We are a small organic farm located 15 min from the beach. We have rescue animals, cows, horses, lemons crops, guanabana and more. Originally from Sweden but Ecuador has been our home for more than 20 years. We speak English, Swedish, French and Spanish fluently. There are about 60 hectares of primary forest which we are seeking to protect from deforestation. The forest is beautiful and is home too many animals such as the howler monkeys which you can hear daily and the ever eluding ocelot. We horseback ride, surf, paddle board and much more!!
Help with Eco Projects
Learn to speak spanish and see how an organic farm works in Manabi. Learn how to surf, paddle board, horseback ride and be part of protecting the forest.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
Most of the work is manual labor. We need help building paths through the forest so we can protect it more easily. Fencing, cleaning terrane, making compost, vermiculture, watering, creating organic fertilizer and pesticides, making vegetable patches, etc..
