Costa Rica School / Farm Proj.

Today (Tuesday October 23rd) a group of Canadian Entrepreneurs visited a Costa Rica school called San Francisco in the La Fortunate area of Costa Rica.  There they were introduced to an amazing concept of learning that combines traditional, yet out of the box schooling, with farming to not only feed the kids in the school organic healthy food that they are involved in growing but also teaching them the art of connecting with nature and the education that happens when they combine that with teaching.  This school is one of a kind in Costa Rica and is currently being studied as a model to replicate around CR. 

This group of entrepreneurs were so inspired by what they witnessed and the time they spent with these kids we decided it was time for us to give back.   The farming part of the school is separate from the public education in the school so that means they need to create their own funding in order to keep it going.  Funding for farming staff that teach the kids and supplies and expansion. 

We we as a group want to encourage you to join us in achieving our goal of raising money not only for their continuation but for them to thrive and grow. 

Each of you you will most likely be invited to this page either directly from one of the leaders who are here on this journey or from someone who supports them. You can connect with us to get more details and to talk about why we feel this is important  campaign and what the time with the kids and learning about the school has meant to us.

One thing we are clear on is this model of learning, feeding our kids healthy food and connecting with nature is something the whole world needs and can learn from this school. 


100% of all funds raised will go to the school to use to run, support and expand their impact.  If you have any questions about who is behind this campaign and how funds are going to be delivered please connect with The creator of this campaign.
