Three Seeds not only provides employment to many locals, it also works in a close partnership with its local rainforest community, El Brujo de Rio Nuevo, especially by supporting a local women's groups and ecological education activities at the school and offering programs for the local school children on the farm. Since 2004, it has also hosted dozens of volunteer groups to carry out or support projects from building public bathrooms in the town's community center and a home for a homeless family.
From 2006-2015, Three Seeds offered an after school program on their farm for the local school children to learn English through gardening, play and art. This program was very successful and dozens of local children learned English and sustainable living practices thanks to their participation.
