Costa Rica, First Weeks

The Natural Living School is in Central America this winter for a two month natural building experience Costa Rica “Pura Vida” style. With the groundbreaking of a future eco-village happening, we have been getting rooted into this tropical lifestyle through experiencing the Caribbean coast culture and practicing local building/permaculture techniques.
