In the short term, many are asking the practical question of how they might sustain their life economically in Florestral and Costa Rica. Here are some of the ways we hope to support our residents.
* Sound of light Foundation (SOL), Florestral hosting center and other (future) projects will be motivated to hire community residents. * We live in an area surrounded by more communities and a large population of like-minded
people. There are 2 markets a week where goods can be sold and a group where residents can find income by providing services to the wider community. In Florestral itself we have a shop where guests and residents can sell and buy goods.
* The needs in Florestral are very different than in society and especially than in the city. From construction to taxes, the cost of basic subsistence is very low.
In the long term, a part of our concept is to introduce a local currency to be used inside the community and in the valley around. We are starting with an online platform that will help us to reduce the need to rely on the mainstream unstable & corrupted monetary system in our day to day lives.
This will come into action soon, as the hosting center and SOL will start to pay workers in local currency and accept payments for our services as well. We wish creative abundance for all Florestral residents and will encourage and support everyone as much as possible to allow personal visions to manifest.
If you have any questions, comments or thoughts on the subject of employment, please feel free to ask or start a discussion!
I am curious about what the guidelines would be for holding workshops.
