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.

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/pages/mycostaricafarmcom/450967934936522?ref=hl

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/wiki/Humanure#Humanure

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/
