Experience a farm community lifestyle in a tropical environment

Volunteer opportunity in Ecuador – We have this vision which sharing with people from all over the world knowledge, experiences and friendship is the way to make a difference. Farming, gardening, canning foods or preparing meals together are excuses to connect and learn from each other. The farm has a main focus on coffee production and passion fruit. the kitchen garden is always a work in progress with various species for the house concoctions. We have fruit depending on season (mango, oranges, lime, jackfruit) plantain and yucca roots are also available as part of our diet as well as leaves from the wild.

Gardening and agriculture, some building and repairs in the farm. We are associated with a farmers coop and we held workshops about organic farming and coffee production. There is also a good amount of time working with youth from the community and helping them with school, languages, art and sports.

We can offer good experiencias and a true local community immersion due to our close relationship with a farmers cooperative named AGROTABUGA. With the farmers’ coop, there are plenty of chances of giving a hand either in coffee processing (harvesting, drying, roasting or simply drinking coffee) and for sure the Mono Verde Team will attend any calls.

We are well experienced in community support as well as agroforestry and coffee. Quite often, a neighbour or two require a hand with a specific task to be ready to jump into action.
