Luz del Corazon Eco-Village
Colonia Liberdad, Costa Rica, Costa Rica
We are currently building on our 183 acres of beautiful rural Costa Rica. We have with three rivers and four springs, and about 100 acres of pristine rainforest. We have lake Nicaragua and Volcano views, and are open receive to interns, visitors and member owners.
We have 15 lots available for member owners, and our structure is a member/owner landholders association. We also have food, vehicle ( one diesel 4x4 isuzu amigo) and tool coops to govern the other aspects of rural community life. We plan to build an assisted living and a hospice facility in addition to a green building school. One of our members is a Registered Nurse with over 25 years of Emergency Medicine experience in addition to being a licensed Acupuncturist, herbalist and Qi gong healer. She is already quite popular with the locals for her health and healing treatments.
We are putting in tiliapia ponds, orchards, and gardens. The property already has over 250 citrus trees, coffee trees and cacao trees in addition to abundant natural flora and fauna. We continue to see a wide range of species, including "endangered" ones Jaguars and Harpie Eagles. We have expanded our food production to include many more varied tropical fruit trees, plantains, yucca, ducks, chickens and goats. We are also registering our forest preservation project with the Costa Rican government in order to be paid for selling oxygen and also for reforesting the lands.
We are building platforms this July for four non-toxic Yurt/Dome homes then we will continue with building the simple yet elegant earth bag homes with bedrooms and wildlife viewing areas upstairs.
The property is located about 20 minutes east of Liberia on Rincon de la Vieja. It is accessible by a public road that ends at the gate to the property, we are at the top of the mountain.
We are well connected with the local government and are helping to re-build a local school.The local villages below the property have been receiving their drinking water from our farm, and that will continue. It fosters our relationship with the neighboring communities and facilitates good communication.
In July 2013 we have seven residents on the land, creating the infrastructure and support needed to expand into a full green building school and thriving community gardens and lands.
