At the project they grow most of there own food organically, which includes hundreds of species of tropical fruits, vegetables, herbs, medicinal plants as well as bamboo and extensive native hardwood reforestation, use Eco-technologies, create a sense of community and are dedicated to educating learners of all ages and from all walks of life.

DO NOT bring any soap, shampoo, or conditioner that is not biodegradable!!!

Be warned that the tropical jungle is not the kindest environment for material possessions. We recommend not bringing anything you are really attached to (clothes, jewelry, books, etc.) as things might get wet / moldy / stained / really smelly (even things such as books). Leather will especially be damaged.
