THE PROJECT


La Flor Agroecological Farm is a project established over 20 years ago by ASODECAH (Association for the Development of Environmental and Human Consciousness), a non-profit organization that seeks to complement the country's environmental education and strengthen the relationship between human beings, animals, environment, and well being. We invite academic groups, volunteers, language students, artists, yoga practitioners, and visitors to experience a lifestyle that is in contact with nature.

Our farm is located in the highlands of the Central Valley mountains with an incredible view of the Orosi valley and the Turrialba volcano. The community of people who come to work on the farm live in a nearby village and have many years of collaboration with the project.

 

You can walk the paths on our 10 hectares (25 acres) of regenerated forest, observe and learn in organic and medicinal gardens, enjoy the presence of farm animals (chickens, horses, goats, ducks) and meditate or practice in the yoga studio.

Our TEAM


Here are the faces that you see every day on the farm. Together we organize the farm working in the gardens, caring for the animals, cooking, maintaining the forest, and creating art. We enjoy working with volunteers and sharing our experiences and knowledge of life on the farm. We do everything to make you feel at home and appreciate the presence of each human being open to share this simple lifestyle in connection with nature.
