  • Description


    This is a place in the heart of Ecuador, in the rural area of Santo Domingo de Los Tsáchilas, we truly believe that we can live integrated with nature, in a community with other living things, and with other people. In search of new ways of regenerating the ecosystems, we find Analog Forestry (AF) methodology we take this as our flag and our principles also to give real value to our biodiversity.

    Also, this place will give you a lot of fun and relaxation, we have trails for hiking, kayaking, a ping pong table, animals, also a lot of hammocks places to read, and more.

    In the path of thriving in the community, we are giving experiences to the neighbors especially to the kids, to enhance their respect for nature, we are part of the Forest School network so we need help to create activities to learn by watching movies, birdwatch traveling, classes of English, activities of composting, planting and harvest, activities of writing and reading all this surrounding by nature and using various technics of art.

    We are looking for volunteers like you that want to re-connect and get full immersion with nature. and also exchange experience with eco-building, bamboo building, and anything related, schooling, art, cooking, or anything you want to share with us and the community.

    We can share with you various forms of restoration especially Analog forestry methodology regenerating new forests, and also complexifying others that will take over 100 or more years with the natural process. Here on our land, we have a place defined for conservation botanical garden, other for the production of multi crops like cacao, mangosteen, and others designated for a food forest.

    We work in collaboration with REFA and other farmers to protect nature, in our network we have various similar projects in different parts of the world, and we have connected some of our volunteers with other farms in the world.

    We have accomplished the WAFA certificate, this means that we are capable of giving the first aids in the forest so don't worry you will be safe in your instance here.
