Natural Building Courses 2021

Next course: January 4th - 10th

More 2021 dates coming soon!

Come to EcoMaste and experience the abundance of life in the jungle. Here you will have an opportunity to commune with nature, ground yourself, enjoy our nature trails, cascading river, harvest fresh foods from the property, vibrant delicious plant based meals, and learn the skills you need to build with bamboo as well as natural materials.


Our goal is to give students a transformational and regenerative education so that they can be empowered to create a lifestyle rooted in sustainability and collaboration with nature. Learn from world renown Bamboo Master, artisan craftsman, with over 35 years of experience and founder of Bamboo School CR, Rodolfo Saenz, and international master founder of Natural Building CR & Bambu Mundo, Trey Abernethy.

We will be building a small dome cabin using natural construction techniques utilizing bamboo, adobe and its combinations. 


If you would like to become an apprentice, we have 3-12 month programs which includes education, lodging, and all meals.

Syntropic Farming

Full day Immersion
 Whether you’re familiar with permaculture or just joining the movement, we will share a wealth of knowledge and practical tips that when applied, reward our energies and investments with a bountiful harvest, joy, and well-being. Syntropics is the newest branch of Tropical Permaculture and could be described as “Biointinsive-Regenerative Food Forestry”, particularly powerful for turning depleted lands and ecologies into thriving, productive systems faster than previously thought possible. Please ask us about how to arrange for a full one-day intensive class at your land, designed for current and aspiring property owners, as well as travelers who are called to nurture nature along their journeys. 


Stay tuned 

Join us for a day workshop of Syntropic Farming, this class will take about 5 hours with Travis Britzke. We recommend to watch the video above to familiarize yourself. Hope to see you here next month.


Dates coming up @ EcoMaste in Fuente Verde

Many systems across the globe are failing in all different areas, especially in addressing climate change and therefore, we live in disorder with Mother Earth. During these times of isolation, we've had the opportunity to go "back to the order" as the Mamos say. Starting from within and taking care of our temple (body). By treating ourselves as sacred beings and offering unconditional love, all the relationships we have starting with family, follow this value system. Using discernment in choosing what we consume, information, experiences, as well as what we express in each moment are all contributing factors to finding harmony with Self and the Earth. We must teach that order so we can restore our values, principles, and create sustainable system structures collectively.

Stay tuned for future Events, Workshops & Gatherings. Please subscribe to our Newsletter.

Our focus is to bring communities, families and individuals back into harmony and simplicity. We do this through workshops, classes, retreats, and ceremonies with themes around rebuilding our foundations of living a balanced life. We host, practice and collaborate with the community to teach the best healing arts, permaculture, sustainability, natural building, nutrition, herbalism and spirituality of the region. Be part of a community movement rooted in care for the planet that embodies love and compassion for all beings on Mother Earth. 

We are all one. 

In 2016, the cofounders of EcoMaste visited together the Diamante Valley and since, they fell in-love with the majestic mountain. A few years later, after coming and going to Costa Rica, they felt a strong pull to root down in the area to share their passion and skills with other brothers and sisters. At the beginning of 2020, Jose felt a call to learn about natural building, specifically bamboo and timber framing. After his courses he was admiring the Diamante Waterfall and reached out to his indigenous brother Kandymaku from the Arhuacos Tribe which is part of the Teyuna Collective (four indigenous tribes from the Sierra Nevada in Colombia).
