I am starting a farm in the Andes mountains a few miles north of Quito.
It's a hectare of land with dozens of fruit trees that need care.
I don't have living facilities yet so I am currently staying at an amazing permaculture farm close by, where I was volunteering until recently, and I go down to my property in the morning and hike back up the mountain for lunch.
I am looking for someone who would like to help me start and who is willing to camp.
Help with Eco Projects
DIY and building projects
Creating/ Cooking family meals
I am happy to have a language exchange with people who are learning Spanish.
I would like to practice French, Italian or German.
I am happy to talk about my country and culture, and I will be willing to show people around Quito or maybe even do some traveling to other towns and places in Ecuador.
There are oranges, lemons and avocado trees already in production, so I am looking for someone who is interested in working with fruit trees, maybe with some experience?
It would also be really good to have help with building with wood and/or Adobe, as I have not done much in that field but I need to learn.
I am a vegetarian who has the intention of trying raw veganism eventually.
I enjoy meditation and yoga, so people who share those activities would be specially welcome.
This host offers a language exchange
I've always liked learning languages and I have some training and experience in teaching Spanish as a foreign language.
For now, I have a tent for 2 people, and hope to build a teepee soon.
I can provide ingredients for breakfast and for cooking one meal a day.
There are many birds around and even an eagle nest nearby.
There is a town no too far from the farm and also a nice viewpoint up the mountain.
Transport from the farm to the bus stop in town can be arranged.
