My time is finally up at Finca Luna Nueva and now, as I sit here in San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua, I can reflect on my three months spent in Costa Rica. It is amazing how fast time goes by; it felt just like yesterday that I was riding in a taxi up the road to FLN with a big smile on my face, excited to finally be in Costa Rica and ready to start my internship. I don’t even know where to begin summing up my experience.
I was able to learn and do many things that I probably would not have had a chance to do in many other places in the world. I was lucky enough to start my first couple of weeks planting biodynamic and organic ginger and turmeric. I was also able to eat a ton of both from the last harvest (I will definitely be making the turmeric dressing when I get back to the states). When I arrived I didn’t know much at all about biodynamics ( and most people don’t), but now I would easily be able to use biodynamic practices on my own (future) garden/farm.
