Tim O'Hara

My name is Tim O'Hara and I'm the founder, owner and director of the Rancho Mastatal Sustainable Education Center in Mastatal, Costa Rica.  Nestled against the virgin rainforest of La Cangreja National Park, or the past 12 years we have been hosting volunteers and interns from all over the globe; offering workshops in natural building, renewable energy, agroforestry, permaculture, indigenous skills and wilderness medicine; and providing amazing opportunities via our university, high school and middle school educational programs.  Renowned for it’s natural building and delicious culinary spreads of fresh homemade food, the Ranch provides visitors an opportunity to see permaculture principles in action. Our programs allow visitors to experience a rural Costa Rican community, delight in 325 acres of pristine forests and waterfalls, and participate in a working permaculture farm.
