    Welcome to our Finca,

    We are a community led project working to improve the quality of life and trajectory for our families and children.

    We have 10 Hectares of land here in which has 4 acres of coffee ( Harvest is in may / june ) and the rest littered with family gardens medicinal herbs , fruit trees , and pasture.

    Our team here on the farm consists of Local and international experts who have dedicated their efforts for a regenerative framework of production to arrive at a production capacity that meets the needs of local families and other farming families to produce quality , standardized specialty crops , like cacao , fruit trees , coffee and medicinal herbs pending further scientific investigation.

    We are creating public and private alliances to achieve local and state goals for an improved and coordinated horizon for farmers in the sunny state of manabi.

    we put a heavy emphasis on the soil , and look to maintain and introduce nutrient specific organic fertilizers with locally source plant and animal based compounds. we aim to achieve a regenerative certification to demostrate conservation and regenerative practices to farmers in the community , while incentivizing new programs that encourage long term planning and thinking for integral and unified prosperity for farmers through coordination and connection to international markets via certified direct trade methodologies to give a world class transparency to commerce in the coast of ecuador.

    We invite world class volunteers to join us in this effort. of all skillsets and abilities to overcome , the "impossible"challenges that rural communities face and surmount the "helpless"state in which the most vulnerable peoples of our worlds population live.

    We aren't dreamers , we take quantic action towards a future for happiness , properity and joy for the women , children and men we work with on the farm and in the community to grow in character and principle to work together and learn to be productive members of this evolving society , together , hand in hand.

    we welcome volunteers in our journey and our team looks forward to hearing from you.

    You will Encounter an incredible experience here on our finca.

    You will be immersed in a rural family , in the community of tabuga , where life is simply different. There is so much to do every day. you will notice gender roles , farm tasks , basic organizational structure.. all facets of activity in a raw and exceptional state of iniciation.

    Here all work has been impulsed by a need to get ahead , there are no access to jobs , the modest efforts to sustain farming life and entrepenuership do not support a family of 7 , and grandchildren , life is survival here.

    Plain and simple. Volunteers who are willing to come here on the farm will arrive here by a specific calling for change , people looking to forge a better future in the most rugged and wild places of the earth.
    here , in our finca on the pacific coast of ecuador in the dry tropical rainforest 2 miles west from the private beaches of the coast you will find stillness , calm and complacency.

    All signs of peace and tranquility.
    But volunteers who will be most successful here will find not only a purpose but a meaning in their stay.
    They will identify the problems and work to establish long term solutions for the overwhelming social and economic challenges that shodow families and their children from developing in to productive members of society , and more so sheppard them in to submissive roles of survival ... rather than autonomous forms of self sufienciency and thrival in their agriculture , education and interaction with their community.

    Here this is a place for someone who feels a calling , there is something for you here in which only you can unveil.

    the scientist
    the economist
    the social entrepenuer
    the anthropologist
    the archeologist
    the fashion designer

    the educator
    the engineer
    the astronomer
    the geologist
    the mathemitician
    the lawyer

    Adaptability , ingenuity , and the conviction to achieve and overcome will be your primary prerequisites for your qualification.
