Help Rebuild BV/TS Infrastructure

Many of you have been to Buenaventura and to my daughter Tamara's farm, Three Seeds.

Puenta Alma (Soul Bridge) was washed away and it was the only way to reach Buenaventura's Casa Maya Luna Temple, Buenaventura's 160 acre rainforest eco-park, and Three Seeds organic farm.

My son Harlow lost everything in the troplical storm that went through Costa Rica. 

Literally everything on the road-side (Harlow's personal residence, the main river-lodge and all the cabins) and all of Harlow's personal belonging and everything used to operate the lodge was washed away by the raging river and is now totally gone.  There is literally nothing standing, not even the foundations of the structures, everything was washed away down to the riverbed. 

A separate GoFundMe campaign has been set up to help Harlow directly to rebuild his life, as he has lost almost everything, and needs financial support to cover costs of buying clothes, personal items and getting back on his feet. 

To support Harlow directly, please go to:

This campaign is specifically to raise $40,000  immediately for the following infrastructure so Buenaventura and Three Seeds can begin the rebuilding process and re-open and to cover loss of income:

* Build a 200+ ft long foot bridge across the river to access Buenaventura & Three Seeds 

* Re-install power lines and services to Three Seeds 

* Re-install water lines and buy new watertanks to provide potable water to Three Seeds and BV's Maya Luna Temple 

* Cover operating expenses for Buenaventura & Three Seeds for lost income for the next 6 months to pay salaries, groundkeepers, overhead, etc.  

Please find it in your heart to help us with the neccessary infrastructure so we can begin the rebuilding process and reopen this high season. 

God Bless You,
Harlow & Tamara's Mother Carlette
