True Nature Education sprouted out of the True Nature Community, which was co-founded by Joshua and Luna Canter in 2003. The community, based out of the village of La Florida, Costa Rica, stands upon 30 acres overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Throughout the four years, True Nature's education programs were established on the land within this community.
During this period of time, Joshua and Luna also co-founded the CREER Service Organization. CREER, which means “to believe” in Spanish, was an offering of gratitude for the incredible support, generosity, and hospitality that the native Costa Ricans provided upon our arrival in the county and their village.
Community, Education, and Service have been at the core of True Nature’s values since its inception and continue to be the driving force of our operation.
