Gaia Vista is a smorgasbord of unique varieties of organic fruit trees.
Imagine walking through our property, enjoying fresh ripe exotic fruits right off the trees.
At the present time we have over 20 different varieties that have already been planted at Gaia Vista and ideally we will have many more types of exotic fruit trees.
In keeping with our goal of becoming fully sustainable, in the future we will also be planting various types of fruit trees that specific animals and birds in Costa Rica love and therefore will be providing for our ourselves; as well as for our rainforest animal neighbors.
The best time to plant tropical fruit trees is at the beginning of the green season, and we will be going down to plant more in June and July of this year, and are presently looking for organic farming volunteers to help out.
We will also be growing a variety of organic vegetables and medicinal herbs.
In addition we plan on raising chickens for eggs and possibly to eat.
The start of our Organic Farm in Costa Rica is laid out using Permaculture principles, and would mostly be run by volunteers and a couple of paid workers.
Permaculture is a philosophy of working with, rather than against nature. The observing of natural patterns in nature becomes a part of the design process itself; nature herself becomes a co-creator of Permaculture and sustainable design concepts.
