    We are located in the north of Ecuador in the city of Cotacachi where half of the population is indigenous, you will have the opportunity to know and experience the way of life of the local people, their history, their customs and traditions. Live our celebrations especially the solstices and equinoxes that are very important here. And in volunteering they will learn about new cultivation techniques, we work with a new agroforestry method of sintropica agriculture that we learned in Brazil and now we want to replicate it in this region of the country!
