Punta Mona Center for Regenerative Design and Botanical Studies
Southern Caribbean coast of Costa Rica
Our Mission

Punta Mona’s mission is, through the principles and practice of Permaculture and organic lifestyle, an alternative to the destructive practice of land use, loss of cultural heritage and community, depletion of our natural resources, decimation of biodiversity and rampant wastefulness taking place throughout Costa Rica and the world

Our Story

After witnessing a group of indigenous children sprayed with toxic chemicals, Stephen Brooks founded the Punta Mona Center. We are an 85 –acre, off-the-grid, beachfront, family owned, environmental education center, botanical collection, established permaculture farm and an eco-lodge, dedicated to regenerative ways of living. At Punta Mona we grow most of our own food organically, which includes hundreds of species of tropical fruits, vegetables, herbs, medicinal plants as well as bamboo and extensive native hardwood reforestation along with use of eco-technologies, to create a sense of community and are dedicated to educating learners of all ages and from all walks of life.

Our Future

We believe Punta Mona is a unique place and one that has much to teach about the things we take for granted, the power of community, imagination, equality and the beauty of living a simple, intentional life. Our future plans include an ‘Ecoversity’ that will welcome hundreds of eco-learners and educate our future leaders to return to their communities and be better prepared to meet and overcome the challenges facing our environment and all of humanity.
