Brooks identified the problems facing small farmers and communities in Central America and Costa Rica and wanted to present possible solutions. Punta Mona, founded in 1997 grows over 200 varieties of tropical fruits, nuts and spices, produces all its electrical needs from solar panels and obtains methane gas from the septic system to fuel the kitchen.

The first project, La Ecovilla, is a 45-acre community featuring a slow sand filtered water supply system, “Living Systems” waste disposal, alternative energies and permaculture and organic food supplies.
