Brigitte is the founder and general director of the farm. She is involved in and knowledgable about all parts of the community. "Bri" has a background in social work, having lived in Cuba and Guatemala to represent people in need during violent times. She came to Costa Rica searching for peace and found the beautiful plot of land which she developed into the community now known as Finca Agroecologica La Flor. When Bri bought the land, it was mostly cow pasture. Passionate about having a positive impact on the environment, she reforested 20 acres and has maintained trails for everyone to enjoy. The remainder of the property has been dedicated to forming a community with a local focus. Her vision has steered the community to practice organic agriculture, use medicinal plants before going to the doctor, and maintain a diverse ecosystem for the benefit of all residents and visitors.
