In 2017, we launched an ambitious and innovative project to develop a community garden in Matapalo. The project, called “Jardín de la Costa” in honor of Matapalo’s nickname, is a collaborative project relying on the invaluable contributions of local volunteers coupled with the expertise and assistance of agronomists, water management experts, landscape architects and professional contractors.
The project is a community project led by Futuro Brillante with the support of the ASADA of Matapalo and the ADI of Matapalo. The initial development of the garden was also part of high school student Manuel Ballestero’s Creativity, Action, Service (CAS) project at La Paz Community School.
Anyone who would like to volunteer in the garden is encouraged to do so by contacting us at 4700-5021 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
