The Healthy Lifestyle Retreat Center, Farm of Life, is opening 2 new guest rooms - Casa Mono and Casa Coco. In this video, we interview our head employee Henry, who took the lead on the construction of these 2 cabins. Gorgeous cabins, made of cedar and teak with glass walls facing the epic views. We hired from the village and harvested wood from our neighbors farm - local and sustainable! In this video, construction is 90% complete. Casa Mono and Coco will open for guest reservations for Dec 1, 2013. Pura Vida!

Chupo de Ojo is yet another type of stingless honey bee introduced to Farm of Life. 2 kinds are given new homes at the farm. One kind is small, black and very tranquil. The other is more aggressive, but still stingless. Both are very small and get the nectar from small flowers that larger insects can access. Both of these nests were saved from old or fallen trees, and given new homes.

Melapona Stingless Bees at Farm of Life, Costa Rica

by JodyCalvi January 8, 2014 | 2:24PM
Farm of Life has several types of the Stingless Melapona Bees on the farm, and in this video we introduce another 2 types - the Aragle and the Cuelo de Whey. These are their Spanish names and we don't know the English translation. One eats the pollen and nectar of the Noni fruit. Noni is a super-medicinal superfruit, so imagine how healthy honey produced of Noni will be!! The other is a unique hive in that the bees prefer a cooler environment and keep their nests close to the ground and under trees. See the honeycomb inside the hive and the sacred geometry too!
