30 Bananas a Day!

winter gathering for the creation of a fruitarian community in Costa-Rica!

Hello dear fruit heads of the world!

Gathering for the creation of the fruitarian community  in Costa-Rica!!

Its with pleasure that I invite all the fruit heads of the world to come and either witness or be part of this wonderful event that will occur this winter, from December first to end of... April!! Or come for however long you want! If your looking for a nice place to spend the winter, surrounded with tropical fruits and fruitarians from all over the world keep reading! Or you can take a look at the progress we've made so far, like gathering all the information you need to know about Costa-Rica, or the people already on board, or the possible land we are interested in... And more, all on our website http://www.fruitariancommunity.tk

Now here's the index of everything you need to know about the gathering... With my phone number at the end for more information...

Housing
Cost per month and available food
Activities
What to bring
Topics of circles

HOUSING

I hope to have at least 20 people present for the event. We'll try to fit everyone on the same property. So bring you tent! We will share a kitchen, which will be a good opportunity to learn about sharing a kitchen among fruitarians... Or good opportunity to show how we behave in communal spaces, after all, one of the main objective of this gathering will be to see each other in many situation! We will also plant a garden as soon as we get there, so all you green thumbs can be satisfy! We hope to move to a land that interest us, to learn about it as much as possible about it before the big investment.

COST PER MONTH

For hoursing, food, communication, and transport, i say from 350$ to 650$ a month minimum, let me explain... The housing will not cost more the 600$ per month, all depends on how many people will show up, the rent will be split among us, it can cost you as little 20-50$ a month if enough people... Food is quite expensive, so if you want to eat awesome food like sapote or durian (if available), it might cost you up to 15$ a day, so 450$ a month. BUT!! If you decide to give a little effort, you'll easely find food around that nobody cares about, like coconut, rose apple, sugar cane, some jackfruit, many varieties of bananas, plantains, coconut palm heart, oranges, and many greens like local spinach, colllards, katouk or cranberry hibiscus, my favorite, etc... If you go this way it could cost you only 5$ a day or 150$ a month. I will buy a truck for everyone's groceries, at least for as many people as possible, and for looking at lands, going to the beach etc... So I will ask for gaz money, not much, but with other transports like bus's, I would say 100$ a month. Then for communication, its easy to spend 2-5$ a day on internet, so about 100$ a month.

ACTIVITIES

We hope to be as proactive as possible, and not just surf all the time...lol. Looking for land and building a garden will be a good part, but we need to get to know each other as much as possible. So we need to play together!! Any sport like soccer, frisby or even tag will be part of our days. I also will try to get a Risk board game, believe it or not this game worked very well last year to learn about some people... Any suggestions will be welcome, I bet we won't run out of ideas!

WHAT TO BRING

A tent that is well aired, or a large mosquito net with a tarp over it,  or a hammock with a mosquito net incorporated in it, with a tarp over it. Don't worry though there's barely any mosquitoes year round!  Some good hiking shoes, as light as possible, crocs and five fingers might get wormed out fast on the gravel roads and long hikes we take to look for land. A sleeping bag is not essential, a blanket can be plenty, but some summer sleeping bag can be very compact compared to a blanket... Outer then that you know the essential, tooth brush, cloths, ceramic knife, wooden spoon, etc...

TOPICS OF CIRCLES

The group will be divided into 2, the ones truly interested in becoming a resident of the community, and the ones whom are there simply to witness the event... the fist ones will have lots of circles to attend to, even home works!!  We will be talking mostly of the vision. We need to find out what is the core goal of every one, the long term one. Then we need to choose a legal entity, a cooperative probably, that is to buy land under many people's name, to protect each other financial and legally. This will be the toughest thing to accomplish. After we learned about each other and made a fancy document, one or two of us will have to go back with me to Montreal Canada to finalize the entity... Which will take about a month of work. Its important to understand the necessity of this, I really hope you did or will read Diana Leave Christian's book Creating life together... Our bible if you ask me... In there you will see what we will talk in details, and how we will talk, like with a facilitator, some of us are trained in this. Also we will talk about the different branches of the project, such as a animal shelter, a yoga center, a PRI (permaculture research institute), a healing center, etc..  Lots to talk about!

