  • Description


    Located 30 minutes from Olon, an ecuadorian seaside village, we are a French association whose objective is to help the reforestation of Ecuador. Using a botanical method that allows incredible results, we also wish to help the local population through different social projects. Finally, we are working on the conception of an eco-lodge allowing visitors a guaranteed change of scenery thanks to the diversity of the environment around our land.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are a group of 7 friends who have already travelled a lot around the world. By joining us for a few days or weeks, we will be able to exchange many things such as general knowledge, skills in botany, construction, cultural exchanges ... but also moments of conviviality, friendships, anecdotes around good meals and drinks.

  • Help


    All help is welcome. Being only here for a few weeks, there is a lot to do. Whether it is to work in land development, nursery and house making, agricultural work and vegetable and fruit growing, cooking, etc... we are sure that you will find something to keep you busy while enjoying life to the fullest.

  • Accommodation


    We have a house on-site big enough to accommodate 6 people. It has a magnificent view of the forests and is super quiet. One of our priorities is to build the necessary infrastructure to make the volunteers who wish to help us as comfortable as possible. This is one of our main tasks during these first months. It is important for us that our helpers feel at home.

    Volunteers will have access to a kitchen with food. In addition, there are vegetable gardens and fruit trees in the field.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We are fortunate to be only 30 minutes from the coast and 35 minutes from the famous town of Montanita, known for its great nightlife... During your days off, you can go surfing, sunbathing on the beach, after having lived well all night long... The path that leads to our land is simply exceptional. Indeed, you will go from the coast to an extremely dense tropical forest in only a few kilometers. Ideal for scenic walks and big bowls of fresh air.
