Armonía Ambiental offers various activities for visitors, from talks and demonstrations to more adventurous excursions. Armonía Ambiental is an ecological farm where everything is produced organically.
The talks we offer are related to organic farming and waste management, in general, and the self-sustainable management of the farm. In these talks, we teach how to use natural products to produce fertilizers, insecticides, or pesticides. We have several exhibitions of the products harvested throughout the year and demonstrations of various food processes, such as flour, coffee, vinegar, and many more, which explain all the steps in detail. All these demonstrations are carried out using traditional and artisanal methods. They are an excellent way to learn how people used to work in Costa Rica only a short time ago. In addition, the recycling methods used to produce fertilizers and much more are on display.
