I’m Mario a 12 year old boy who lives in an intentional community in Costa Rica sharing spaces and values with people from 24 different countries.
Here I have learned to understand how people with different opinions, cultures can collaborate better because of the difference of cultures, and expanded imagination!
I went to a non directive school in the jungle near to our community for 3 years and just moved to the city to attend a middle school with a personalized learning method, and loving it too!
My passion is everything that has to do with standing on a moving board on top of all kinds of surfaces: water, snow, cement, sand.
I love to surf, play guitar, make new friends and discovering new places and people.
A mom who wants to share emotions, knowledge, experiences and joy with her teenage son. Discovering together what else is possible while having fun and developing the next step in our relationship.
My primary goal in Mario’s formation has been to encourage him to be independent, to be himself and have the tools to navigate in a changing world with security and imagination.

Born and raised in a culture of self-reliance and wild-harvesting in Sitka, Alaska; Bradley Scott Farmer spent his youth alongside his father, fishing and exploring the bays and straits of Baranof Island in a 16-foot open skiff. It was then that he learned how to build shelters in the wilderness, and the art of subsistence. During the summer months he returns to his roots in Sitka, Alaska, where he continues to inhabit the Wilderness, building camps from which he hosts subsistence focused adventures alongside his wife, Costa Rican singer, entrepreneur and gourmet food enthusiast María Cardona Vaselli.
I live in the Green Mountains of Vermont where I spend much of time hiking, biking, and Nordic skiing. Exploring the mountains and surrounding wilderness, and the adventures that follow, are one of my top sources of fun and learning. My brothers and I are home schooled which allows me to have a nature-centric curriculum and ample time to play outdoors. I also enjoy playing the violin, reading, and playing a variety of different competitive sports. My favorite saying is “fun is good.”
My family and I live in the center of Vermont’s Green Mountains. The mountains have always played a significant role in my life. They have served as a classroom, a source of spiritual connectivity, and a training ground to develop both physical and mental fitness. The experiences that I have had in different mountain ranges and with various indigenous mountain cultures have collectively shaped my perspective and approach to life. Mountains encourage resilience, resourcefulness, and a level of self-sufficiency that lead to a sense of independence and freedom that spills over into all areas of life. Although I have been fortunate enough to climb in most of the World’s largest mountain ranges, I learned long ago that the same lessons and benefits can be found on most mountains.
