Our Panama based group has two individuals that have committed for the long term but need to pass immigration for 30 days in Costa Rica before returning. I am sending them with a mission to study new plant species on new farms for our Nutritional Diversity Diet [1] examinations, and to look at farm projects and farmers that would fit to be in our permaculture for kids production [2]. Flexible dates.

We are looking for farms that want to take on experienced pemaculturists from a cutting edge group, feed them like kings and shelter them for one week, while teaching them about your farm and your cultivations and receiving volunteer help and consideration for our production work in return. Should we find something great for this show we will film right then and there, and will quickly release a sample clip of the tutorial. Later selected segments will be included in a professional quality edited movie or show segment for permaculture education.

We look forward to trying to build good karma, good connection, community and good food with you.Contact here.

Lots of Rentals here.
