Our Community and far beyond is mourning the tragic death this week of an unforgettable, strong, funny, loving, faith filled, giving woman, Nancy Swift Stallard Kruel of Platanillo. The beloved wife of James & co-creator of Finca Alta Gracia, she was an inspiration to many,

best friend to goats, dogs, chickens, humans and her Church. Her loss is enormous as was her huge heart, and she will be missed wide and far.

God bless her soul.

Tune In with In Tune this weekend on the shores of Finca Amrta. Cacao Ceremony too. Check Events page.

We welcome new neighbor, Bonnie Vining ... check her out here.
