  • Description


    There are 2 of us living in our house (mom + son). Some weekends my siblings visite us.
    Our house is located in Puyo city, the entrance to the jungle, not in the center of the city so it is rounded with nature.
    We have a small garden with over 500 orchid species. We want to convert our house into a orchid guesthouse, so we are looking for volunteers with fresh ideas.
    In the backyard there is just forest, so we would like to build small paths and resting areas where people could connect with the nature.
