  • Description


    King and Oranahh are a Canadian couple and began their Ecuador vision in 2010! Here we are in 2021, in the building phase.

    Do you value things like health, vitality, and people that truly support one another? Would you like more connection with the land and to practice your critical thinking more often? Do you want to be around others and make lifetime connections and friendships from around the world? Do you want to be surrounded by delicious fruit trees?

    If you're saying "yes, yes, YES", we already know that this mission is for you.

    We seek to learn and grow and are looking for those that want to join us on that journey.

    We are currently building our home-base and want to get in touch with those that resonate with our pursuit, regardless of what month or year you may join us in. We will be preparing after our first baby is born in February, and we want to get in touch with you. Whether that be for a tea beforehand while you travel around Ecuador, or being one of our first team-mates!

    We will have flexible working hours and various jobs to choose from. We will have an organized section you can check into daily to choose what you'd like to build on. Some projects include: Farming (planting, plowing, pruning, plucking...); Building (guest houses, pathways, paving); Detailing (arts, shingles, painting); Maintenance (repairs, cleaning); Behind the scenes (online work, photography/filmography).

    This is not all...this is just what we can think of! Include your skills and interests in your message to us, we will aim to find a great fit for everyone.
