Growing in harmony with nature!

This is the green and lush rainy season on Ometepe. It’s a time when the plants around us grow so fast you can actually see the change from day to day.

We’ve been dancing with the rhythm of nature by putting 500 trees in the ground during June and July, including moringa, mango, cacao, coffee, grapefruit, guanabana, sapote, mamey, jackfruit, avocado, breadfruit, starfruit, mamon, eucalyptus, coconut, palm, nispero and malinche! The buildings have also been growing like mad. In the last six months we’ve put up the new Urraca community center, a workshop/storage shed, Erika’s house, the Jungle House, a love shack (ooh la la!), and a cob solar dehydrator.

We are so grateful to everyone who has been here to support us, and braved the muddy conditions! We are especially grateful to Rachel and Simone for leading up the tree planting project. And to Markus for building the roof on the solar dehydrator.

Check out some photos of the new buildings on our flickr. Looking forward to seeing you all for workshop season, which kicks off the end of October with Choktoberfest, our Halloween cacao masquerade celebration!
