The Residency Program at the Mauser EcoHouse is all about providing a tranquil and inspirational space where artists can immerse themselves in their individual projects. Artists are encouraged to be self directed and pursue their own creative ideas. The program focuses on furnishing artists with luxury accommodations, ample work space and serene surroundings so that individual or group projects can be worked on and creativity can flourish.
There are 1.5 acres of lush, green space available for artists to use for various activities. The library is stocked with books on varied topics including sustainability, Costa Rican wildlife & plant identification. The holistic property is home to numerous indigenous fruit trees, edible plants, herbs, two banana circle composts, five swales and a working greenhouse. Heather, the on-site artist and EcoHouse Coordinator welcomes and delights in giving tours of the property's sustainable features, including medicinal and tropical plants.
The Mauser Harmony With Nature Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization committed to improving the quality of life on the planet.
