  • Description


    We are in our mid fifties enjoying a retired peaceful life surrounded by nature. Need basic help around the farm
    We enjoy growing a large variety of organic plants....fruits and vegetables.
    The Finca is close to Vilcabamba Ecuador and you will be living in your own one bedroom apartment.
    We need assistance with planting and general upkeep of the area around the finca as it is approximately 30 acres.
    Internet and transportation to town provided.
    All groceries will be provided and cooked meals can be shared based on diet requirements and your meal preferences.

    We do not have pets, but plan to get a couple of dogs

    We are learning Spanish but fluent in English , so if you want to learn English and about organic permaculture, this is going to be a great experience for you. Couples and families are welcome too.
