  • Description


    We have an organic farm. We farm, harvest, process and sell organic vegetables, fruits, herbs and other foods in a small scale. The farm is also a place for holistic spiritual growth. We host workshops and events of Organic Agriculture, Yoga, Retreats and especially Native American spirituality and healing practices like sweat lodge and other rituals. It is a space of respect for nature and it has an area of reforestation and conservation.

    The main house is a charming, simple old typical peasant house and the house for travelers is a small one by the river. This is a beautiful spot with an amazing vibe where animals, trees and flowers are free and happy. It has a small river to bathe.

    We have a tropical weather: spring all year long. Day temperature: 25 - 30 degrees Celsius (77 - 87 F) / Night 18 - 25 degrees (64 -77 F). Rainy seasons: April, May / September, October... not as predictable. Altitude: 1380 mts over sea level. (4527 feet)

    We run an alternative way of life with non-industrialized organic farming and promote a natural way to live near nature recovering the wisdom of our ancestors. We support the Indigenous medical doctors (shamans) so they can come from their communities and share their medicines. We have a big territory with an old house, a large amount is destined to reforestation plans (trees are planted al ready). We have beautiful projects with small resources. This is why our infrastructure wouldn't be enough to feed all the volunteers.

    For this reason we are asking for $10,000 COP per day (This is between 3 and 6 dollars, depending on the exchange rate).

    I know you will understand and we are sure you are going to spend a great time, meet wonderful people, learn Spanish, learn about organic farming, construction and get to know Native American (North, Central and South) rituals and healing ceremonies.

    We bet it will be a life transforming experience!
