Psychological wellbeing and solidarity amongst people is in part underpinned by cultural roots, and people's cultural roots consist of where they situate themselves - not simply geographically, but culturally, in language, customs, days of celebration, music, cuisine, and the many other things which equally testify to collective spirit and experience. The Sustainability Demonstration Center provides a venue for and facilitates cultural events to help preserve these hallmarks of community, and encourage them to thrive. Also, by drawing national and international visitors to Guacimal, the Center sustains genuine cultural engagement and insight through the many memorable interactions between visitors and local people. 

A core example includes the Center's role in establishing and supporting the autonomy of the local Feria de Guacimal, which offers classic Tico food prepared in a traditional manner, iconic marimba music, fresh organic local produce, and a space for communal celebration.
