Organic Farm:
Costa Rica is known for its cutting edge practices in environmental protection. Unfortunately, this does not carry over to food production and Costa Rica as a country is number one in the world for the use of chemicals (pesticides, insecticides, fungicides, and fertilizers) per kilo of food produced. The people of Costa Rica suffer from one of the highest occurrences of colon cancer in the world. ADE is using innovative, traditional, and simple techniques to help farmers have a different model for agricultural production. The farm is a living classroom, plus gives staff and visitors an opportunity to taste healthy and delicious foods, right from our property. 

Development/Missions Training Center:
At the focal point of ADE, what we are trying to do is to live out the biblical 
in the process of developing a center where people with a specific call from God to go and be a blessing to other communities are received, given room and board, and are taught how to reproduce the ADE model where ever they are called to go. This is absolutely free. We are excited to receive people from around the world and share best practices and lessons learned from mistakes of what we have learned since we began operation back in 2001, as we have run all of our projects and supported our staff without fundraising.  Are you called to go and be a part of the Great Commission? Or want to be of assistance to marginalized communities and are interested to know how to do it without fundraising? Come and partner with us!instructions that Jesus gave to go with nothing.

Creation Care Center:
Related with our efforts in organic farming and community development, is our Creation Care Center. The Center is dedicated to the study and practices of how to be better stewards of the resources and the environment around us. We offer many courses around the year concerning agriculture, environmental care, and specific biology courses concerning plants, insects, and birds. We are in the process of creating lab space to facilitate further research on the continental divide where our farm is located. In addition, we hope to have large dorm areas, common areas, a cafeteria, and teaching classrooms in order to host all the activities in support of the Creation Care Center.

Watershed Rehabilitation Project:
Amazingly enough, the dirtiest river of all of Central America exists in Costa Rica. ADE has created a platform to connect government, NGOs, and local people together. The Limpiemos el Río de Tárcoles website lays out the laws, history, and organizations involved with water quality parameters, as well as connecting local people together. ADE is currently developing a program called Los Guardianes. By educating and training local leaders and youth, "guardians" can practice sustainable lifestyles and conduct research on the watersheds they live in. This will create a community of passionate local leaders that cyclically train more and more people. Empowered people will inspire change and put the power into their own hands to develop healthier waterways in the country they love.

English Academy: 
Learning a second language gives a social-economic boost for people in Costa Rica. Our language academy uses small classes, hands on learning, and very affordable prices to help make the difference in peoples' lives. We offer courses and private classes to students of all ages - from young elementary students to amazing elders! We like to focus on forming relationships with our students and creating community to positively impact our students and the learning environment.
