Porvenir was brought in to create a vision and roadmap for future educational programming and passive education at the Valle Escondido Preserve. We provided feedback on existing permaculture systems and technical advice for growing increased quantities of food in the future.
Rain Water Catchment, Playa Hermosa, Costa Rica
This rain water catchment to tree irrigation project was a retro-fit to existing infrastructure to accommodate rain water catchment. This helps to combat rising water prices and uncertain climate activity in a coastal region of the Nicoya Peninsula.
Mauser EcoHouse, Parrita, Costa Rica
A day visit to the Mauser EcoHouse homestead saw the brainstorming of educational programming options for revenue generation. As well, Porvenir provided technical assistance on numerous aspects of the homestead such as; gardens, tree care, plant propagation, greenhouse design, chickens, community involvement and agreements, water management, and species selection.
CIRENAS, Santa Teresa, Costa Rica
Implementation and Maintenance
Porvenir founder Sam Kenworthy was the on-ground manager for the implementation of four hectares of agroforestry systems on the CIRENAS campus. This included earthworks, pond construction, rain-water catchment, irrigation, erosion control systems, waster treatment, and nearly 3000 trees in the ground. Sam also developed educational curriculum for CIRENAS.
