmentally-friendly, ecological and sustainable – in all facets of
the word – manner possible. Our work starts with and focuses on our grounds and varying
operations and projects found directly at our campuses, and then extends right out first to
local and even global communities. All of our programs and projects are supported and
indeed run by our volunteers in our top-rated work-exchange operation, providing yet another
level of sustainability in this grassroots-style approach. This turns first-and-foremost directly into a
working, learning ecological farm and guest space where we come together to learn and do
and share with all others, however we can.
How You Can Be Involved
Our volunteer work-exchange program is designed to provide some unique growth and
learning opportunities to those able to lend their time and energy to support our programs and
operations and allow us to provide these priceless benefits and services to the local and
global communities, human and otherwise. We offer volunteers accommodation and
amenities in a natural setting at one of our various unique-but-always-gorgeous campuses,
specialized and customized learning resources and opportunities, organic healthy meals and
beverages, direct on-the-ground and -in-community experiential learning, tours and excursions
to local areas & sites and some truly unique and special learning and personal growth
opportunities. This comes in exchange for volunteers’ time and energy in supporting us in our
various sustainability projects, a modest fee to cover basic living and support costs, and most
importantly the investment of their passion in what we will be accomplishing together.
As a volunteer, you might say it Is what we all do, and how you do it.
