Costa Rica Update: Daniel’s Farm

Today is Sunday the 21st and we went to Don Daniel Vega’s organic farm! Breakfast was amazing, as usual, and at 8:30 am off we went to build a mandala garden. We made a sun-like shape, and it only took a couple hours! While we waited for the soil to settle we each took turns milking one of Daniel’s cows. Once we were done we began planting Spanish cilantro in the mandala beds. After a job well done, we celebrated with a little afternoon snack provided by Daniel’s wife consisting of coffee & yucca (which was also amazing). Afterwards, Don Daniel Vega brought us on a tour of the community and showed us a river— which we obviously all jumped in! 🙂
