Restoring Our Watershed (ROW) is a non-profit organization that has been active in the Nandamojo River Valley of Guanacaste, Costa Rica since 2001. We are working to create a “green valley” with a healthy ecosystem and abundant opportunities for people to live and prosper. Our efforts are focused in two areas:
- Reclaiming the health and resiliency of natural areas identified as critically damaged or threatened. An estimated 5-10% of the watershed has been targeted for environmental restoration.
- Reinvigorating local, sustainable food production to create green jobs.
This two-pronged approach reflects our belief that environmental restoration is not enough. Thousands of people live and work in the Nandamojo watershed. Our programs seek to protect our natural resources while cultivating a vibrant, resilient economy.
News from the Valley
A group of 14 high school students from Washington International School will be visiting the Nandamojo watershed in mid-June, spending a week in the area as part of a service-learning trip. ROW will be hosting the group, and is coordinating with the Centro de Nutrición (CEN) in Paraíso to have the students install an organic community garden on the facility’s small grounds, pictured below.Click to read more
