The first week this past May the local college of Santiago received the vice minister of education and our congresswoman with cheers as they came out to give us a presentation of the new college.

Santiago's new college is now scheduled to begin construction this coming December 2012.

The entire experience with Mr. Jorge has been a huge blessing to me. From the first time we met when he and his wife were considering buying in Monte Verde until the other night when he brought his family and another couple of friends out to our place for a steak dinner our relationship has been an inspiration.

Mr. Jorge is the owner of a supermarket in San Isidro. He has totally captured the vision I (we) have for Monte Verde! First of all Mr. Jorge enjoys everything he does and this allows him to see a lot of things from a positive perspective. He is completely thrilled taking his 2.5 acres from brush and tropical jungle to what it is today!

One of the things you can see in the valley below from Jorge's cabin is 25 acres of recently constructed green houses that Del Monte has built with the intent of building a total of 175 acres under roof. They are now growing all kinds of vegetables in these climate controlled buildings for export.

Besides this they are also moving their pineapple processing plant from Hawai down here to Volcan which is just below Monte Verde and Santiago Springs. They hope to have all set up and ready to go within the next 24 mo. This is huge for our local industry! Between the green houses and the processing plant there will be employment for around 1,600 people!

Knowing now that what we take in through our senses affects the way we see and feel about life, now is our chance to become more aware and intentionally pay attention to what we are ingesting. Instead of thinking of all the things we need to do today, take a moment to deliberately choose to hold that warm cup and attend to how it makes your hands feel and the thoughts and emotions that arise alongside it.

I really appreciate hearing from the Southern C.R. newsletter readership and last month I was blessed by a request from a couple (Gregg and Cheryl Butler) from Southern California’s on more information on organic coffee farms in our region here in El Valle de El General.
