Global Creek - Environmental-Education & Sustainable-Living Institute
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 theCaribbean coast of Costa Rica, borne in the area of Puerto Viejo de Talamanca in 2008. Ourmission is to connect local and international communities to further ecological research andinformation sharing and to ultimately further – make simpler and more accessible – holisticsustainable living approaches for both our local communities and international visitors (in theirown lives and their communities as well). Our main international reach towards these goalscomes through our highly-reviewed Volunteer Program, in which we work with host campusesto provide an experiential-learning centre not only for daily visitors but for a completelyintegratedvolunteer work-living experience.Global Creek's core campuses are at their foundations sustainable-living centres and biodynamicresearch farms, active and working, where all of our operations and activities arecarried-out in the most environmentally-friendly, ecological and sustainable – in all facets ofthe word – manner possible. Our work starts with and focuses on our grounds and varyingoperations and projects found directly at our campuses, and then extends right out first tolocal and even global communities. All of our programs and projects are supported andindeed run by our volunteers in our top-rated work-exchange operation, providing yet anotherlevel of sustainability in this grassroots-style approach. This turns first-and-foremost directly into aworking, learning ecological farm and guest space where we come together to learn and doand share with all others, however we can.How You Can Be InvolvedOur volunteer work-exchange program is designed to provide some unique growth andlearning opportunities to those able to lend their time and energy to support our programs andoperations and allow us to provide these priceless benefits and services to the local andglobal communities, human and otherwise.
