The Exchange

Volunteering takes place from Monday to Friday, with tasks of sowing, harvesting, fertilizing and maintaining crops, simple but enriching tasks. We have organic food for breackfast, lunch and dinner with products from the farm, we teach the preparation of natural fertilizers, etc. We have nearby attractions like the Mojanda lagoons at 3800 meters above sea level; and the pyramids of Cochasqui. We recommend sun block as we have very sunny days.
