About.

Finca Morpho is a small tight knit regenerative, educational, and experimental permaculture community on 4.2 hectares, close to the OSA peninsula's point of Cabo Matapalo, 14km south of Puerto Jimenez, Costa Rica on the road to Matapalo, the only purple gate. We are morphing ourselves and others to be more sustainable, creative, free, happy, at peace, and open-minded to all ideas and ways of lives. Our current focus is everything plant related, from biochar, to compost, to soil, to plants and extending into processing and preservation of the goods we are growing.

Anyone coming to the farm will be focusing on soil, seeds, and plants as well as everything plant related like compost and biochar. We also are begin the long journey of self awareness. This leads us to many talking sticks and community activities to build bridges and reinforce connections. Being surrounded by an indescribable primal energy from the rain-forest and the ocean has inspired us to "Be the change we wish to see in the world" - Mahatma Gandhi. By using bio-dynamic regenerative agriculture we are creating a system that will continue to make top soil for years to come on it's own and able to sequester carbon. Plant and animal care for us is treating all plants and animals the way most people treat their house pets, with lots of love, attention, activities, and healthy food. We are striving towards a sustainable and self-sufficient model for others to learn from and to show others visiting the area how they can add some of these practices into their lives with little to no work involved.
