We have been facilitating incredible cross cultural and educational programming for many years in this region home to Indigenous communities such as the BriBri, Kekoldi, and Cabecar, Chinese and Afro-Costa Rican communities, as well as immigrant communities from North American and Canada. Our programs highlight the local plant people, farmers, herbalists, healers, seedsavers, the keepers of this knowledge and culture, those who are helping it to continue on and to thrive into the future. Our tours support first and foremost the local economy, our teachers, hosts, and tours are all Costa Rican owned and operated.
