COSTA RICA : March 26 - April 2

Day 5 : March 31 : The White City - Community Farm in Liberia , Agricultural Tour @ La Flor

Probably my favorite day of our trip.  We learned and experienced directly the agricultural advancements the EARTH is making in the community and on their own soil.  We learned what factors are of concern and most important (wind, soil, water, sun, pests).  They demonstrated what steps they are taking to improve their techniques without compromising environmental / personal health and profit.
