Topics: Photos of the Week
New skills and new adventures. Our students have enjoyed their time hiking Costa Rica's trails and waterfalls in addition to learning new skills like permaculture and natural building.

For the past week our students have been living in the land of Pura Vida. Our cohorts have been staying in Rancho Mastatal, a community rooted in environmental sustainability, and Monteverde, a town located in the cloud forest of Costa Rica. At these locations our students have been able to practice new skills, meet amazing people, and enjoy the natural wonders of Costa Rica.

Don’t forget that every Friday we will be putting together our favorite photos and travel highlights from the past week. Be sure to check out last week’s photos, if you missed them. We will be back again with more photos from the field next Friday!
