Farm-to-Table with Colonia Libertard Women's Group
The Women's Group are a very strong group of women who have spent a majority of their lives in rural Colonia Libertard. Come spend a day with this group of hard working and motivated women learning a bit about local horticulture and traditional cooking in Costa Rica.
Once you arrive, the women's group will give you a tour of the group house and garden. They will explain the process of gardening and what they have available and when. Next, they will present different cooking options and pick as much as they can from the garden and explain the process of preparing and cooking a traditional Costa Rican meal. Afterward, the group will all sit down together and enjoy the meal while the woman practice their english and the travelers can practice their spanish. Many times, the women have to bring their children to their days at the group house so it is always fun to interact with them. After cleaning up, you can relax with a cup of coffee (traditional cafecito).
The success of the garden depends solely on the amount of rainfall they receive. In case of a bad rainy season, please understand that they will have to supplement ingredients from nearby stores as needed.
Of course if the travelers want to stay, they can arrange home stays for a true community experience.
