  • Descripción


    Welcome to our agroecological farm!
    We are located near Calarcá and Córdoba Quindío, in the renowned Coffee Region of Colombia. We will be happy to welcome you to our farm where our family and neighbors have been implementing agroecology for years to recover territories that were previously exploited with agrochemicals and poisons.
    Our mission is to restore the territory through agroecology, permaculture and the conservation of ecosystems to achieve greater autonomy and food and medicinal sovereignty.
    We have agroecological crops of:
    Coffee, Cocoa, Bananas You will also find medicinal herbs. Andean cereals, vegetables and fruits. We place special emphasis on seeking the best synergies between crops and promoting a greater diversity of products.

    We are currently developing a project for the agroecological production and transformation of foods such as arepas, vegetable proteins, special coffee and table chocolate to access new markets and share our knowledge with communities through these bioproducts.
    Part of the support that you will give us will be in the production and preparation of these products to supply local organic markets, as well as in the planting, cultivation and harvesting of seasonal foods.

    We have one of the most beautiful views of the entire department of Quindío and part of the Valley.

    We are a peasant family that lives in the mountains of the Andes, far from the comforts of the city but totally connected with nature and its charm, our way of living is somewhat rustic but always full of love.

    In general, we need help in the production of food such as arepas, vegetable proteins, coffee and chocolate processing, planting crops, doing land maintenance, preparing biofertilizers, harvesting. We also place a strong emphasis on the transformation of products and the development of new by-products, promoting new commercial channels. So any of those skills will definitely add to our project.

    We will be happy to discuss specific tasks in more depth with people interested in our project to ensure that our volunteer friends have a very beneficial, amazing experience and above all want to be part of another culture that has different habits and jobs.
    The days of arrival to our volunteer are Mondays and the days of departure on Saturdays or Sundays
