Are you looking to be a volunteer somewhere exciting? We may have an opportunity for you to help out at our farm.

POSITION AVAILABLE: Organic Farm Volunteer

Do you love dirt and getting your hands dirty? Are you thrilled to watch stuff grow? Are you psyched to be part of the current green revolution and want to make the world a better and healthier place? If somebody tells you something is impossible, does that motivate you to double your effort to prove them wrong?

Here at Rancho Delicioso, we’re working hard every day to do what people have said is impossible, which is to grow amazing local produce in a very hostile climate of too much sun and rain, a multitude of bugs, soil depleted by decades of over-grazing, and a no-can-do attitude. We are doing the impossible, and making rapid progress in growing all kinds of healthy plants despite the challenges and our total lack of previous experience in organic farming. Are you ready for a great adventure in the tropical jungles of Costa Rica?  If you’re ready to commit to at least a month and become part of our family, then let us know.
