Our Team

Tim Curtis

Executive Director

Tim came to Monteverde in 1981 to teach, eventually marrying and settling here. While he and his wife Helena raised their two sons, Tim spent many years as an administrator at Monteverde Friends School, worked as Communications Assistant and Coordinator of Educational Programs at the Monteverde Institute, and served on the board of both institutions. In addition, for nearly twenty summers he directed Journey's End Farm Camp in his native Pennsylvania.  He is strongly committed to sustainability through cleaner technology, reduced consumption, community-building, and a strengthened connection to the natural world.  When not at the Community Fund or working on his unfinished house, Tim loves to play folk music, read, and walk the roads and trails of Monteverde, including the daily 8km to and from work.
