About Rebecca Reiber

Hi there! I'm founding an EcoVillage in Panama and am looking for co-founders and long-term volunteers.

I came to Panama in 2005, fell in love with the people and the country and knew I was home. Since then, I've held a number of consulting positions, got a diploma in Cooperativism, a Master's in Sustainable Development, and most recently, I finally completed my PDC in 2017.

Since April 2018 I'm 100% dedicated to the 8th Life Panama EcoVillage Project (quit my 9-5). In 2012 I'd purchased a house that was transformed into Casa Ubuntu, our former shared living and working space. In addition, we have our Finca, 21ha of land in its natural state – a mix of rolling grasslands, highly eroded areas and forested gullies, escarpments and galleries along the river and stream. I moved to the finca in January, 2023, having built my home here and installed internet. Previously we built an access bridge, planted a 1/2Ha food forest garden, established swales, ponds and water systems, installed electricity, built the Rainbow Bunkhouse in our pioneer camp area with dry compost toilet, outdoor kitchen, and shower area, established annual vegetable and fruit production in our raised bed area, installed a well, and built a plant nursery and storage shed.

We're ready to receive volunteers and prospective co-founders at the bunkhouse, which sleeps 9-10 people, also boasting a covered deck to watch the sunsets.
