TRADE YOUR SKILLS/TIME FOR A PLACE TO STAY IN ESCAZU - the Central Valley
DATES: IMMEDIATE (since we never know what will be needed, please do not contact us until days before you're coming)
LOCATION: Escazu (7 minutes West of San Jose), Costa Rica
Sometimes I need help on various projects and am open to people coming in to Trade their Skills/Time for a Stay in my home in Escazu. Below is a link to a VERY DETAILED description of what it's about, what we give you and what's expected of you regarding the trades. I do that as I LOVE clarity and I believe it helps avoid LOTS of confusion and unhappiness and makes for a MUCH more happy/peaceful/positive interaction. It's not for everyone and that's COOL (though if you're intending to do trades elsewhere - especially on some of the farm/community situations - watch out as they often expect LOTS from you with LOTS less plus accommodations!!).

ORGANIC FARM and GOATS
FINCA FRUICION, an Intentional Community in Costa Rica, is beginning our stewardship with goats and are opening up a volunteer opportunity for someone with experience tending to goats to stay here. We are a permaculture designed, organic farm in the South Pacific facing Mount Chirripo National Park. Tasks would include feeding goats, training them for draft work, working their pasture, walking them to their coral at night, milking them when they are lactating, and making cheese, yogurt, and Keefer. The goats are infants right now, so if you arrived soon, it would include bottle feeding them. We also have chickens, dogs, and rabbits for a holistic perspective of animal husbandry. If you are interested feel free to email with any questions and please send us a bio with a few email references. May your day be inspirational.
WHERE: Approximately 3-1/2 hours South of San Jose and 20 km SW of San Isidro Del General, Perez Zeledon