So I hope i gain your attention... And like I said, you can simply come as a witness, enjoying the fruits, the beach and the fruitarian company! No stress!

For more information please don't be shy, add me on Skype, I'm pom.vincent, and on Facebook I'm pom vincent, with no period in between.

Blessings!

Nice!! i heard from you from Francois, happy to connect with you!

I,m glad you did lots of searching like i did for a ideal tropical country to move into and decided on Costa-Rica, it will save a lot of chatting on why costa_rica!! i even put a whole section on the website for that matter... lol http://www.fruitariancommunity.tk/about-costa-rica.html

We'll be in CR around the 23rd or 28th of november, depending on how long it takes to drive from northern california to Talamanca... or DIamante Valley, lol.

You had in mind the creation of a community? fruitarian too? thats really rare!! been looking for interested people with enough balls to make a move for so long, and i havent found anything existing that seemed worth joining!! well theres Rawtreat not far from you with Ray, but temperature is way to hot and the land can't be owned by community members, and the land is all growned already, hard to implant a edible forest with a existing forest... thats the place i recommend people to go to (outer then with me...lol). Theres some existing projects in CR too, but really focused on money, like minimum of 600$ a month and the land is extremely expensive, like above the 20k per hectare. What we found is more like 4k per hectare... wich makes me want to ask you about the area your in, isnt it really expensive too? i remember searching your area and ended up running away from the crazy prices.... lol but if you found something good thats awesome! ill really have to come check it out.

yes chating about what you found will be interesting i'm sure. And i'm sure i'll enjoy talking about the place i found too! i talk about it like it was Zion or something, lol.

wanna talk vision a bit? you want it fully raw?

The gathering will be about being around like minded people, enjoying the fruity presence, and at the same time if people feel keen to the project they can step in as they feel. We'll have plenty of time to connect in person i hope!

you seen the spot my mom develops she burmed it all up planted 600 trees and already started a hexagon home. she'll be back in dec

honestly the idea of community/communilsm/unity(other than in disease/health) scares me but i could dig a union of egoists .

what spot? be back where? a union of egoist?

costa rica.   too often ive' seen hierarchy issues in communities .  but free individuals who find balance work together when it works and free to go separate when fini
but i find it important to have specific clear goals and i commend your desire to go where life can better find health and ease in nature

yes thats all very true, thats the objective on the long run, which will occur naturally i believe. A community well structured, with enough circles done properly, should avoid the hierarchy issue. 

For now the idea is to regroup fruitheads together and see how it goes, for fun and/or for planning. There might be more then one group emerging out of this gathering, i already know a fruitarian community there, not vegan at all though!! they have a nice vision, but not close to what i want for raising children, but others might find it very appealing!

I think i'll come to meet some fruit friends. When do you think is the best time in terms of fruits which are growing around the area and are for free? I'm living since 7 month now at Rio Claro, Rawtreat.

Sunshine- in which part of costa rica is the place of your mother and is she open to visitors?

its ok at any time for bananas, like rio claro. There can be mangoes around February, rose apple until February, durian might grow in random times... there can be durian 3 times a year there, thats why some raw friends of mine (Constentine and family) decided to move there, lol,  but they aint free at all unfortunatly. Jackfruits grow all year, and... well i think i'm missing a few there...

i hope to see! i might come visit ray for a few days before i go back to Talamanca, can't wait to see the improvements he and everyone made since i've been there, heard great things!

congratulations !!! No idea how you could make people to commit. Have been living here for almost 20 years on a farm welcoming high raw non smoking or alcoholic beverages consuming vegans, and it has not happened yet...
