Sustainable Homestead in Costa Rica



Sustainable Homestead in Costa Rica

Image Through a combination of small scale hydroelectric power and biogas generated from decomposing plant matter and manure, this homestead in San Luis, Costa Rica is 100% energy self-sufficient. Crops grown organically on-site include coffee, dragon fruit, bananas, and many different traditional vegetables like red peppers and kale. Tilapia fish are raised in a small pond on the homestead. Comfortable, low-impact, sustainable living in the Tilaran Mountains of Costa Rica!
