Program Description

Background of the Organization:
With stunning views of El Valle de General and Costa Rica’s tallest mountain, Mount Chirripo, La Gran Vista Agricultural Ecological Farm is well deserving of its name “The Great View”. It is situated in the rural county of Perez Zeledon, three hours south of San Jose, the capital of Costa Rica, in an area of outstanding natural beauty. Protected forests, sublime beaches, and fabulous waterfalls can be found nearby. Finca La Gran Vista was established on January 16, 2001 as a non-profit project. It has the aim of spreading awareness of environmentally sustainable agricultural methods to other farmers in the region. It is intended to provide an example for other farms on how the following practices can be employed successfully:
• Organic farming.
