Today, a LFRV can learn to be self sufficient, live off the land using permaculture, forage and cultivate wild food, and build your own eco-chic sustainable home at low cost. Where? At an established special raw food farm in Costa Rican paradise called Jewel of the Sun. There is 170 acres in the cooler breezy mountains one hour from warm Pacific beaches, with over 1200 fruit trees and many veggie gardens planted so far. You are invited to come to learn, live, love nature at its tropical best. Inquiries for internships, long term skilled work-trades, and settling are welcome. Photos and info: www.vivalaraw.org. Many opportunities for long term entrepreneurships. Now seeking landskeeper, bio-architecture designer/builder. Lets' hear from you and we'll build it beautiful!

Great Eric! Could you give some more details about it, when you have fully developed it? Would be great for the rest of us who are tough as well :)

Hi Jay,

good to hear something is going on in good old Europe. I have not thought going back but I will follow the development of your site in Portugal (if I can). I have not settled yet for anything and might even join you guys ;-) Keep us posted and good luck.

Hi Axel, Good luck with your search, myself and Neuron are looking at the Algarve, Portugal for a raw community

Comment by Michel on November 14, 2011 at 7:47am

For now we are attracted to the South of Minas Gerais state - not the most tropical state in Brazil, but a magnificient region which should allow us to grow most fruit trees. Our project generated lots of interest, but since it has not yet started we cannot really talk about people being "on board". Yes, let's stay in touch!
