Welcome to Casa Sula, an alternative school in Costa Rica. It was founded by parents in a nearby Ecovillage along with the Orion Group from Ecuador. There are no blackboards, teachers, or homework, yet there are unlimited materials to learn from. The space is designed to work with children’s natural curiosity.
Got leftovers, but no friends to share them with? There’s an app for that! With OLIO you can list your surplus food and someone can come pick it up from you.
