  • Description

    Description

    This is a permacultural project located in Manabí-Ecuador. Its owners Otmar and Brunella have lived in Ecuador since October 2015 and manage several organic agriculture projects. Together with Agroturismo Rancho Mila in San Vicente (workingplace), the personal project in Cañas and Piquigua (Canton Junín - Manabi - Ecuador), Brunella and Otmar administer also two permacultural fincas, both located in Piquigua.

    The Bamboo House in Piquigua/Junin is designed to receive visitors and tourists. In turn, the house has an independent apartment designed to accommodate a person / couple or small family who are willing to take care of the house and maintain the beautiful gardens designed with love.

    It is important that the caregiver is able to enjoy nature and be willing to relax with the sound of the river, the song of the birds and the howling of the monkeys. The farm has large plantations of fruits and tropical species, so the inhabitant can enjoy long walks and freely consume the fruits of the farm. At this time we are not providing your food but you can eat all the exotic fruits that you find in the property ... and there are a lot.


    Es un proyecto permacultural situado en Manabí-Ecuador. Sus propietarios Otmar y Brunella viven en Ecuador desde octubre del 2015 y administran varios proyectos de agricultura orgánica ubicadas en San Vicente (Agroturismo Rancho Mila) y en Junin/Piquigua.

    La Casa de Bambú en Piquigua/Junin esta diseñada para recibir visitantes y turistas. A su vez, la casa cuenta con un apartamento independiente destinado a hospedar a una persona/pareja o familia pequeña que estén dispuestos a cuidar la casa y mantener los hermosos jardines diseñados con amor.

    Es importante que el/la cuidador(a) sea capaz de disfrutar de la naturaleza y estar dispuesto a relajarse con el sonido del río, el canto de los pájaros y el aullido de los monos. La finca cuenta con amplias plantaciones de frutas y especies tropicales, por lo que el habitante puede disfrutar de largos paseos y consumir libremente los frutos de la finca. Actualmente nosotros no proveemos comida pero pueden comer todo las frutas que encuentran en el terreno ... y hay muchos.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The nature of the tropical semi-humid forest is already the best experience. However, the experience is complemented by (voluntary) learning of the permaculture and agroecology techniques that we practice at the Farm. In addition, you can experience daily tasting of the gastronomic variety of the area (if you wish).

    Certain people in the community make their own handicrafts from the area, which constitutes another possible element of the culture to learn.

    La naturaleza del bosque semihumedo tropical es ya la mejor experiencia. Sin embargo, la experiencia se complementa con aprendizaje (voluntario) de las técnicas de permacultura y agroecología que practicamos en la Finca. Ademas, puede experimentar de degustar diariamente de la variedad gastronómica de la zona (si asi lo desea).

    Ciertas personas de la comunidad realizan artesanías propias de la zona, lo que constituye otro posible elemento de la cultura para aprender.
