Theosophical Center in Costa Rica
From Maria Orlich in San José, we received the following message regarding the plans for building a Theosophical Center in Costa Rica.
Members meet on the grounds where soon the Center will be constructed
The property for this project is located in San Pablo de León Cortés, about 70 km. from the capital, San José, at an altitude of 1,600 m., with a very pleasant weather. The property is surrounded by a forest of native oak trees which need to be protected, so only a portion of the land is suitable for construction; for now, local authorities have allowed 700 sq. m. for this purpose.
Wonderful vegetation in the forest
So far, no construction of buildings has been possible, but we have been busy with maintenance and cleaning.
We hope that, starting with 2012, we will be able to meet our goals of improving the roadway, planting more trees, and obtaining the basic water and power services.
