Handmade Furniture Project in Costa Rica

Picture 1

We are heading off to Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica tomorrow to support the work of Kevin Peterson and the Eco Preservation Society.  Many thanks to Rayna Levin of EPS for doing such a stellar job of helping us with our arrangements for travel and volunteering. 

We'll be making Vermont Woods Studios furniture for a school in an eco-community called Portasol in Portalon.  We're excited to be able to help with this important conservation project and to learn about the many other projects Eco Preservation Society is doing to help save the rainforest.

Hopefully we'll have Internet access and be able to blog and tweet as we go.  Will keep you posted!

She is a CEO who brakes for salamanders, has bottle-fed rescued squirrels and spent her vacation building furniture for a rural school in Costa Rica. She believes in the future and in the people who will build it. A former distance-learning professor at Tulane University with a master’s in environmental health & safety, she turned an interest in forest conservation and endangered species into a growing, local business. She delivers rainforest statistics at breakneck speed, but knows how to slow down and appreciate the beauty of a newly finished piece of heirloom furniture.
