PRLog - Jan. 29, 2013 - JACO, Costa Rica -- mycostaricafarm has started several projects on the Western Plot. Most impressively, a rancho with dramatic ocean vistas is well under way, with 40% of the bamboo up top. Project is out of free bamboo. True pondliner-grade plastic is pricey, only in San Jose. Awaiting funds, truck repairs to acquire these items.
a week ago, new pics coming to facebook mycostaricafarm
The timing compliments a week of healing; David Giesecke's Tico friend sharpened the machete a bit too well. Boots are mandatory around any tools. http://www.facebook.com/
Jorge is still at work however, building a rustic bathroom from pine, bamboo, and similar roof. It's a composting toilet for harvesting all that doodoo. http://en.wikipedia.org/
Several ponds and swails are mostly completed as well. These water retention techniques create fertile microzones of unique shade, nutrients, water. While initially gmo and 'modern' farming outperforms this, within a couple years this method will outproduce, without chemicals or fertilizers.
A swimming pond is also in the works! Volunteers (with boots) offered free night's stay at Cabinas Las Olas, 39 min away in famous Playa Hermosa http://www.lasolashotel.com/
