Alegria Village Costa Rica Land for Sale – About the Community
In 2018, having completed the nearby 40-lot La Ecovilla development, permaculture expert Stephen Brooks, his father Norman and investors purchased this former cattle ranch and began building what is now Alegria Village.
Today, infrastructure including roads, water, fiber optic internet, community gardens, yoga shala, community hub and swimming pool are complete, with professional managers and staff overseen by a homeowners’ association. Residents have formed active circles, advising and organizing many areas of governance, parenting, resilience, architecture and building, and recreation. Whatever your interest, you will find collaborative neighbors.
Important foundational values include:
- Earth Care – We are earth stewards
- People Care – We take care of each other
- Fair Share – We are each a part of the whole
- Future Care – We are Peaceful Warriors in service to the Planet
These values allow us both to “do good” in relations with the local area and among each other and “do well” based on solid legal and financial foundations.
The community has received broad recognition – for example, Zac Ephron’s Netflix series, “Down to Earth” featured Alegria Village and a visit to the local Casa Sula school. Zac, wellness expert Darin Olien and Stephen Brooks also traveled to Punta Mona, Stephen’s Caribbean coast permaculture education center.
Using community design guidelines reflecting the highest permaculture and regenerative standards, top international architects and craftsmen have completed and are designing and building unique and diverse homes. When you contact me, we can get in touch for more information about the guidelines and home designs.
