  • Description

    Hello! We are two friendly, compassionate young people committed to a healthy, simple, sustainable lifestyle. We decided to leave the city to live and work on an organic fruit and vegetable farm full-time and we love it! Last winter we traveled South America and it was an amazing experience. We love having an off-season because it gives us a chance to continue learning new ways to live in harmony with nature and the people who respect it.

    Our goal this year is to travel Central America for 3 months to explore, learn new skills and experience different ways of life. We are also excited to share knowledge with you and use our skills to give back to host families and/or the local community. We love to work with our hands and care deeply about animals and all the living creatures who support us, so you can plan on us arriving with a positive attitude and ready to help!
