Agroecology Education Service Trip

I am a student at the University of Florida and this past spring break I had the pleasure of living and learning on La Gran Vista Agroecological Tour. Donald is extremely patient with his volunteers; whether or not you have experience, Donald will answer any and all questions you have in addition to showing you how the farm operates at a sustainable level.

You are fully immersed in Costa Rican culture and Xinia does her best to accommodate any diet restrictions. In my week there, Donald inspired me to take small steps back home in minimizing my carbon footprint and what I can do to be a better global citizen in my own community. Costa Rica is a beautiful country and I couldn't have asked for a better first experience in Costa Rica than through Donald's mentorship.
