  • Description


    Hello we are young we are continuing with the typical of our fathers, where our ancestors migrated from the Andes to be rooted here in the central jungle, live in the Department of Junín and have an organic farm of coffee that we work all day with 5 hours per day in the treatment of coffee, we make plantations, coffee harvest that takes place from March to June , cleaning, cupping, developing a sustainable agriculture.

    We carry out work of agriculture where volunteers learn the artisan cultivation techniques and also use organic fertilizer (compus), where this we prepare it in our field with waste from the shell of the same coffee, to be used in the same.
    We try to stay in these lands since at this time young people migrate to the cities in search of better opportunities and leaving their lands, their identity, roots and culture.
    Our main activity is coffee, also grow bananas, yucca, pineapple.
    We live in a small town called Los Zorzales, here we do not have electricity live in nature without intervention of the technology it is a perfect place to get away from what both these tired, here breathe nature, have contact with nature and purificas your soul, accompanied by a rich coffee...
    Weekend leave to walk we visit waterfalls, caves, communities and learn the city of Pichanaki, among other places.

    hola, en este mes es el mes de la plantacion del cafe, nesecitamos jovenes que puedan echar una mano en las plantaciones de cafe y reforestacion de arboles maderables para tener un mundo sano y ayudar al planeta a combatir la contaminacion, somos jóvenes que venimos continuando con lo típico de nuestros padres , donde nuestros ancestros emigraron de los Andes para tener sus raíces aquí en la selva central, vivimos en el departamento de Junin y tenemos una finca orgánica de café que trabajamos todo los días con 5 horas diarias en el tratamiento del café, realizamos plantaciones,cosecha de café que se realiza de Marzo hasta junio, limpieza, catación, desarrollando una agricultura sostenible.

    Realizamos labores de agricultura donde los voluntarios aprenden las técnicas del cultivo artesanal y también utilizamos abono orgánico (compus), donde este lo preparamos en nuestro campo con residuos de la cascara del mismo café, para ser utilizado en la misma.
    Tratamos de permanecer en en estas tierras ya que en esta época los jóvenes emigran a las ciudades en busca de mejores oportunidades y dejando sus tierras, su identidad, raíces y cultura.
    Nuestra actividad principal es el café, también cultivamos plátanos, yuca, piña.
    Vivimos en un pueblito llamado Los Zorzales, aquí no tenemos electricidad vivimos en la naturaleza sin intervención de la tecnología es un lugar perfecto para escaparte de lo que tanto estas cansado, aquí respiras naturaleza, tienes contacto con la naturaleza y purificas tu alma, acompañado de un rico café....
