Los Higuerones Cooperativa is a volunteer-run, heart-led organization that is driven by our dedication to the mission of promoting economic, social, and cultural alternatives in cooperation with the community of the Osa Peninsula.

We are funded by the love and generosity of local and international donors who share their resources to fuel our work in this important bioregion.

Support Our Work

"Rural social issues are, in my opinion, some of the most forgotten and ignored by the government, by the entire system. Yet these are of utmost importance to a country since the rural aspect, the simplest, perhaps most ignorant and least prepared, is what sustains a nation and an economy.”


–Doña Eida, Local Business Owner and Producer, known fondly by many locals as "The Peninsula's Grandmother of Culture"

Contribute From Other Value Flows

At Los Higuerones, there are so many ways through which we can accompany each other on the road toward a more resilient economy that is in service to everyone. As we work with a multi-capital approach, we consciously draw on more than financial capital in the pursuit of our mission. Check out the other opportunities to support us below.

  • Gift your social capital by spreading the world about our mission as an ambassador. Actions, such as leaving reviews after booking activities, inviting friends to join the Saturday market and ordering the Cajas Verdes, following us on social media, and linking/commenting and sharing our content, etc.

  • Gift your time and energy digitally or in-person to support our work in a variety of ways.

  • Gift material capital, such as building materials, office equipment, furniture, appliances, etc. As a community-based group who is in touch with many families in need, we welcome all donations (in good shape and operational). If we cannot use donations on-site, we will pass them on to appropriate recipients. Check out our in-kind needs list to see how you can help.

  • Gift experiential capital by offering a workshop, skill-sharing mentorship, or by joining one of our regularly scheduled Manos Cambiadas activities.

  • Gift natural capital by donating or exchanging seeds and plants for our market or share excess harvests, any dry goods/food stuffs, or clean glass jars and bottles. Also, organic compost is very welcome and will be passed on to local farmers who are in need of better soil fertility.
