We can HELP.
HELPCA was developed to connect local vendors with local buyers to support each other as a community.
It was born in Costa Ballena to support our community during the COVID-19 crisis, with the goal of guaranteeing safe access to local, natural pesticide-free produce, while ensuring that our small businesses stay alive and thrive. We made it sustainable, eco-friendly and focused on what counts: the community we serve.
