Interns and volunteers at Fuente Verde work in a tropical farm and intentional community composed of families and individuals who share the common vision to live sustainably and harmoniously with the earth and other living things.
Fuente Verde is located in one of the most beautiful areas of Costa Rica. We are in a valley surrounded by mountains, waters rise and flow through the farm, blessing us with a great biodiversity of flora and fauna, making this place beautiful and quiet.
Interns and volunteers have the opportunity to interact with members of our farm community and the nearby local community, called Las Tumbas. We invite you to come to Fuente Verde with an attitude of respect, openness and willingness to work and learn.
Our Fuente Verde community works enthusiastically with integrated master plan and have many short and long term projects available for interns and volunteers. That is why we value volunteers or interns who want to work hard in exchange for an educational environment that offers free flowing knowledge and practical experience in our gorgeous and friendly environment. Accommodations for interns and volunteers are located in our community house and include basic services like clean drinking water, electricity, internet and access to a well stocked kitchen for individual or group food preparation. Volunteers often enjoy fresh fruits from our farm, and other supplies are purchased from the many farmers who sell their goods at the Feria, a weekly farmers market.
Volunteers stay a minimum 1 month. You are welcome to stay longer in the program, we'd like it as interns! Interns commit to 3 months minimum. Cost:$ 450 each month for volunteers; $ 200 each month for interns.
We may also be interested in having a volunteer coordinator who can commit to at least 6 months. please inquire if interested.
