  • Description

    Description

    We are a certified organic farm that produces vegetables fruits and grains with many years of experience in sustainable animal and plant production. Our Project is very unique and provides a rich learning experience. The Farm is situated between the well known volcanic valley in the cordilleras of Panama and the pacific ocean. The farm contains a forest and maintains itself as a wildlife refuge to native species of flora and fauna.
    We have many years of experience in organic agriculture and are fortunate to work with one of the fathers of organic agriculture in Panama. Our Project has grown from a family farm to a production based Project, trying to balance sustainability, nature conservancy, social responsability with sound agribusiness principles.

    Basic food is supplied, but volunteers cook their own. Much of the food is produced by the farm itself. Please let us know if you have special diet requirements.

    volunteers do not need any prior experience, just a heatlhy work ethic and a good sense or responsability. And will leave with a rich understanding of tropical organic agriculture at its finest and a unique view of panamanian nature and culture. Although keep in mind it is a physical work environment. Also printed t-shirts and caps are provided as souvenirs of the experience. T-shirts for short stays (weeks), t-shirts and caps for long stays (months).
