The results of the project so far

The land is under development in Bagaces for community living. We are about 8 months away before someone can live on the land.

What are specific, distinctive, strong elements in this project?

Our ultimate goal is to create a community with around 150 people living together that focuses on sustainable living.

Which specific lessons, do's and don'ts would you like to share? What would be suggestions for others when preparing or implementing the project in their own city?

The challenges in Costa Rica are finding reliable workers and contractors. It is very difficult to do everything because there are many hurdles and delays each step of the way.

Currently, we are in a start-up stage and we are trying to find people that can come on board that is interested in our ideas and goals.
