Jungle Lover by our own Jan Hart ... please visit her beautiful website here

Just a little reminder to newbies & oldbies ... shake shake shake out your shoes, boots, clothing, towels, & sheets ... you can guess why (you really don't want to hear the stories).

Montaña Verde, a local ecological association with very nice infrastructure close to San Isidro, is inviting new members to come and join them on Saturday at 1:00. After the meeting there will be music and food. For more information call 8301 8916 with Carlos Marín (in Spanish) or write Located in Rivas de Pérez Zeledón.

We hope to see you there! From Casey & Sebastian

Our amazing friends at Upwards Spirals have been updating and upgrading their sites and event directories, and have also created an Organic Directory: Costa Rica which is currently on the front page of the Costa Rica Times, a free collection of 60, and growing locations around Costa Rica to buy organic produce.

This directory is a collaborative work by Upward Spirals and the community of Costa Rica. It is part of our objective to strengthen and amplify the efforts of those working to build a regenerative, local, organic food system. We believe that helping people to buy healthful food strengthens communities, reduces environmental impacts, improves animal welfare, and brings integrity to our purchases and food consumption. Hello! ~ Am (Finally!) Moving into a Casita in Tinamastes...needing a REFRI (mid to full size if possible). Also need stove/ cooktop /burners! Thank You!! 8720 8355

We have a wonderful new line of Neem products ... more about these on our Special Products page soon and now available at Colibri's Corner.

I'm an American traveler making my way to Costa Rica for the first time july 13th. I'm a bit of a nomad who loves to connect with like/open minded people in tune with organic ways of life, community, spirituality, creativity and having fun in whatever way imaginable. A good friend passed on your June 24 email, and sugested I get on your list to learn more about what will be happening when I arrive. I'll be in the country between July 13 and July 23. I have all of zero plans yet and am looking for people, communities, couch surfing opportunities, and events to connect with. If you have any suggestions, it would be so hugely appreciated. :)

Mostly, I just need to figure out where to start the short trip and allow free flow from there :)

Many thanks in advance!! Alexis Oganesoff <>

Enjoy three weeks on an organic farm near San Vito. looking for single or couple to caretake organic farm retreat 9 miles from San Vito. Stay in open style house with great views and beautiful plantings, enjoy whatever is growing, (lots of pineapples, herbs and veggies right now) take care of two small greenhouses, 2 sweet dogs and some enclosed chickens. It is very remote and quiet, and is better if you have your own transportation, but I can also arrange rides to town with neighbors for shopping...dates will range from around August 19 to September 13, but are still flexible. References appreciated. see pictures of the farm at, and contact owner
