International Community Forming
Calling visionaries. Unique opportunity to become a resident and steward of one of the world’s last tropical rainforests. Hundreds of acres of pristine tropics in only accessible by boat. Located on the River Esquinas, Golfo Dulce, Costa Rica.

Our vision is a practical and economically viable use of the property, raising crops, producing commodities, running Eco-tours combined with a School of Eco-Sciences as we partner with locals to produce a model society of sustainability.

MissionShare: is a timeshare with a mission.
 Rather than buying into a typical dead end purchase of land or timeshare consider the power of synergy as we partner with locals to produce commodities that actually get you a return on your investment.  It’s a timeshare that pays for itself over time.  Your investment will be used to 1) build beautiful, sustainable housing for you and a local caretaker 2) develop the parcel using Permaculture principles to produce crops and commodities. 3) provide food and water security for you and your family.

About Rancho Rio Esquinas
The property was once owned by Hollywood elite and was purchased by an entrepreneur about 12 years ago.  It is located right on the Rio Esquinas as it flows into the Golfo Dulce, Southwest Costa Rica. Portions of the property is planted in Cacao and the remainder meanders from sea level into high mountain ranges of untouched, pristine rainforest. The present owner is desirous that the property fulfill its potential without sacrificing its purity and beauty and he has given our Non-profit the management of the property so as to realize a Utopian ideal in its development.

Green investors welcome.
Looking for conscious investors who would like a healthy return on their monies while protecting the planet and changing the lives of the local people.  Create your homestead and create a legacy.

TimeShare and Permanent residents welcome
Spend a week or more a year as you see your vacation money promote a happier, sustainable world or come and live full time and become an active member of a unique society.  Bring you skills is agriculture, building, permaculture, yoga, health science, tourism and marketing and fill a niche market in Green tourism or work-to-earn residency.

Green Tea Plantation
We are presently looking for a limited number of investors for the creation of Costa Rica’s first Green Tea Plantation.

Who we are: Peace trail International is the community service and training arm of the nonprofit 501 C 3 Logos Academy Inc. with a goal of uniting the local community and empower them through education to live sustainable lives; helping them develop skills in food and water security, alternative forms of energy and transportation, urban agriculture, and entrepreneurialism in a local market. Tourism provides the basis for people from around the world to receive training for skills in sustainability and then use those skills in acts of community service.
The Experience: History and the future meet for a memorable moment aboard our floating Hostel. Our Eco-adventures are educational tours designed to get you up close and personal with Florida wildlife and combine that with small town cultural experiences in main street America, and/or volunteer opportunities to serve on a team bringing help to the aged and disabled and then get hands on constructing futuristic systems for food, water and economic independence in the community . Peace Trail International is sponsored by Logos Academy Inc.
The Vision: The Traveler/student/apprentice meets the tour guide/ teacher/mentor, the entrepreneur meets the needs of the community as we develop and teach sustainable models of transportation, food and water production and manufacturing. We are a mobile university with classrooms right on the water and in the streets, homes and businesses of the community. We mobilize travelers/volunteers/students of all age groups into short term missions focused on recycling, backyard food and water production, alternative fuels, Vermiculture, cross-cultural Homestays, and Community service. Our goals are to reconnect with each other, the Spirit, and the local economy
Support : Peacetrail is the community service and training arm of the nonprofit Logos Academy Inc.  Support for Peace Trail International comes from membership fees, fundraisers and donations. Logos Academy Inc. is a 501C3 and all contributions are tax deductible. 
Goals:
Long term Goals
The 200 mile project; a working model
1) To develop a 200 mile network of travel, agriculture, manufacturing and service via a locally sustainable mode of transportation by water and by land.
                By water: A vessel, cargo and crew, without the use of fossil fuels will regularly sail a 200 mile route north and south along the St. Johns River, running from Jacksonville, FL to Sanford, FL.  The vessel will be a virtual floating university of ecological and social experimentation in sustainable sciences. The Prime directive is to be Missionaries of change, Boy and Girl Scouts from the future, creating change thru acts kindness by establishing Outposts called “Aldeas” along the St. Johns river. Some of these Aldeas will be floating barges built by Logos Academy right on the St. Johns river and others will be farms and homes of those who join us and participate in our networking vision. Aldeas will sleep students and tourists, grow food, gather recyclables, manufacture goods, and educate and serve the community.
By land: 100 miles east and west on a horizontal axis intersecting with each Aldea on the St. Johns river we will spread inland from the St. Johns via vehicles powered by alternative fuels and human power and establish inland Aldeas and perform acts of kindness (see TKS)
Objectives: 1) Local self-reliance. 2) Community service 3) Research and Education 4) Unity and Synergy
 
Short term goals
1)      Launch “Ambassador” the Floating Hostel
Ambassador is our floating Hostel and primary base of operations on the water. The idea behind the Ambassador is to provide living accommodations’, cooking facilities, and sleeping quarters for volunteers and guides to operate and promote the goals of Peacetrail upon the St. Johns River, FL while an Aldea is being established. The Ambassador will be replaced by the Permanent Aldea once it has been built and staffed and then be moved to a new location to establish another Aldea.
2)      Establish Aldeas
Aldeas (settlements in Spanish) are locations providing sleeping quarters, cooking facilities, and research space and are our local contact points for volunteers who will be traveling on Peacetrail performing acts of kindness and transformation in the local community. Our first Aldeas will be built on the water as floating platforms spaced a distance of approximately 20 miles on the St. Johns River. From the location of each Aldea volunteers will work the local community performing acts of education and community service.
a)      Social transformation. Canvas literature educating and encouraging residents to work together for change in our environment, economy and fellowship and to participate in our programs for recycling and food and water production.
b)       To collect organic waste for recycling into organic fertilizer and fish food.
c)       Look for opportunities to serve: widow, disabled, Vet, and poor in the areas of general help and maintenance and for creating Eco-home systems focusing on food and water security and in creating income through cottage industry.
3)      Launch MissionShare 
MissionShare is our Timeshare with a mission. Like a Timeshare, people can purchase time on our floating hostel, boats, or Aldeas which range from two days to two weeks per year. MissionShares monies are used to help promote the goals of Peacetrail. MissionShares can be traded or given away to be used by anyone who supports the goals of Peacetrail (some conditions apply) Unlike a timeshare, people who purchase a Missionshare are expected to participate in volunteer work in the promotion of Peacetrail goals and vision.

Where do we live? How do we live?

Finding a way to live in this world that has a foundation of health and peace and equilibrium with nature and naturally sustainable economic principles is incredibly important now more than ever.  A smaller footprint, wise/ just stewardship of the earth and her resources, conscious investments in our local economy, community and educating the next generation just some of our goals at MissionShare.

Choosing a Green Community: Missionshare
Sometimes is easier to just keep things the way they are. Get ours and get out. Fall right  back into the same old model we had success with in the past. But some of us our hearing the call of a different drummer.  There is a lot of room for improvement in our present lives of consumer ignorance, suburban disconnect and the threat of a failing economy that could leave us completely unprepared .  Buying into the stucco repeat -home design, lawns and paved streets model of community imported from America to the world ,is a bad idea. 

This is a vacation time that far from the classic tour of theme parks and crowded tourist traps. Invest your time and travel money in  an experience in world change.
