The Monkey Farm
The Monkey Farm is a multifaceted non-profit organization in Playa Ocotal in northern Guanacaste. One of the ultimate goals of the Monkey Farm is to develop a completely self-sufficient and sustainable wildlife rescue center. Running a wildlife rescue center requires water, energy and food for the animals and the volunteers, and that’s where the farm comes in. The Monkey Farm’s organic farm uses a variety of permaculture techniques to grow food, not only for the farm and wildlife animals and the volunteers who live on the farm, but also for disadvantaged and homeless members of the local community. Listed on WWOOF, Workaway and Helpx, The Monkey Farm is dependent on local and live-in volunteers who want to help grow organic produce, care for rescued animals, tend to the farm animals and serve the local community.
