#010 Meghan Casey of Chilamate Rainforest Eco Retreat: Community Outreach Creating Regional Resilience

May 17, 2021 | 0 comments

This interview, with Meghan Casey of the Chilamate Rainforest Eco Retreat, is the kind of conversation that can change the fabric of a project’s relationship with its region and neighbors.

We discuss community outreach projects that anyone can do, including:

  • teaching English
  • promoting cooking classes and
  • homestay/farm stay experiences

for guests to have authentic cultural experiences with the locals.

We also talked about organizing cacao and coffee tours, raising children in such a work-life situation, and so much more!  

If you’ve wondered how to effectively provide value to your outer community, create goodwill, and foster regional resiliency, this episode is for you!

We've prepared a PDF to offer you a shortlist of some things that you can do to create goodwill and resilience in your community.

You can download it right here.
