We are a family with a project that combines forest conservation with agroecology. Our farm, which has 25 hectars mostly of forest, is located in Mindo, Ecuador one of the most biodiverse areas of the world. In our place there are a lot of birds such as Tucans and hummingbirds, there is also several species of amphibians and mammals. Two rivers surround our place and you can swim in these rivers. We produce with the principle of biodynamic agriculture which sees the Earth as a living being. We have several self-subsistence crops such as palm heart, papaya, pineapple, banana, other fruit trees and cocoa. We also have a orchard where we produce most of our vegetables.

Working as a volunteer is an incredible opportunity to relate to other cultures, to learn Spanish and to get to know other places. It also allows reserves to be self-sustaining, and to be able to protect and take care for these natural areas.
It is a reciprocal process that benefits both the participant and the place where you work, in solidarity where you are needed, giving a different meaning in each one's life by giving valuable time and effort
Ce projet peut impliquer des enfants. Pour en savoir plus, consultez nos directives et conseils ici.
We need help in several activities related with eco-farming. This activities include:
Plant, reforest, work in the vegetable garden, prune, prepare fertilizers, weed, make trails, take care of farm animals, harvest, among others
The volunteers live in a small wooden house, sometimes sharing bedroom with other volunteers. There is just one house, and the members of the family live here. There is no electric light and therefore we do not have Wi-Fi; however, we have a solar panel that allows cell phones to be charged. We have water that comes from its own watersheds.
We generally cook and eat together and serve vegetarian food.
Volunteers can also get involved in other activities, such as meditation, vegetarian cooking, hiking, bird watching, waterfall baths, bonfires, and a space to share their experiences. Also, near the area there are very beautiful places, which are worth visiting. We are located 2 km from Mindo town so you can go there after work.
