Moringa….the Food of the Future !!

We heard about Moringa ( Moringa oleifera ) recently, but the infos we get are so incredible that we immediately got involved..we bought some seeds and planted them, after one week we had the first little plantules in our pots and from last week we transplanted them in the ground, for our first experiment with it….

We will post pictures of this first attempt with this incredible plant soon, in the while, if you are thinking to became the Owner of a Tropical Micro Farm, start seeing this video, and we we will talk about a piece of land that would work for you, here, in the Osa Peninsula

Hydroponic is the perfect complement to MicroFarming

Hydroponic is the perfect complement to MicroFarming

Even if we, in the Osa Peninsula, have conditions so favourable for traditional and Organic production of vegetables and fruits, it is a good idea to integrate these system with an Hydroponic or, even better, an Acquaponic  system, for to produce that specific vegetable that could have problems with the natural conditions and need a special environment in term of PH and Nutrients that only Hydroponic can obtain.

At the level of the sea, the temperature is a quite hot, for some variety of vegetables, but we need to experiment on them for to see which one is the most adaptive to these conditions, and exclude the ones that definitely can’t develop in a good way.

In the last months we started this experimental small project of Hidroponic, using the NFT technique, for to learn about the details of this vegetable production way, and define which product are the more compatibles with this environment.

for example we found that the variety of lettuce we choose for to start the proves, is not working finer, due to the high temperature, that push it to try to produce seeds too soon, obligating the plants to grow more vertical instead to create a big head, but the new batch of a different variety, will be fine.

So, now we are refining the technique and the results are really interesting, demonstrating that thnis technique is available for everyone, and that can produce great vegetables in this environment.

 

Our experience will be at disposition of everybody wil be interested in starting an Hydroponic project in ine of the lands apt for to create a Micro Farm for personal food production and, why not, for market too.

 

 

Be free to ask for any information about this specific Micro Farm area and the land we have available fro to start your Food Production Farm in the Paradise of the Osa Peninsula.

 

Fresh Water Spring is like Gold for a Micro Farm Project

Clear, Fresh, and Sweet Waters……

Italian Poet Francesco Petrarca’s poem for her beloved Laura, contains the spirit, the essence, of what we feel when in presence of a natural spring, in the middle of the pristine Rainforest of the Osa Peninsula, even if we don’t know which beautiful young woman took a bath in it before our discover.

In the whole world, Pure Fresh Water is becoming rarer every day more, and the access to this precious, indispensable resource is more and more difficult, at the point that there is more than one ” Prophet ” of the next future that is talking about ” Water Wars” that will start soon for the control of this liquid gold.

It is true that, from some year already, big financial and industrial groups had took the control of several local brands that are bottling and selling fresh water for human feeding , moving, their range of interest to the public water services that feed the principal metropolis of the world, creating, often, strong opposition from the population that would have this resource managed by local or state government, for to avoid the monopolistic affect over a resource that is absolutely indispensable for Human life.

The same Importance, or more, has the presence of Fresh Water for a Micro Eco Farm in a Tropical Area as the Osa Peninsula in the South Pacific side of Costa Rica.

Here the abundant rains help the Micro Farmer for a lot of different cultivation, including rice, that doesn’t need to be planted in flooded soil, as it happens in most of the world , but several other crops, need water even, and specially, during the dry season.

So, for to be sure that your micro Farming Project will be a success, the most important feature that a Small Farm must have is the presence of enough water that is available from a spring that is inside the same land, just for to be sure to have a full control over this resource.

A good Fresh Water Spring, would produce enough water for the house needing as tap water for the kitchen, the shower and W.C.,  the animals present in the Micro Eco Farm, and , of course, the irrigation of the vegetables crops that will be the Organic Food on the wise Micro Farmer .

The right time for to check the abundance of the Fresh Water you will have at your disposition in your Micro Eco Farm, is during the dry season, when Fresh Water Spring are not fed by superficial waters produced by the rain. If you have a good flow of water during the months from Decembre to April, in the Osa Peninsula, you can be sure that you will never have Water Problems, and that your Fruits and Vegetables will grow quick and tasty.

 

The Presence of a Perennial Fresh Water Spring in a Micro Eco Farm, often offers natural ponds, carved by the flow of the water in the last thousand years, in the soil of the rainforest that covers the hill sides, ponds that, often, have high end design shapes and surfaces surprisingly smooth, that are perfect natural bath tubs, great for anti-stress and revitalizing ablutions.

Just Imagine the Natural Carved Tubs you can see in the last two images  well cleaned from stones and debris, just with a fine sandy bottom, with some Tropical Hardwood deck around, the flavours  of the tropical flowers of the rainforest, the sound of the Pure Fresh Water running and falling from one pond to the next, an Ice box full of a fresh punch made with your preferred Organic Tropical Fruit , a clean towel waiting, and you, yes you, taking a bath in this paradise like spot……incredible???

……the incredible thing is that this spot, the almost 6 acres around, the sturdy wooden house made with Tropical Hardwoods, 4 acres of good soil already planted with bananas, Coconut, Yucca, Mangos, Avocados and other fruit, are available for less than the cost of a FWD SUV….!!!!!!
