It has been a pleasure to have dedicated my entire career in helping others. I have worked and lived in Latin American countries such as Mexico as a child and Bolivia for more than a decade of my adult life. Presently, I live on my farm in Costa Rica and host several projects in my community as well as run a B &B, organic food production and natural cosmetic studies. In addition, I serve on the Big River Foundation-a 501c3 educational nonprofit organization; as a board member and a member of the Production Team for the full length feature documentary film: Tjër Di, What Price Paradise?
My purpose in Costa Rica, is to live peaceably on our farm and use the land to provide opportunity to our community ' El distrito de Biolley' (The Biolley district). Many community members of Biolley are very industrious and kind. They are sincere in improving their lives. We want to bring awareness and help promote the right kind of tourism for the La Amistad International Park and provide more opportunity for the Biolley district to earn an income and not be forced to give up their way of life in the country, in order to find work in the city.
Finca Lilo (our farm) donates its certified USDA-NOP organic coffee to the community of Altamira de Biolley-AsoProLA an association of producers of La Amistad, (we donate approx. 10 acres-about 16,000 coffee plants).
Additionally, the farm features organic gardens with food, spices, fruit trees and other medicinal plants and two cabins for rent. The farm hires local employees to assist in keeping beautiful gardens, pathways and pool. Finca Lilo only works with locals and provides employment incentives with the idea of handing over the management of the farm and cabins to the locals in about 3 to 4 years time (2016 or so).
