A residential village, destination spa resort, organic farm, educational institute and more, Rise is breaking ground on their vision to create an interconnected community in Costa Rica.
With a diverse food forest and reforestation project, Rise has planted around 5,000 food-bearing trees of over five hundred species. An estimated 15,000 native trees have been planted as well, the first phase in a plan to reforest more than 20% of the project’s 800 acre land.
Building in compliance with the Living Building Challenge; a stringent green building protocol, Rise hopes to become a prototype for regenerative resorts and communities alike.
