Farm Laborers

Are you totally into dirt? Do you, like us, get thrilled at the sight of things growing? Do you want to help make the world a healthier and better place? When someone tells you something is impossible, do you double your effort to prove them wrong?

At Rancho Delicioso we are working every day, experimenting with seeds and plants from around the world, learning how to grow things that haven’t been grown here before. We are scouring the internet for cool plants and advice from green geniuses, so we can bring small-scale farming and food gardening to an area of Costa Rica that has almost none.

It’s not all hard work… you will get to enjoy the jungle and beach as well, improve your Spanish skills, do some surfing, and hang out at Anamaya from time to time to do yoga and enjoy our pool.

If you’re ready to commit to at least a month and become part of our family, then let us know.

Helpful skills:

Organic gardening knowledge
Painting (illustration/art)
Writing and Internet Research
Spanish Language
Raw, vegan, vegetarian, or healthy cooking
Dance, circus, and performance arts
Making people laugh and smile
