  • Description


    We are a center which teaches classes and offers internships for those interested in learning more about conscious living. This includes the evolution of consciousness of our species and planet, learning about zero Eco footprint living, and participating in community building. We have now acquired a property, 2.5 hectares, 30 minutes from the city, where we will develop our intentional community and eco resort. We have many types of projects for our volunteers including gardening, greenhouse work, construction, painting, cooking, child care, and firewood production.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are a couple from North America, me, and South America, my wife, with our daughter, now 3 1/2. We live in the countryside with a rich culture of indigenous surrounding us and a small pueblo nearby. But we are less than an hour from the city by bus, so our volunteers get to experience two worlds of Ecuador.

  • Help


    We offer a variety of work projects including gardening (weeding, watering and harvesting), cooking, child care, firewood production, and special eco projects. We ask for 4 hours work each day, 5 days a week, with a one week minimum stay. Ideally our volunteers stay 2-4 weeks.
