Finca Tierra Organic Permaculture Farm and Eco-Lodge is an ideal place for vacationers who wish to experience living in sustainability, try out a purely organic diet and become closely connected with nature. The organic farm is based in Puerto Viejo de Talamanca, a coastal town in the Province of Limon of Costa Rica. The operators of the farm incorporate permaculture principles to promote sustainable lifestyle. For tourists, they have a superb program that offers them accommodations in eco lodges and educational tours of the farm. The main goal of Finca Tierra is to motivate people to live in a sustainable and enjoyable manner. They provide hands-on experience and workshops to educate people about sustainable agriculture, agroforestry, alternative construction and energy resources, ethno-botanical medicine and wildlife conservation.
The farm is completely powered by solar energy and harvests both rainwater and natural spring water. There are food forests and organic farms that supply most of the food products in Finca Tierra’s kitchen. All the meals prepared in the farm kitchen utilize fresh and organic ingredients. Even the buildings in the farm are built with natural eco-friendly materials.
