  • Description


    ---Please contact host in spanish----

    This Center was created from an initiative of the Pedagogic College in Sucre, in which the reforestation with wild economy and regional development are combined. The ecologic Youthcenter offers since 29 years to group of people from the entire country of Bolivia a very convenient possibility of accomodation in order to conduct seminars and to convert them in praktik ecologic projects such as: with medical herbalgardens, vegetables cultivation, mushrooms ... and a lot more.

    In the meanwhile in this mountain area 500 Hectars have already been planted with over 200.000 trees. In this way this erosioned area of previously bare soil surface converts itself into a green place of forest, meadow, gardens, fruit trees and flowers.

    After an initially sceptical impression/ observation the surrounding population is now planting their own slopes with many trees. A very big forest is born/ has aroused and many neighbours have become forest farmers.

    NOTE: your contact with Workaway will be with Annelie, who is mostly in Germany. You will be welcomed by Ronald and Deyni, the owners of Cajamarca. With them you'll got a what's App Number.


    Este Centro fue creado por iniciativa del colegio pedagogico de Sucre donde se combino el desarollo regional y la economia ecologica. El centro ecologico ofrece desde 29 anos la posibilidad de hacer seminarios, practicas con proyectos ecologicos como : plantas medicinales, cultivos de vegetales, hongos... Y mucho mas!

    En ese espacio de 500 hectarias, ya se ha plantado mas de 200 000 arboles. Con eso se convertio esa area desertica en una selva muy verde con flores, arboles fruteros y jardines.

    Despues de una impresion sceptica del proyecto, ahora mismo la gente local planta sus propios arboles. Una gran selva nacio y muchos vecinos se convertieron en campesinos forestales.

    NOTA : Su contacto primero en Workaway sera Con Annelie quien esta casi siempre en Alemania. Estaran recibidos por Ronald y Deyni, los directores en Cajamarca. Con ellos tendran un numero What's app.
