    The coffee season is about to start, volunteers needed for April 20-July . You need to have basic Spanish. This is an organic coffee farm, in the Intag Valley, Ecuador. The temperature is warm but not hot as we are in a mountain valley of 1500 meters. There is a vegetable garden and 4,000 coffee plants. The main coffee picking is May-July but there is work year round.
    We are on a main road with bus service, short distance to the Nangulvi Hot Springs, Wariman Archelogical site, rafting and biking. We have built and sponsor a distance education school for young adults. You will work there on Thursday.
    Work consists of weeding, picking, cultivating, watering
    Coffee and the gardens. Cleaning and feeding the pigs. Helping with the kitchen in the school, construction of small houses for local people.
    Because of a recent problem there will be no drinking or smoking on the farm.
    There is internet at the house, we have a phone. I live on the farm and lodging is either in my house or in the volunteer house if not occupied. You will need sleeping bags, towels, pillow, work gloves, rubber boots (can be purchased for $10 at the local store) Food is supplied for 5 days a week, vegetable garden available. You will be expected to work a maximum of 6 hours a day and cook some of your own food and wash your own clothes supplying your own soap we have a machine !! and you will need toilet paper and towels and a flashlight.
    I speak English and I am from Canada, but also speak Spanish.

    We are a coffee and pig farm. You will pick and weed coffee, sort coffee. Clean and feed pigs (rubber boots). You are welcome to stay 7 days a week but would be expected to help with daily chores on your days off if you are staying at the farm, but meals are not provided, only 5 days a week, but you are welcome to cook your own food on days off. . Otavalo is 2 hours by bus, and is a great party town if you like a weekend break from the farm. Internet 7-9 at night.

    The distance education school needs help on Thursday with cooking and washing dishes.
